Welcome to our website. We are authors as well as film and television writers and producers. We love to create in a variety of different mediums and our mission is to inspire and entertain with our movies, books and TV series.
Before we met, we were both involved in the entertainment business, James as a writer and Elizabeth as an entertainer. Then we were introduced on a blind date by some mutual stuntman friends and in time we became partners in marriage and in business.
The first children’s book from Bruner and Stevens is now available! Buy Mister D: A Children’s Picture Book about Overcoming Doubts and Fears from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or BigTentBooks. Also available for Kindle.
Mister D is written by Elizabeth Stevens and illustrated by Daniela Frongia.
Misadventures in Hollywood: Guest Interview – John Farley Edition – Part I
We interviewed John Farley, our son-in-law, in July 2013, but haven’t been able to put the interview online until now. We have enough material to break it into two parts. We will post Part 2 next week, so be on the look-out.

I actually thought that if a song became a number one hit, you would become famous and make a lot of money…Well, evidently not. Continue reading →
“INVASION USA” – no, this post isn’t about Whoopie Goldberg almost playing the female lead, or what happened to the carefully crafted story that was in the original screenplay, or how the movie got made in the first place – we’ll get to those in later posts.
So, towards the end of production on the film, I got this frantic call from Cannon Films asking me to immediately fly down to the Atlanta location to rewrite the ending of “INVASION USA”. Continue reading →
There are already gazillions of great, informative entertainment industry blogs out there. We love these blogs and get a lot out of them, but we didn’t know if we could necessarily add anything of value in our own blog. We felt that it is all already out there. This has held us back from blogging.
We finally realized that we have many stories to tell about our adventures in movies, music, books and television – and we’re living more of them all the time. Plus, we have heard many great stories from friends and associates. That’s when the light bulb went on. Let’s write about our past and ongoing adventures and misadventures in the world of Hollywood.
