GRITS

DRAMA pilot
Co-Writer with Ryann Ferguson
Second-Rounder, Austin Film Festival Script Competition, 2018

“Right from the beginning I thought this was good and then it kept getting better. So much so that I actually was talking about it out loud. It read like a beautiful novel and came to life in all senses. This is a strong mystery/suspense episodic with intriguing/original/complicated characters and unique and underrepresented location. High potential for series.” - AFF

Short bio

Autumn’s background in acting and Creative Writing degree fostered her desire to create stories of her own. Autumn partnered with Ryann Ferguson, playwright and novelist, in 2015. They are perhaps the only female writing team in Hollywood to be matchmade by their parents, who were committed hippies together in the 70s. With a diverse slate of dramas and dramedies, they’ve developed several original scripts that shed light on lesser-known perspectives of the female hero. Their work has received various commendations from Austin Film Festival and HBO.

Autumn has also collaborated with TV writer Darren O’Hare. They have been tapped to write the adaptation of the true comeback story of singer-songwriter and country royalty Hilary Williams, based on her book Sign of Life.

Autumn’s prior writing work includes copywriting, songwriting, and she is a published poet. She also produced and starred in the award-winning dark comedy feature, Avalanche, available to stream now on Amazon Prime Video.

Autumn is currently writing a highly personal half hour dramedy and a collection of confessional essays.
