Edward Savio grew up in the bucolic bedroom community of Berlin, Connecticut. After Howard University, Savio moved to Los Angeles to pursue screenwriting. Where he became a ten-year overnight success, selling the first of a half-dozen scripts a decade after arriving in Hollywood.
Savio’s first long-form novel, “Idiots in the Machine,” was his ‘anti-screenplay,’ giving him the freedom to explore and develop deeper characters, multiple narratives, and play with language. He wrote“Idiots” with the certain belief that no one could make it into a movie. Not even him. Then Sony Pictures optioned “Idiots” for the Academy Award-winning producers of “Forrest Gump” for 7 figures. After three more six-figure deals with Sony and Disney, Savio moved to San Francisco to start a family, and after years of commuting between homes in SF and LA, he chose to shift the focus of his writing toward novels so he could spend more time with his children. He lives and writes in the home where Danielle Steel wrote her first two breakout novels.
