Alison Star Locke: Biography

I started off in life obsessively stalking movie theaters and video stores all over the U.S., mostly in San Antonio, Texas and Oakland, California. Alison earned a B.F.A. in Filmic Writing from the University of Southern California’s School of Cinema Television, where I won the Jack Nicholson Screenwriting Award.

I have won multiple awards and contests, including receiving laurels from numerous film festivals. I live in the L.A. suburbs with my husband, the editor John Nelson, our genius villain daughter and our cat, Conan. I really, really love Chipotle and talking all things horror.
