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

My writing career started when I was no more than nine or ten years old. However, it took the form of imaginary adventures my many toys would embark upon. As I got older, I started to write essays at school. I excelled at the ones where I could freely mold my ideas into fiction. Not as good when it came to scrutinizing existing star-crossed literature written five hundred years ago. So, what did I do with all of that imagination? I studied history and philosophy. Why? For the most part, because I was a kid who still harbored ambitions of being Batman. In other words, I had no idea who I wanted to be professionally. Yet, I was drawn to history, for that is the root of all storytelling... Go to bio
