Born and raised in Hawai'i. Elementary Ed teacher for ten years. Wrote, illustrated, and published "Jus' Plain ole Daisy" as a result, and have now adapted this children's tale to a contemporary screenplay "The Inexplicable Events of Elliot Finley." I look forward to seeing this on the big screen; producers interested in making a family centered film are welcome to partner up and option!
The Strange and Inexplicable Events of Elliot Finley Adventure This tale offers a spellbinding family tale chock-full of magic, kidnappings, adventure, and a colorful cast of good and evil characters. At the same time, it explores universal problems like bullying and low self-esteem that children wrestle with in every day life. They are amply reflected in this enchanting and insightful tale which will enhance the lives of anyone who can vicariously identify with the issues surrounding Elliot's incapacities, and offer up an exciting journey that will free the spirit. A broken but talented young girl whose mother suddenly disappears, a powerful but gentle dragon, a mystical and magical drawing book, and a renegade shaman with wickedly evil intentions: such is the premise behind "Strange and Inexplicable Events of Elliot Finley." Barely noticeable in the school system, some believe Elliot Finley is simply inattentive, but Elliot's teacher recognizes otherwise, and encourages an artistic ability within by curiously presenting a drawing book that will magically transform her world. After her mother's shocking and sudden disappearance, Elliot no longer has time for emotional loneliness and obscurity.A renegade Shaman and a loving and protective dragon named Daisy draw Elliot and her sidekick Murray into an adventurous world of intrigue as the children slowly realize the identity of their magical and mysterious visitors. The Shaman, who often takes the shape of a crow, continuously daunts Elliot after her first visit to an ancient and magical rainforest. It seems the Shaman is out to get Elliot because he knows she has discovered his secretly hidden underworld, and possesses the very item he needs to conquer hers. But, he has an even more sinister reason for going after her. Not only must he must secure his realms safety by ridding the modern world of any credible witness, he has a dire need to gather something Elliot possesses; something that keeps his existence alive altogether. I hope this gives you a little insight to the script, and that you find it as intriguing a story for the young and old alike.Thank you for requesting more information! Aloha!Pamela
