To supplement the household cash flow, for a while, Carol Frome wrote content articles--until out of the blue one day, enlightenment struck. She looked at her husband and said, I am not writing anymore crap. That's when she started writing screenplays.

She's also been a private tutor, a real estate broker, a Tupperware lady, and a farm wife. She taught college writing courses at Purdue University, SUNY-Plattsburgh, and at Clinton Correctional Facility, a maximum security prison in Dannemora NY.  

She currently has four screenplays to offer: 

Paper Cuts is a romantic comedy. When Cupid makes a mess that his wife Psyche must clean up, she tells him to clean it up himself By midnight, Valentine's Day. Or become a snake,  He's too busy, so he contracts two newly passionate lovers to do the job by the same day and time or be separated from each other forever. The end suggests sequels are possible.

A thriller, Chica, with a strong female Latina lead who turns the tables on the victimizer, her white, serial killer father. The story also has a subtle theme concerning marginalized people in America.

Knot Theory, a drama about a young man who, in a fit of anger, accidentally killed his mother when he was a young teenager. Deeply ashamed and reclusive, he nsists he is happy working at Zelly's Deli--until more tragedy forces him to rethink his goal. The story has an uplifting ending. Good dialogue. Great roles for actors. Along the vein of Good Will Hunting.

Neely Saves the Gnomes has a strong female lead with a pesky one-armed little brother. A tumbling family film about 12-year-old Neely who with her brother is captured by friendly gnomes; they need Neely to gather her courage to save them from the menace: frustrated, bumbling, stomping Dozer, the last full-blooded living troll. Suitable for animation or live acting with animation. The end points toward a sequel.
