Writer Biography - Joe Alo


Technology specialist by day and pop culture fanatic by night from New England. With a passion for film, books, and pop culture, I have had a fascination with the horror genre starting at an early age. Slasher films are among my favorites, as well as Stephen King novels. King, along with personal experience and a little bit of local history, inspired the creation of my horror manuscript, The Street Between the Pines, which has placed as a Finalist in two screenplay competitions as well as won two competitions: Best Horror at the Los Angeles Film and Script Festival, Best Thriller at the Fright Night Film Fest. The novel has recently placed as a quarterfinalist in the ScreenCraft Cinematic Book competition.

Saturdays is a ten-part comedy-drama, loosely based on my life in the restaurant industry, and it takes place over one crazy summer.
