About Your Hosts

ERIC HAVENS (he/him) 

Eric is an award-winning screenwriter and novelist whose work includes, Call Girl, The Stylist, A Message of Hope From the Terminally Depressed, and The Devil and Me. He has won several ‘Best Screenplay’ awards from an array of film festivals as well as placing in the quarterfinals of the prestigious Academy Nicholl Fellowships in Screenwriting. His novels have been praised as “the right blend of brains, heart and pulp,” “captivating from the first page,” and “apocalyptic and hard-boiled.” An internet commenter even once claimed that, “Havens is truly, truly terrible.” Eric is also a longtime critic and journalist for several film sites such as Downright Creepy and Boom Howdy. Recently, Eric and his colleagues have launched a Kickstarter Campaign to turn The Stylist into a feature-length film. For more information about the campaign, please visit: http://bit.ly/2lMh0OF.
