Synopsis/Details: 

Wishbone

A world famous self-help writer -- broken and dejected from a loss he cannot overcome -- is visited by an enigmatic neighbor who feels she owes him a debt of gratitude for helping her, and many others overcome their battles with grief, inspired by his writings.

Humbled, yet overwhelmed by her story, Nick looks to the past for comfort, wishing that he could go back, even for just a moment, to change the events of a day that led to his seemingly everlasting torment.

But what if that wish came true? How would it change the course of his life, and more importantly, the lives of the ones he helped, albeit through his own terrible grief?

The Writer: J.B. Storey

Once upon a time I dreamed about becoming a 'working writer'. But, life had other plans. Good, enduring plans. So, nowadays I work on being a writer, in my ' spare time '. And every once-in-awhile I get lucky and win an accolade or two. I've also even been blessed with seeing some of my work come to life on screen and stage. But no matter the outcome, I continue to write. As I love the process. It's a constant state of learning and growing. There is nothing comparable to conjuring and crafting a narrative out of the vastness of the imagination. It is a wonderful creative and cathartic outlet that I hope will be a part of who I am, for as long as I am. Go to bio
