Anywhere you go in this day and age from Los Angeles to Afghanistan, you can sneeze and hit a screenwriter, a director, an actor or someone who just wants to hold the boom. I live in Orange County, a place that is quickly being marketed as the next “IT” place. Yet, I and my fellow writers can’t be taken seriously – even when we sneeze. I have my name on three different projects currently. One script I adapted from my father Alejandro Morales’ novel, The Brick People. One that I am working on with my brother, Greg Morales (a doctor in Los Angeles) and our good friend, Craig Gill, about the traumas of young refugees from Sudan coming to America. Finally, one I co-wrote with a coworker of mine, Charles Crowley. This last one is based on the life of Tina Modotti, the talented Italian photographer turned political activist.
