Tom Szollosi has written five produced motion pictures, more than one-hundred hours of television, five novels and three "Quicklets," critical "companion pieces" to current best sellers. He has taught screenwriting at UCLA Extension. He lives in his native Los Angeles with his family, and shamelessly enjoys writing about the city and its wide variety of residents. He especially enjoys exploring the seamier side of the city, especially that cheapest of floozies, Hollywood, and the motivations and mutations to be found among the people who populate the region. He loves a good mystery, a good thriller, and finds the psychology of both evil and the people who fight it to be an endlessly fascinating subject.
He wrote the Outer Limits revival series episodes "Small Friends" and "Stranded", both of which have a strong crime and criminal element in their stories and feature well drawn characters in violent situations.
