Born and raised in southern California, Cody W Urban has always had a passion for storytelling. His earliest memories include writing stories and having his mom do the actual writing because he was too young to spell. After writing numerous short stories and unfinished books through his young life, he wrote one story that close friends encouraged him to make into a movie. Feeling inspired, he wrote his first screenplay and rallied his friends, family, and church into producing MY BEST FRIEND. After making two feature films with 7D Studios, Cody has graduated from California State University, Northridge with a BA in Cinema and Television Arts and continues to work and strive to be the best writer, editor, and director he can be.
After writing myriad screenplays, a particular one garnered special attention at a festival. It was liked by the judges so much, they sent it to an agency and before long, Cody had himself representation at The Brogan Agency. After a period of time, he felt it a wise decision to adapt the screenplay into a novel, and thus Nicholas: The Fantastic Origin of Santa Claus was written.
In 2008, he married Heather and the two of them actively involve themselves in their church and with their beloved dogs, Juneau and Bailey.
