William J. Meyer

I am a writer originally from Wisconsin now living in Los Angeles, CA.

I like stories about robots, mythology, and romance-- sometimes all at once.
I am currently working on plays, screenplays, novels, and audiodrama.

Plays

  • The Transposition of Chloë Brontë
    Chloë and Max’s relationship is strained when they move in together and Chloë’s sleep paralysis appears to open a portal to another dimension.
  • The Eye in Violet
    In the year 1985 strangers Audrey and Samantha are forced to fight together during an alien occupation in the American Midwest, a world transformed by a Medieval regression of dead technologies and barbaric survival.

    Their new friendship is put to the test when they learn they are both seeking the same alien artifact-- a mysterious Eye rumored to grant special abilities.
  • Kaiju
    Following a wildfire near a nuclear testing facility, a giant monster appears and destroys Hollywood.

    This is a quick-change rapid-fire real-time journey from Grauman's Chinese Theatre to Griffith Observatory.
  • The Birthing Pit
    John and Castella flee a mysterious pestilence at the end of the American Revolutionary War, sailing home to Rhode Island from the Caribbean. But when the farmer Atabei kills their ship’s captain during what might be a supernatural storm, tragedy stalks all three.
  • The Maimed King
    Joseph and Evelake arrive on the shores of England, planning to secret the Holy Grail inland to the town of Glastonbury. The brigand tracking them is the least of Evelake’s perils as he begins to doubt the foundation of his new Christian faith.
  • Waiting to Die in a Tent, A Few Thoughts on Valhalla
    The old viking warrior Einarr and his young friend Mikel battle to protect their distant city of Reidun. When Einarr is mortally wounded, Mikel sets out to locate Einarr’s estranged daughter Kára for a final father-daughter reunion. But before they can return, a mysterious figure finds Einarr alone-- and about to breathe his last.
