Registered Critic: Heidi Mastrogiovanni - Talkin' About Stuff She's Written 'n' Stuff
Heidi Mastrogiovanni is a graduate of Wesleyan University. She was chosen as one of ScreenwritingU’s 15 Most Recommended Screenwriters of 2013. Heidi is a member of the Writers Guild of America West and the Authors Guild. She contributes book reviews to the Washington Independent Review of Books and the New York Journal of Books. A dedicated animal welfare advocate, Heidi lives in Los Angeles with her musician husband and their rescued senior dogs.
