Breaking your heart in all the right ways...
Follow along with me as I show you what 60k in student loan debt from film school has taught me...
Hopeless and Romantic
I write. I write a lot. A. LOT. And I need somewhere for my work to go instead of collecting dust on my flash drive. Hence, this site; waiting to be discovered by those that love writing as much as I do, or just appreciate a good love story. I want to share worlds and characters I've created over the years (and currently) with other people, and hope they find a little joy in my scribbling.
Most of the work on this site will be of screenplays and teleplays I've written and those I'm aiming to get to. I do write prose, but mostly as fanfic under a pseudonym. ;)
Also, my wheelhouse is strong female leads, interracial/multicultural couples, and members of the LGBTQIA community. Therefore, the majority of the projects on this site are romantic dramas or comedies featuring them as complex, 3-dimensional protagonists, because all stories need to be told, especially those that are underrepresented.
And finally, this shit gets real NSFW sometimes, so if you're hoping for me to keep it PG and light, I'm sorry, but we don't do that over here. You've been warned.

Entered my Look-Book & TV Bible for COLORBLIND into the New Media Film Festival contest!
(latest to oldest)
Mumblecore dramedy about the unexpected romance that blossoms between a janitor and the young rich boy that pursues him.
NOTE: This is NOT an outline/treatment!
No dialogue is written due to the propensity for hyper-realistic conversation between characters within the subgenre.
BLOOD & HONEY
(TV series pitch)
A team of former Navy SEALS have spent the last 10 years transforming their devastated hometown in rural Pennsylvania into an idyllic small town with mob-style rule, but the hillbilly drug peddlers, former sheriff, and a cult leader miss how things used to be, and aim to revert the town back to it's old ways.
(one-hour dark fantasy drama)
Olenna and Rhea are estranged sisters ruling their separate lands as fierce queens after a deadly falling out when they were young women. They've maintained a mutual understanding of distance and apathy since, but when Olenna's daughter, Lyra, is kidnapped, and all signs point to Rhea as the culprit, their passive peace will be disrupted by a quest for revenge.
ALL HALLOWS' EVE
(one-hour horror/drama anthology series)
This TALES FROM THE CRYPT/ELVIRA'S MOVIE MACABRE-inspired series is an anthology show wherein a fictional horror author reads scary tales from her new book to an enthralled audience while also engaged in her own frightening story as she grows increasingly attracted to a werewolf.
All the stuff I'm currently working on that's got me excited, but is also driving me &#%!@?! crazy.

Biggest IRRATIONAL fear:
Forcefully being admitted into an insane asylum only to find out I *actually* belong there...
(which makes no sense because crazy people don't know they're crazy)
Biggest RATIONAL fear:
Stroke, paralysis, losing a limb, jail
(I am too cute and too sheltered for such a hard knock life)
