ABOUT ME

Hello, my name is Richard Dean Starr and I’m the co-founder and Senior Copywriter at Success Copywriting.

I’ve been a professional marketing consultant, copywriter, business owner, author, and screenwriter for more than 30 years. In fact, I sold my first professional writing at the age of 17, and sold my first copywriting project (writing Yellow Pages ads; remember those?) less than two years later.

My experience in a wide variety of fields means I have the knowledge you need to dramatically improve your organization’s marketing response rate. Guaranteed.
 

My Life In Marketing

 
Over the course of my long career, I’ve completed a large number of powerful, high-impact marketing initiatives for my clients across the United States and around the world. Projects I’ve been involved with range from single-page websites to sales letters, press releases, multi-page brochures, and much, much more.

Clients I’ve worked with include a “Who’s Who” of the Fortune 500 and the Fortune 100, from Apple, Inc., Hilton, and the Walt Disney Company to Sunterra, White (formerly White Mop Wringer Co.), the Jimmie Rodgers Museum, and Ramada Suites, just to name a few.

But my work (and my life experience) hasn’t been limited to marketing. I’m also an ecommerce business investor and a nationally-recognized author, editor, and script doctor with more than 200 published books, screenplays, graphic novels, comics, articles, columns, and stories to my credit.
 

My Life In Entertainment

 
Since the age of 17 I’ve written licensed media tie-in fiction for such world-famous characters as Hellboy, Zorro, The Green Hornet’s Kato, Kolchak: The Night Stalker, the Lone Ranger, and Sherlock Holmes. I’ve collaborated with no less than three New York Times bestselling authors, and my original stories have appeared alongside such luminaries as Stephen King, Max Allan Collins (Road to Perdition), Guillermo del Toro (Hellboy, Pan’s Labyrinth, Frank Darabont (Director of The Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile), and the late Graham Joyce (Black Dust, The Stormwatcher).

As a leading independent screenwriter and consultant through my production services company, Pinnacle Hollywood, I’ve also “doctored” numerous feature film screenplays since the early nineties including one of the biggest science fiction blockbusters of that decade; I even went on to write dialogue for a theme park ride based upon the same film.

Noted actors who have starred in scripts I’ve worked on include Malcolm McDowell, Zack Galifianakis, Bryan Batt, Richmond Arquette, and Costas Mandylor, among others. Click here for my IMDB page.
 

But Back In The Real World…

 
Pointing all of this out to you doesn’t mean that I’m bragging. Far from it! I mention it only to illustrate that my extensive personal and professional experience provides a tremendous advantage for you and your organization…one you won’t find anywhere else.

The fact is, I bring not only expertise to the table, but perspective. And that insight has tangible, measurable value when it comes to delivering real results for your business or organization.

Still not convinced? Why not give my office a call TODAY for a FREE, no-obligation consultation. Let’s chat for a bit; I think you’ll quickly see for yourself how my team can be of help with your next marketing or consulting project.

Until then, I wish you all success…and greatly appreciate you visiting our website!

Sincerely,
RDS Signature
