Finally having proof of magic’s existence, Michelle helps Lira evade any unwanted attention, hoping to find answers once and for all.

Get to know the writer:

What is your TV Pilot screenplay about?

It’s about friendship, loyalty, family, greed, and the quest for truth and goodness. Set against the backdrop of ancient gods and their eternal cosmic battle, worlds will collide, gods will clash, heroes will fall, and all before lunch period. When we first meet our leading ladies, Lira is a powerful being from a realm of magic, mystery, and adventure, and Michelle is a seemingly ordinary girl stuck in an ordinary world, whose biggest concern is getting through high school in one piece. A chance encounter will change their lives forever and lead them down a path that neither one could have predicted.

Why should this screenplay be made into a TV show?

It should be made into a TV show, because it’s fun, adventurous, and would be very visually and emotionally appealing to the YA audience it’s geared for. This demographic is constantly looking for something new and fresh, and this show has a combination of unique elements similar to other successful shows like Roswell and Once Upon a Time, but on a slightly darker, more mature level, which I feel would apply to the current zeitgeist given the popularity of TV content like The Vampire Diaries, The 100, and Pretty Little Liars.

How would you describe this script in two words?

Emotional and thrilling

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

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

How long have you been working on this screenplay?

Two years.

How many stories have you written?

Too many to count. I’ve been writing stories since I learned how to put pen to paper.

What motivated you to write this screenplay?

I had a dream about my main characters and that’s where the story evolved from. I felt that the visuals my unconscious brain had imagined needed to be realized into words.

What obstacles did you face to finish this screenplay?

It was difficult to find people who were willing to read my script, who knew enough about script writing and storytelling to give me good feedback.

Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

Dancing and musical theatre. My secret wish is to write a musical one day.

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

I felt this was a pretty great story and a solid pilot, and I wanted to see if anyone else agreed. I also liked the idea of getting feedback regardless of whether your script is picked. I had nothing to lose by entering.

The Initial feedback was great. I think it helped tighten my script in some places and made me think of different ways to bring out exposition.

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

If it’s your dream, you have to go for it.
