Ever since Chris Buono's short romance had placed in the WRITERS' Journal Romantic Fiction Contest, he wanted to write romance.
Due to WRITERS' Journal's recognition of that short story, the magazine had put Chris (Christopher L. Buono) on as a contributing ed, as well as had asked him to pen its screenwriting column. During that time, Christopher had compiled/edited the 1st title for Writers' Journal Books--a div he'd developed for Val-Tech Media, publisher of WJ.
Christopher had also been the pub/ed-in-chief of Writer's Guidelines & News, a quarterly mag for writers. The late, great ALL MY CHILDREN/CITIZEN KANE star Ruth Warrick had been one of his columnists.
He is a graduate of Writer's Digest's Novel Writing School, has written both drama/farce for stage; screwball comedy screenplay.
He has interviewed both Aaron Sorkin (Oscar-winning screenwriter); Melissa Carter (Emmy-winning TV writer). Stage/TV-legend actress Linda Lavin had also requested to read his sitcom bible/sample scripts.
Now Chris is back with Love/Horror/writing full time! He'd entered Harlequin's #SYTYCW15 contest with HER BOSS'S SURPRISE--a 50K-word conflict-driven, contemporary romance. In Aug 2015, that rom had been 1 of 200 highlighted by Wattpad:
