Homepage of Brian Voncannon

After writing a couple of books, I decided to go on a new venture...screenwriting. Due to a battle with a disabling illness, I am now a former full time law enforcement officer/SWAT team member. I now spend a great deal of time writing books and screenplays. Although I do this mainly for the enjoyment of doing it, I have found that writing the script is only half of the battle!

I created this page to simply give the reader a quick look at my projects including books and screenplays. I have also included a few related links that you may find interesting.  I hope you enjoy your stay...maybe we will (or won't) do lunch!!

"The Keepers"
Based on the novel Shadows: Diary of a Ninja by B. Voncannon
An inquisitive high school student, Joe Hopper, befriends a mysterious oriental gentleman that moves in next door. Captivated by this secretive man, he discovers that he is a ninja master and will soon be on his way to becoming one himself. A journey into the ancient art of silent death, undying love, and a fierce battle with evil awaits him.

Background on this screenplay
The ultimate origin of this screenplay dates back to 1985, when B. Voncannon hand wrote the entire manuscript in one composition book. The manuscript was placed in a shoe box and stored away. Nearly 16 years later, Brian discovers the dusty shoe box and retrieves the manuscript, edits it, and publishes a short novel based entirely on that original writing. Shadows: Diary of a Ninja ISBN 0-595-17233-4 is published by iUniverse.com. This screenplay was represented by an agent for one year, but is currently out of contract and available for purchase from the author directly.

"My very first screenplay was The Keepers. I wrote, edited, and gained representation with this screenplay in less than 3 months. Can't say that I will ever be able to do that one again!"  I have recently decided to take up music again. Years ago, I played the trumpet and picked on the guitar a bit, but definitely no Eddie Van Halen! I decided to start pounding on the electric guitar and went with a Bronze series Warlock by B.C. Rich. Now I've switched to an Epiphone SG g400. Shucks, I've even designed my own guitar picks!
