About the Author

Claudia Johnson & Matt Stevens met on the faculty of the FSU Film School and have been writing together since. Two of their scripts were finalists for the Sundance Screenwriters Lab, and their recent feature, Ruby—based on Claudia’s doc The Other Side of Silence: The Untold Story of Ruby McCollum—has been optioned by Invitation Entertainment. Their screenplay Scrooge in Love is based on their novella, A Christmas Belle, a sequel to Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. They were twice named "Star Speakers" at L.A.’s Creative Screenwriting Expo for their co-writing workshops. Claudia left FSU to teach at USC’s Writing for Film & Television Division, and Matt is a Senior Copywriter and Digital Content Specialist in L.A.
