About Donnalyn

Suspense thrillers that make you go, "WHAT?!" are my thing. I hope my audience enjoys the sensational ride of "feels" and surprises I try to plant in my suspense thrillers/dramas!

Last year my goal was to sign with a manager, and it happened. I'm proud to be represented by Tammy Hunt of CSP Management. This year, it's time to get one of my originals actually made. Fingers crossed!

In 2019, I completed two "for hire" feature films, one of which is on track to be released in late 2022/early 2023. I also worked with Hollywood development pro Julia Verdin in 2020/2021 to complete my Sketches pilot. My original movie scripts, Shunned and Traumatic, are being considered for production by several reputable productions companies. Finally, my original TV pilot Special Agent (developed with Marla A. White) is also seeking a home for production. I'm excited to see what 2022 brings!!

SHOUT OUT to Stage 32. If it weren't for this site, my scripts would be a mess, and no one in Hollywood would ever have seen them. So I hope screenwriters take advantage of the Script Services here. All of my scripts have earned placement or awards in screenplay contests, including HollyShorts, Big Apple FF, Flicker's Rhode Island International FF, and NOLA Horror Film Festival.

Unique traits: I make fantastic pies from scratch and have oddly quick reflexes.
