A screenwriter and novelist. I have been a writer for many years, and currently working on a revision for my screenplay titled...
HELL AT 30 BELOW. A compelling, romantic, Vietnam era drama based on true events in the town of Duluth, Minnesota -- a town notorious for its cold winters.
During the winter of 1972, before there were support hot-lines and shelters for women in crisis, a battered young woman, ROSE, commits herself to a state mental hospital, to escape her abusive husband. Behind those walls, in her bizarre surroundings, she struggles to resolve her current crisis and her troubled past through therapy sessions with the hospital psychiatrist. Eventually, Rose must gather the strength and courage to face the ultimate battle for her life, and find her way back to the man she never stopped loving; her husband's older brother.
A screenplay adaptation from my novel HELL AT 30 BELOW.
