About

Canadian-made writer Karin Maxey earned her Creative Writing Degree from the University of Victoria. She followed that up with a stint in the magazine world, which she eventually left to pursue a freelance career. Now, Karin is a copywriter by day, screenwriter by night.

Her first produced screenplay, EYE FOR AN EYE, played the 68th Cannes Short Film Corner.
