Meet the Author

David Scott Milton started as an early member of Theater Genesis alongside Sam Shepard, Leonard Melfi, and Murray Mednick. His first plays, "The Interrogation Room" and "Halloween Mask," were produced there. Later plays, "Duet" and Bread," were done at the American Place Theatre. "Duet," starring Ben Gazzara, went on to Broadway. Milton's play "Skin" won the Neil Simon Playwriting Award. His screenplay, "Born to Win," became Ivan Passer's first American film and starred George Segal and Karen Black. He has published six novels. "Paradise Road" was cited by the Mark Twain Journal "for significant contribution to American literature." From 1977 until recently, he taught playwriting and screenwriting at USC. For thirteen years, he taught creative writing to men at the maximum security prison in Tehachapi, California. He wrote an article about the prison for the Los Angeles Times, and he created a one-man show, "Murderers Are My Life," which was nominated as best one-man show by the Valley Theater League of Los Angeles.
