Development Pitch

How would you live your life if you knew it wasn’t your only one? Would you do anything differently if you knew you would have to do it all again? I’m not sure how many lives I have lived; I only know this is not my first. Or second. My name is Sarah Daley, and I’m 19 years old . . . again. Sarah Daley leads a charmed life, but rather than luck, it’s repetition. Sarah lives, dies, then lives again, born as another Sarah, in another part of the world. What most would see as immortality, she sees as a curse. Life on Repeat is the story of her search for a life in the here and now. Sarah retains skills and knowledge from each life which she finds out spontaneously during attacks, caring for medical emergencies, horseback riding, and knitting. Her life is turned upside down in the 80s when she falls in love for what she thinks is the first time not knowing she would die, come back and marry that love in her next life. While they honeymoon in Greece, Sarah and Luke find out that he was not her first love and that an 85-year-old man (her son), holds the key to another past she has no recollection of, except for remembering him. Minneapolis, The Cure, Say Anything (John Cusack), 80s fashion all play a crucial role in connecting bringing Sarah back to life from mere existence.

About The Author

Amy Larson Marble is a mom of four kids, a lawyer, and whose husband travels for work, so home-cooked meals or neatly made beds are a rarity. The family dogs Boomer, Finn, and Max (a.k.a. the pack) complete the chaos that is the daily routine. Amy was born in Colorado, grew up in North Dakota, and lives in Minnesota. Years ago, Amy woke up after a dream of a girl who lived over and over again. That dream became the start of another dream, to write the story of Sarah and share it with others.
