Development Pitch

Lethal Campaign is a story about political control, corruption, sex and murder. It is a suspenseful thrilling ride that keeps you guessing, somewhat like a Agatha Christie mystery. We connect to the main character, a strong and determined woman, ready to do whatever it takes to find the murderer. Along her journey we learn about her drive and family bond that gives her the strength and courage to do what she needs to do. This story s a triangle of people with a determined villain, a person who has lost their way and become connected to this villain and a protector on a ride that takes her in so many directions. Lethal Campaign uses the political arena, in a small town, that we see so much of today in our country. Viewers can relate to the corruption and what it can do to people, especially if it means money, power and control. These drives will make this type of person do whatever is necessary...even murder. Both men and women of any adult age can relate to the story and characters and find their hero in one woman, our main character. It is fresh, exciting and keeps you on our toes because of the exciting twists in story and characters. Our female protagonist/hero is one we can idolize and support and today we are seeing more women in these roles, as we should. Lethal Campaign will entertain, inspire and leave you feeling pumped and happy.

About The Author

I was born and raised in New York City's Hell's Kitchen. I was the youngest of four boys and we were poor. Television was our only source of entertainment and I would watch whatever show was on and all the old films. I became so immersed in the stories and from that and being extremely shy I decided I wanted to write stories. This is when it all began.
