Part of RPL's Writes of Spring Programming. You have a story, we can help you tell it.
Presented in partnership with the Department of English at the University of Regina.

Loanshark Chili Palmer has done his time as a gangster, so when "business" takes him to Los Angeles to collect a debt from down and out filmmakerHarry Zimm, he talks tough and then pitches Harry a script idea. Everything would be smooth for this cool new producer, if it were't for the drug smugglers and gangsters who won't leave him alone.

Sara Smits received an undergraduate degree in Cultural Studies (2005) and a Master's degree in English Literature (Public Texts) (2009) from Trent University. Much of that Masters work focused on popular culture, horror fiction, and the creative process. Sara is also interested in crime and detective fiction, reality/unreality in television and film, print culture, and creative writing -- both exploring the creative process from an academic standpoint and as a well-published crime/horror writer.
