Valentino in the finals

I am thrilled that Valentino is now in the Top 10 Finalists in the Family category in the StoryPro Contest.  It’s been ten years of very hard work to get this far and I am still learning. A big dream. http://www.storypros.com/8thAwardsFinalists.html


Valentino making waves

Valentino:  CURRENT SEMI/QUARTER-FINALIST IN STORYPRO 2015 SCREENWRITING COMPETITION – FAMILY CATEGORY – top 15 as of today. Two worlds collide when a Native boy and a blind girl are thrust into extreme circumstances after being shipwrecked on opposite sides of a desolate island in the middle of winter. While Maddie McNabb must rely on providence, her guide dog and an abandoned horse to help her survive, August Pete has a wealth of cultural heritage and survival skills to draw from.

Determination, perseverance, hope and friendship are the cornerstones of this story.
