Allison Burnett – from screenplay to fiction

Allison Burnett knows the Hollywood dream better than anyone. After a decade of writing fiction and screenplays he says went “widely unread”, he moved to Los Angeles, where he started making a living as a writer within a year. He wrote for many movies, including “Autumn in New-York”, “The Feast of Love” and “Fame”.

But as much as he enjoys writing for the movies, Allison says it was always a second choice. His first love is writing fiction. After ten years of success in Hollywood, Allison decided to go back to his roots in fiction. His first published work, “Christopher : a tale of seduction” was a finalist in the Pen USA center fiction contest in 2004.

His last novel, “Death by Sunshine” came out in 2012.
