Logline

ON THE VERGE is a story basic on actual events in the author's life. Even though it's fiction, the underlying story draws from the life and events of the author. A life unhinged. Dreams shattered with no answers to how to fix them. Jackson is sitting in a hospital treatment room. His life is hopeless memories and whispers full of shadows, until death comes to visit. This story is based on some truth about personality disorders, suicide and dysfunctional demons. Ben, Carl, Denny, Darrell, Johnny, and Randy, the “others,” share the same body, but each has a different life. Things are out of control. Dr. Alfred Fine “Jake” tries to help Jackson come to terms with his friends. A traumatic climax ensues with the introduction of Januari Winters. There seems to be nowhere to turn, but the answer comes very unexpectedly
