D. L. Osment's first novel, I CANNES, a fictionalized account of true adventures at the Cannes Film Festival, was born on a flight from Toronto to Barcelona for the 2014 Cannes Film Festival. Someone had left a romance novel in her seat pocket. Osment read the first two chapters and thought, "I could write this." As described in her book, she cannibalized her life and produced the 5-star rated erotic novel. This book was followed by its sequel, SKETCHES OF SPAIN. Her latest film is 2014's multi-award-winning SANDBOY, directed by Vittoria Colonna di Stigliano and executive produced by Julian Lennon. She co-produced AFI's UBUNTU'S WOUNDS, which won Best Short Film at the Pan-African Film Fest in LA, screened at Cannes and Toronto, and was distributed by HBO. She was American Production Coordinator for the documentary BURMA SOLDIER, distributed by HBO and winner of the 2011 Grand Jury Prize for Best Documentary at the UN Film Festival. She consulted on THE FORSAKEN LAND by Vimukthi Jayasundara of Sri Lanka which won the Caméra d'Or at Cannes in 2006. She has been a professional writer since she was thirteen years old, first as a journalist, then as a screenwriter, now focusing on fiction. Her third novel, DEATHMYTH, is an urban fantasy. She has just finished "The Peter & The Wolf Trilogy," which follows a young rock musician from his 18th birthday through the wilds of ‘60s and ‘70s rock and roll. The first volume, BECOMING THE WOLF, is currently in competition for an Amazon Kindle Scout publishing contract.
