Heidi Mastrogiovanni –http://verdeneandgleneda.com/
A graduate of Wesleyan University, Heidi Mastrogiovanni moved to New York right after college to pursue an acting career. While she was studying at the legendary Manhattan Punchline Comedy Theatre, she formed a sketch comedy group with a few of her fellow students. It was in this troupe that Heidi discovered she was a much better writer than performer. “Seriously, I’ve seen video of myself on stage and it is not pretty. I am actually caught on tape answering a question before it was asked. Yikes.”
Heidi was honored to be chosen as one of ScreenwritingU’s 2013 Most Recommended Screenwriters. Her comedic novel, “Lala Pettibone’s Act Two,” will be appearing on a Kindle screen near you later this year. Heidi is thrilled to be working on the web comedy series “Verdene and Gleneda,” the basis for the upcoming sitcom “A Town Called Peculiar.”
