Development Pitch

Coming from a place where casinos were built from the ground up, i saw the problems that can arise first-hand when someone in the family has a gambling problem. With so many casinos and places where people gamble across the world, I see this as something that can touch the lives in many households and maybe give people a sense of hope that they can overcome anything and also help those who have a gambling problem themselves.This film will definitely be a tearjerker due to the drama that the gambling causes within her family and the way she handles her cancer situation. When I wrote this, I pictured my mother being played by someone along the likes of Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer, or Lynn Whitfield. Someone who could really bring out the character in the story.

About The Author

Born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, I have always had a passion for writing, whether it was music or some kind of poetry. I was inspired to write this book by observing my mother deal with cancer and a gambling addiction at the same time.
