Get to know the writer:

What is your TV Pilot screenplay about?

A woman’s surprising revelation about her past and her fight to save herself and humanity from a satanic Second Coming.

Why should this screenplay be made into a TV show?

The screenplay has long story lines and it can take you into Madeleine’s life after the revelation, into webs of future occurrences when Madeleine bears her own child, the rise of another Second Coming and the battles for the soul of earth with biblical implications.

How would you describe this script in two words?

Horror-Romance

What TV show do you keep watching over and over again?

Star Trek originals from 1960’s.

How long have you been working on this screenplay?

I worked on the screenplay for approximately one year.

How many stories have you written?

I have written four features and four shorts. The first script was titled The Outcasts which received a quarter-finalist status with the We Screenplay Intl’ Competition. The second script was titled Dangerous Triangle, which was a finalist in the Massiff (Massachusetts Int’ Film Festival), a 4th place finish in the Indie Gathering Festival, and a finalist in the Neo Noir Film Festival. In the shorts category, a screenplay titled The Secret was a finalist in the 2016 Artists Alliance Short Screenplay Comp., and a screenplay titled Love in a Dungeon, received a finalist award in the Courier Award 2015.

What motivated you to write this screenplay?

As a teenager, I was always fascinated with movies like the Wolfman with Lon Chaney, vampire movies with Bela Lugosi, Frankenstein movies, Star Trek and all other forms of thriller and sci-fi adventures.

What obstacles did you face to finish this screenplay?

I have come to face obstacles with all my scripts I have written. The obstacles are the re-writes which constantly change the direction of the scripts.

Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

My other passions are few. Watching the politics on television has hijacked my life and has consumed my everyday life, as I am very passionate about the direction that this country will travel.

What influenced you to enter the festival? What were your feelings on the initial feedback you received?

The initial feedback opened my eyes as to how my writing skills needed major improvement. Being long-winded, the reviewer showed me the proper way to shorten my action descriptions into a more compact way, which I am able to use in my future writings.

The reason for entering the festival was to receive feedback to improve my writing skills.

Any advice or tips you’d like to pass on to other writers?

My advice: Never stop re-writing. It is a love of mine, not a chore.
