Stephen Mouton

Dr. Stephen Mouton wrote the screenplay for "Fat City, New Orleans" based on his experiences growing up as a high school teenager near the "Fat City" section of Metairie, a suburb of New Orleans in the 1970s. "That 70's Show" composer Brett Perry wrote much of the background score. The movie also contains songs performed by Elvis Costello, The Knack and written by KC of KC and the Sunshine Band. Stephen Mouton's directorial debut was made with Freudian Eyebrow, a quirky thriller that follows unsuspecting college students guarding a dark secret after signing up for a midnight experiment to improve their grades. Freudian Eyebrow went on to win several awards including an Accolade award in the experimental category. Stephen Mouton currently resides in Los Angeles with his wife and children and is a Clinical Psychologist in a private practice and a Business Psychology consultant to corporations developing specialized programs in developmental disabilities, involuntary psychiatric hospitalizations, learning disabilities and cognitive-behavior therapy. His background incites unique, and innovative story ideas.

Phone Call Alert! 

(Please read, thanks.) 

Old Timey Switchboard Operator Cartoon


Due to the COVID-19 onslaught, we currently cannot take incoming phone calls.  

And since nobody reads anything, I've simply removed the phone number from the site.  

A notification about phone calls:  due to the COVID-19 plague, we've significantly increased our incoming inquiries--nearly double our usual volume--and the number of incoming inquiries by phone has been literally overwhelming.  Although most writers will say that their call "will only take 15 minutes," the truth is, that after 10 years of doing this, most author inquiry calls take an hour.  45 minutes at best. I'm currently receiving 7-10 calls/day, and due to that, I've had to stop accepting incoming phone calls, which my voicemail will tell you. You can leave a message--I can't call you back without one--and if a call is needed, I will of course call you.  But we have very complete and extensive email replies, handouts and our website is very informative. Almost all the questions that I receive during a call are actually already answered on our site, or are, in fact, publishing questions, not questions about our services, what we do, what we offer, or the like.  I already handle between 90-130 emails/day, as it is. I can't handle that many emails and take 7-10 hours of calls each day. I can't. So, in order to be able to answer this huge email volume, to help the greatest number of people, with my time, I've had to stop accepting calls.  I'm sorry, but that's just how it is. I'm in the process of setting up a call-appointment function, for free 15-minute calls to answer questions from new prospective customers and longer paid sessions for folks who generally want consulting on "publishing," generally (and for prospective kids' book publishers, as a special category of paid consulting).  But that functionality isn't yet set up. I hope to get that working the 3rd week of July, sometime.  

Thank you for your understanding.
