A Gnome Named Gnorm

Sept. 1988. Having sold our first screenplay, Mystery Date, in a successful bidding skirmish, Terry and I were now the “Flavor of the Week” in Hollywood. We were flown to L.A. on Orion’s dime, and were now aiming for the stars. Or at least our next deal.

A very kind mention on The Incomparable

Omni – Flipper, Washed Up

This was Terry’s favorite, profiling has-been animal actor Flipper — now a joke in the Hollywood community. He anticipated Bojack Horseman by 25 years.

Today’s Chicago Womanizer

Today’s Chicago Womanizer

In 1987, Terry served as Editor in Chief of this April Fool’s parody of Today’s Chicago Woman. It is just as puerile and of-its-time as you might imagine.
