I can faithfully state that I am now officially an "award winning" writer, having won second place in Larry Brody's Script Spectacular contest on "TVWriter.com." This was a national writing contest, sponsored by a veteran television writer. The teaser for that second place script, "N.C.I.S.: ABSCENTIA," is included on this webpage.
