Born in 1961 and writing since 1967, Lance Woods’s first script was a one-page episode of the Batman TV series. The fine works of scriptwriting heroes as diverse as Neil Simon, William Goldman, James L. Brooks and Rod Serling corrupted him further. As a result, he has served as the creator/writer of SuperHuman Times for Prometheus Radio Theatre since 2006.
His prose works, published by Firebringer Press, include the short stories "The Gravest Show Unearthed" in the anthology Elsewhere in the Middle of Eternity (2016) and "Dead Air" in the anthology Somewhere in the Middle of Eternity (2014); and Heroic Park: A SuperHuman Times Novel (2012). Additionally, he has had two comedy-mysteries – Breeding Will Tell and Murder Case – produced by the Baltimore Playwrights Festival and has written for more than 25 years in areas of the comic-book industry he doesn’t like to talk about on his own time.
When he isn't daydreaming about writing under the palm trees of Orlando, he lives far, far away from them with his wife and son in a situation comedy format outside of Baltimore.
