Steve Oskie’s plays have been produced in New York, Washington, and Philadelphia. He is the author of Mean Thoughts, a semi-finalist for the Peter Taylor Prize for the Novel, and is the ghostwriter of Jerry Blavat’s autobiography, You Only Rock Once, which has been published in hardcover, paperback, and audio book editions. Steve’s short fiction has appeared in Textures, Pierien Spring, and other literary journals.
Oskie’s screenplay, “Dead Meat,” was a finalist in a screenplay competition at the Terror Film Festival, and his additional screenwriting efforts include an adaptation of “Mean Thoughts,” a pair of short films that appeared in a screening series in Philadelphia, and a three-part teleplay based on the life of Jerry Blavat.
On a personal note, Oskie dropped out of college to “become a writer,” worked a series of odd jobs, and labored in obscurity like George Orwell in Down and Out in Paris and London. Whether his decisions were prudent or not, there’s nothing he can do about them now.
Mark Glassman does a surprisingly good job of feigning confidence, fooling everyone but himself.
