About the Speaker
Gary Goldstein writes for TV, film and the stage—and is now also a novelist. Gary's latest TV movie, "Lights, Camera, Christmas!" will premiered on Hallmark Channel in November 2022. He has written more than 15 produced TV movies, including the comedies such as, "The Wish List," "Hitched for the Holidays," "This Magic Moment" and "My Boyfriends' Dogs," and the first two movies in the "Flower Shop Mystery" series starring Brooke Shields.

Gary has also sold or optioned a number of original screenplays, has a string of episodic TV credits and has sold half-hour comedy pilots to both NBC and Warner Bros. He was represented on the Los Angeles stage most recently with the World Premiere of his acclaimed three-sisters dramedy "April, May & June," produced as part of its subscription season by Theatre 40 of Beverly Hills. The play won five Broadway World award nominations including Best Local Production.

Other L.A. stage credits include the comedies "Just Men," "Parental Discretion" and "Three Grooms and a Bride," which all enjoyed long, well-reviewed runs. Gary’s family drama "Curtain Call" premiered at Carmel, CA's Pacific Repertory Theatre, after winning the PacRep’s national Hyperion Playwriting Competition.

Gary's first novel, the romantic comedy The Last Birthday Party, was published August 2021 by Hadleigh House. It won a 2022 IBPA Benjamin Franklin award for Excellence in Fiction. His second novel, the family drama The Mother I Never Had, was published in October 2022.
