Lunacy

An Original Screenplay

Historical films

I have always been fascinated by the Moon Hoax of 1835, a true event that turns America on its head for several weeks. It was the perfect platform to explore the importance of belief.

Based on true events

In 1835 life was discovered on the moon. Mac is a grieving journalist ready to end it all, when the moon seems to mock him, reviving his investigative mind. He sets out to prove moon life is a hoax and learns something about belief in the process. For a copy, please inquire on the Contact page.

Burning Meadows

An Original Screenplay

World-building in Ireland

Weird, unexplained... fantasy so thick it's impossible to believe and deadly not to. I don't know where this story came from, but I love it. Fun characters, dark humor, and new ground. Everything thrilling fantasy is supposed to be.

Action, Fantasy, and a Gritty Story

Richard, a Detroit cop, returns his wife's remains to the small Irish town where she grew up. His son disappears from an open field and Richard is plunged into battle against forces he can't believe are real. Aided by a collection of eccentric townsfolk, Richard must fight to save his son and his world. For a copy, please inquire on the Contact page.

First Comes Love

An Original Screenplay

It Starts with a Single Scene

The image of a man at the front door with his little girl sadly in the doorway... it haunted me. I wanted to know who they were, so I wrote the screenplay to find out. You'll also see my love for support characters (in this and all my screenplays). They're always more fun than the leads. 

Family matters

Jake isn't an alcoholic, but he gave it the old college try. Trying to stay in his daughter's life, he's woken to the importance of family almost too late, and he'll do anything he can to preserve it.
