Pen Densham is also the author of Riding The Alligator: Strategies for a Career in Screenplay Writing (And Not Getting Eaten), a how-to guide to screenwriting that advises writers to filter their product by channeling their passion. A wonderful storyteller, Pen brings a hands-on and very heartfelt approach to the craft of screenwriting, which he’ll share with us when he joins in our second hour.

Our first hour will include Part 2 of our conversation with television writer, producer, singer and lyricist Deborah Pearl

Deborah will share more stories about her work with the likes of Andrew Gold, Jackson Browne, Linda Ronstadt, Katey Sagal, Betty Garrett, Ted Danson, Johnny Carson and Barbra Streisand.
