Stephen Whitty graduated from New York University’s School of the Arts with a BFA in Film, the school’s fiction prize, and, obviously, few prospects. He has, nonetheless, written screenplays, published short stories, reviewed movies, and done profiles, essays and other articles for more than 30 years, appearing in magazines from Entertainment Weekly to Cosmopolitan (and picking up a few prizes and a nice collection of outraged letters along the way). Whitty lives in New Jersey with his wife, two children, two dogs, one turtle and far too many DVDs, always sits in the front row, and prefers extra salt, no butter.
