Frederick Ponzlov, a native of Long Beach, California, is a produced screenwriter, acting teacher, and award-winning actor. A graduate of the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee, he studied acting at the Neighborhood Playhouse in New York and then journeyed west to Los Angeles. There he pursued a screenwriting career, and his first outing, Undertaking Betty, starring Naomi Watts, Christopher Walken, Brenda Blethyn, and Alfred Molina, won a BAFTA. Frederick has taught acting for the last 30 years and continues to do so in Long Beach. The entity of Solomon has been with him most of his life, and after years of silence, this book marks his public debut.
