Guy Cote spent his formative years in Sanford, Maine pretending to be an adventurer and emulating fictional characters he saw on the silver screen.  He eventually tired of living vicariously through other people’s creations, so he began writing his own screenplays.  He completed his first script, The Magic of a Lifetime, shortly before graduating from The University of Maine. With a script and a freshly minted Bachelors Degree in hand, Guy moved to Florida to work in the state’s burgeoning film industry.  In the process, he wrote five more scripts: Tried and TrueG.I. Joe: The Making of a Hero, The Paper Trail, Soulmate and The Widowmaker.  

Guy’s fascination with other times and other places eventually drew him back into academia where he earned his Masters Degree in history from The University of South Florida.  Thereafter, he accepted a position teaching history and dedicated himself to the creation of his first novel. Long Live the King: Book One of the Charlemagne Saga was published by World Castle Publishing in 2012. In 2013, Guy completed his second novel, Tried and True, which is based on a screenplay he wrote with two filmmakers. Tried and True is currently in pre-production to become a major motion picture.    

Like most authors, Guy relishes feedback from his readers.  Feel free to visit and leave him a message at

"Yet, in their own way, the artist and the scientist hold to the tradition of experimentation and each would agree to respect the authority of the imagination." ~Paul Gwiazdowski

Thank you Paul for a wonderful evening. You delivered a well-composed medley of music and poetry. Lucky us!
