Aided by a mentor's legacy and while establishing himself as the world’s foremost relationship coach, Michael Elliott discovers he is in love with his "soul mate" (spiritual love) and "special mate" (physical love) at the same time and must choose between them to fulfill his destiny.



Short Summary

Michael Elliott, a relationship coach based in Chicago, is stirred up out of deep sleep by an unusual dream - a beautiful woman leads him to the Pacific Ocean and whispers that the ocean will help him discover his destiny. When Michael is invited to Lima, he wonders if he will find his destiny here.

A mentor's legacy, the sacrifice of Dorothy, and the support of Meher combine to make Michael the preeminent relationship coach. He now longs to return to Dorothy, but he has come to love Meher as well. Dorothy convinces him to choose physical love (Meher) over spiritual love (Dorothy).


Exotic locations - Lima (Peru), Chicago, and India enhance the story and provide compelling visuals. Perhaps, no book or movie has woven a story around Peru, the US, and India (three divergent worlds).

Development Pitch

Spanning the exotic locations and compelling visuals of Lima (Peru), Chicago, and India this is an unusual story of a priceless philosophy for success and happiness imparted by a mentor that is backed by the sacrifice of a soul mate (Dorothy) from Chicago and the support of a special mate (Meher) from India that combine to make Michael Elliott, the protagonist a preeminent relationship coach for young people. Once he reaches the pinnacle, he is confronted with the most difficult choice he has ever made; in the pursuit of excellence, does sacrifice (soul mate - Dorothy) matter more than support (special mate - Meher); or without support, does no sacrifice count? Can Michael resolve this life-changing dilemma, discover his true destiny, and finally become THE SUITABLE INHERITOR?
