Development Pitch

Winter's Captive is a unique story that takes Georgia from one extreme to another with challenging obstacles. She's an ordinary person put into unimaginable circumstances. Her weaknesses are as apparent as her strengths. She could be any one of us and she takes us on a journey of non-stop action. The common thread from readers: "Once I started reading this story, I couldn't put it down". An adaptation to film could be done economically as most of the movie takes place in and around the cabin. The other locations could be adapted to a set.
