EVERYLIFE conceptualizes the social discussion of what it means for us to talk and engage one another face-to-face, which often seems lost in a distracted, cellphone, Internet, streaming world, while also making room to widen our circle of friends to include ‘all’ people, even those who are different from us.
Logline: An aspiring writer, aided by a charismatic theater professor, breaks away from the nonstop, televised show that controls every aspect of society, in order to discover there’s more to life and love beyond the scripted show.
A Year of Short Stories
Imagine a short story every month that takes you on a new adventure. Now imagine getting to discuss the reading, with the author, in an exclusive online community. Imagine also that by reading the story, you're supporting an independent artist.
When you join my Warriors Wanted community, and subscribe, you do more than support my work: you're choosing to patron an artist who has spent time mastering the craft. It's the equivalent of buying one of my finished paintings in an open market, still drying. There are stories for every kind of reader.
Join me and discover new worlds!
