Welcome to J.Wachowski



I love stories.


Fiction. Nonfiction. Screenplays. The occasional recipe card.

The mystery novel, “In Plain View,” helped launch the Carina Press imprint. Thousands of copies have been sold worldwide. My husband has dined well on the royalties. Twice.

The noir screenplay, "Garbageman", about a genius sanitation engineer with a naked ghost problem, was optioned by Warner Brothers. I wish they'd make it already.
