Did You Know?
On getting his foot in the door at "The Young And The Restless": No one knew I wrote soaps on the side. Kay Alden would send me old outlines of shows that had already aired, and I'd write scripts and send them to her for feedback.
Was teaching at a special education school in Greensboro, North Carolina, when he met soap opera writer Kay Alden
who offered him to have a look at his writing work. After 18 months of back and forth, Best got a six-month-trial-gig on the writing team of
The Young and the Restless
. He has been a writer on the two Bell soaps ever since.
