Frank D’Angeli’s first spec script, Columbo: Murder by Suicide, was purchased by Universal at the personal behest of series star, Peter Falk. Frank’s second Columbo script was awarded top honors in a Movie of the Week Screenplay Competition.
His debut novel, STRANDED, (written under the pen name of Douglas Wentworth) won the 2012 Independent Publisher Book Awards-Gold Medal in sci-fi/fantasy. Producer Lane Shefter Bishop, of Vast Entertainment, believed the book had very strong potential to be adapted to the screen. The associated screenplay, co-written with David Hogan, was a finalist in the Stage32 4th Annual Sci-Fi/Fantasy Competition and optioned by Broadway’s Kenneth Teaton. Frank’s second book, CarnEvil, was the top-rated horror novel in the 2014 Book Pipeline Competition. As Carnival of Evil, it is now a front-facing story for Radish Fiction’s push into the horror genre. Frank’s first short horror story, The Tower, was the Adult Category Winner of the 2015 Saugus.Net Short Horror Story Contest.
