Suspense thrillers that make you go, "WHAT?!" are my thing. I hope my audience enjoys the sensational ride of "feels" I try to plant in my crime thriller stories!
I am currently working on two feature films '"for hire" which are to be released late 2019/early 2020 -- two different production companies.
IMMEDIATE GOALS = Film funding/Production Co. NEEDED!! Seeking production of two original feature scripts, Millions Acts (crime drama/romance) and Overcoming Blood (mystery thriller/drama). SEE their loglines below.
The first two of my quirky novels are on the market, but the last volume of this trilogy is still to come...Winter 2020. They are part of a series with the MOST UNUSUAL NARRATION, providing the audience with an unexpected lens for considering the harsh and violent realities of the real world. Feel free to check out The Teddy Bear Chronicles (NOT a children's series!). Volume I is HOPE IN PARIS! and Volume II is CHLOE's CRUSADE.
WHAT comes later? My paranormal thriller novel and a brother/sister drama... I can't wait!!
I'm so happy to be on STAGE 32 and excited to see more of what this community has to offer. Hopefully, I will have something helpful to offer others as well!
Unique traits: I make fantastic pies from scratch and have oddly quick reflexes.
