Steve Trautmann was born and raised in California.

Directly after High School he joined the U.S. Air Force and became an Arabic translator. After the USAF, he went to College and studied Theatre and Film at UCLA, graduating with B.A.

Don studied screenwriting in Oregon and wrote novels (the Kindle versions of Lie of Duty and Net-Stalker are still available internationally on Amazon), and wrote his first screenplay, the film adaptation of Net-Stalker in 2001 and had it optioned in 2002. To gain experience he wrote script coverage for two art-house Hollywood studios from 2002-2004, and for the past eight years Don has collaborated on sitcom pilots and several feature films.His tastes in writing run the gamut from drama to comedy to animation, even horror, and my research skills are the very best. His script, Rommel, was a semi-finalist in 2013 in the Scriptapalooza Screenplay Competition.
Morvay is the author and creator of the popular and controversial comic book LOBSTER GIRL. As a kid, he was a comic book aficionado as well as an avid reader of fiction. He really enjoyed the old comic classics of literary works, Dickens’ Oliver Twist and Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. He found it challenging to write a fictionlike plot with fully developed characters in a mere 31 pages. These characters journey through a hellish labyrinth of subway tunnels to monasteries and prisons. Jon also wanted the blood, sex and gore; but it was important to have sympathetic characters and pathos. LOBSTER GIRL is Pop Gothic Horror.
