Synopsis/Details: 

There is rumor of a town in the Northeast that on a dark stormy night, ten years ago, witnessed what can only be described as a supernatural miracle. But no one outside of the town knows the true story.

So, Ben Jacobs, a cynical and emotionally distraught reporter goes to investigate the truth, with a secretive agenda of his own.

What he finds, are friends and family that are eager to impart their story and the mysterious truth that changed their town and its people forevermore.

But despite their impassioned and fantastical tale, the question remains as to whether Ben believes. And to do so, he'll be forced to reluctantly accept his profound role in a story that's very much only just begun.

2018 Bluecat Screenplay contest, reader feedback (highlights)

“Overall, “An Angel Whispers” is an uplifting story driven by mystery. Hidden details are carefully revealed as Ben meets each new character. Ben’s character arc is also well developed. At the beginning, he is skeptical of the whispering angel story, however, when he sees the photo and realizes Jimmy is Padre, he starts to become a believer, and seems to transform into the faithful writer the churchgoers need to tell their story. This arc adds depth and meaning to the story, creating a complex and round protagonist.”

The Writer: J.B. Storey

I originally hail from the UK, but now reside in Seattle, WA. Over the years I've written award-winning feature length & short screenplays. As well as award-winning stage plays (Last Cup of Sorrow, Wolves at the Door). I've had four pieces of my work produced for screen and stage: An Angel Whispers (short film), Adrifting (short film), Good Deeds (short film), and Last Cup of Sorrow (stage play). These days I write, because it's a creative outlet, and I enjoy the process. I like telling stories. Exploring new worlds. Letting my imagination run wild. For me it really is about the journey.
