Development Pitch

Many of the events in Secrets are common real-life shattering experiences that many people face. Lies and deceit to cover up the truth about someone's life not realizing that what's done in the dark will eventually come to light, no matter how many years has passed. I would like to see this book turn into a powerful heart felt film. I want the audience to feel the emotions of the characters and to feel suspense. Sitting on their edge of their seat wanting to know what's going to happen next. I feel like this will touch the heart of a lot of individuals who always wanted that mother-daughter bond and also touch the heart of young females who are in love with a guy who gets someone else pregnant. The lies and secrets just keeps unraveling. Learning the meaning behind your name makes you hate yourself. While going through the absolute worse and receiving a blessing, how do you balance out pain and excitement? When you feel like enough is enough. No more crying and those tears turn into anger.
