Development Pitch

My story beings with a prologue where I am being injected. I go onto describe how I felt under surveillance by intelligence agencies. I felt my home was bugged. I felt I was trapped in the astral field. I felt I was trapped in the astral field by ASIS having astral sex with me. I wanted justice. Was I going mad? I was diagnosed with schizophrenia in 2012 at the age of 36, and then with schizoaffective disorder in 2017. I wrote a memoir about my life and my experiences with schizophrenia called Virtual Insanity. In my memoir I describe my life journey and descent into mental illness along with all I lost, namely my two children. I lost custody of them in 2014 and they were moved by the court to live with their dad and stepmother in the USA and I haven’t seen them since. My memoir is set in countries across the globe and I describe my journey and relationships that I have had and the thoughts I had that I was under surveillance by intelligence agencies and political leaders along with being terrorised by militaries and a drug cartel. It also includes what I believed to be Australia’s silent war on the United Kingdom to become a Republic. Throughout my book I describe my delusions, voices and paranoia along with my visual and auditory hallucinations. But mainly, I describe secret truths.
