Tim Westland

I'm a multi-genre Screenwriter based in Southern California.  SciFi, Horror, Drama(dy), and Action/Adventure are my favorites. I thrive on deadlines, write tight visual action and believable dialogue. Equally happy writing solo or with collaborators. I like stuff that's gritty and emotional, but humor is in my script DNA. Positive and upbeat attitude. I work toward Yes.

My scripts run the gamut... from hard Scifi to ribald Dramady to serious Crime Drama to batshit crazy Horror.

Check them out below.
