STEPHEN LODGE is the co-writer of Kenny Rogers' only down-and-dirty Western epic, "Rio Diablo." Other screenwriting credits include, "The Honkers," starring James Coburn, and "Kingdom of the Spiders," starring Star Trek's William Shatner. Steve lives in Rancho Mirage, California with his wife, Beth, and their two dogs.


Steve was influenced greatly by "B" Westerns as a youth; he wanted to be an actor from a very early age and found visits to movie sets fascinating. The gift of an 8mm movie camera at age 10 allowed him to write, direct and star in his own "Productions". He began his professional acting career at 12; at age 16 he performed at Hollywood's Famous "Corriganville" Western Street, Back Lot Movie-Ranch. After college, Steve was hired by Columbia Pictures; his interest in writing had been seriously developing since high school. During his 2 years at Columbia, he was Assistant to the Producer on TV's Camp Runamuck. After that, he would spend several seasons with the popular Network TV series, The Fugitive. Steve has spent his entire life around the movie business, working on numerous TV series, Movies of the Week, and Major Features -- all the while writing, and at times, selling his scripts.
