About cpetrone

Hi! My name is Carly and I want to make you laugh. My main goal is to become a sitcom writer. I've recently finished my first pilot called Powder Perfect and I'm currently working on another called The Pact. Unfortunately, paying the bills is also a monthly goal that must be accomplished. That was my long winded answer of saying that I'm also a freelance writer. Please contact me at cpetronester@gmail.com for writing opportunities. You can also find me writing about my life at http://carlypea.wordpress.com.
