Get to know the writer:
What is your screenplay about?
This screenplay is a post-apocalyptic romantic-adventure that tells the story of survivors in a harsh world overrun by zombies. The events chronicle the characters’ efforts to realize the safety of North Carolina’s barrier islands, the Outer Banks. Along the way they meet friends and enemies who change their lives and the human race as they knew it. With one syringe, everything changes.
What genres does your screenplay fall under?
Action, Horror, Comedy, Drama, and Romance
Why should this screenplay be made into a movie?
The action, storyline, and character development would be best portrayed on the silver screen. Public thirst for all things zombie are at an all-time high. This is the opportune moment to share a fantastic bit of zombie fiction, that shares the theme we all know and love, with a twist we haven’t seen.
How would you describe this script in two words?
What movie have you seen the most times in your life?
If I’m being honest, as a mom of 2, probably “Frozen”, but my all-time favorite movie is “Tombstone”
How long have you been working on this screenplay?
How many stories have you written?
What is your favorite song? (Or, what song have you listened to the most times in your life?)
Here Without You Baby, Three Doors Down
What obstacles did you face to finish this screenplay?
I want the characters to really have substance to them. I want the reader and viewer to know exactly what each person stands for and their feelings. This is hard to convey in a compressed format with lives already in progress. There were many edits and debates over which characters to keep, to remove, to elevate and minimize while keeping the story intact.
Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?
I love my children and my family. Helping shelter pets is a passion of mine and I love volunteering.
