I’m getting back in the game.
I had fun playing around with weaving fibers and fables and selling custom story snippets in my Etsy Shop www.etsy.com/shop/TheWeaverOfWords and now I’m getting back to screenwriting.
I started off at UCLA Extension in the Writer’s Program. I had some success with my screenwriting including winning some awards. I almost sold one of my original TV pilots to a British Producer before the financing fell through. ABC considered hiring me as a writer and I had industry interest in my feature specs.
Recently I updated my features and pilot and I’m currently writing a new feature.
New Project – “The Portrait“
My current project “The Portrait” is a feature – drama.
The first draft of my feature “The Portrait” is done. I’m currently working on edits.
Here’s a sneak peek of this screenplay:
Selene, a brilliant painter who is also psychic, has always avoided exploring past life issues, focusing on her work on modern day acrylic portraits.
When a British antique art dealer commissions Selene to paint his portrait in oil at his 16th century English country manor, Selene can no longer hide from the past.
At every turn Selene glimpses her past life during the Renaissance as she creates her art; the drama, the trauma, a romance and a mystery in her past life that will endanger own life and the people that she has grown to love.
Completed Features/TV Pilot:
Here’s a list of some my projects (see above menu for links to the summaries):
“Guilty” – feature, drama
“The Eternal Flame” – feature, period piece set in 16th Century Italy, drama
“Formosa Place” – TV Pilot – one hour, drama/comedy

My blog www.averyfairytale.wordpress.com/ contains samples of the types of “story snippets” that I sold through my Etsy shop – customers gave me 15 words and I wrote “story snippets” using their words.
