Writer Biography - Marion McDowell

Marion McDowell is a freelance scriptwriter from Juneau, Alaska, where the rugged weather gave her a deep desire to not be out in it. Luckily, the local cinema was warm, dry and had good stories. After a foreign exchange to Northern Ireland in the 90s turned more permanent, she developed as an actor and writer within the local film and television industry.

Recent works include COSTUME DRAMA, which explores what happens when you insult a witch on Halloween night, and BOOS UP, a farce about rival ghosts competing to haunt a pub. Marion stopped answering questions about her age when she hit 35 and lives in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
