About Daphne

By day I am a radical social justice reading advocate for teens. By night I am a screenplay writing junkie who is desperately driven to combine my two passions into one 90 minute visual extravaganza in order to prove books save lives.

Unique traits: Determined, bordering obsessive, about issues I feel need to be addressed using digital media as the method of delivery. If Chihuahua sales went up with the release of Legally Blonde and more people hiked the Pacific Coast Trail because of Wild then I think it's a fair estimation to assume book sales for teens will sky rocket because of The Book of Abel.


  • The Book of Abel

    The Book of Abel Budget: $1M - $5M | Drama An unconventional teacher with a controversial classroom library must choose between helping her not-so-promising student and risking her career when she gives the boy a banned book.
