Genre:

Age Rating:

Logline: 
A boy, and a beautiful girl who moves in next door, receive supernatural help from a resident of a senior citizens' home as they fend off bullies, dealers and rednecks in their tough neighborhood.
Synopsis/Details: 

The first of a series of (so far) five fun, heart-warming, campfire-creepy, coming-of-age stories starring mixed-race youths set amidst monsters, magic and mayhem: As if poverty in a tough neighborhood isn’t enough!

Set somewhere between "Harry Potter" and “Let Me In/Let the Right One In”, this series is suitable for the tweens and up crowd and could generate gigabytes of social media.

But note, the stories are NOT appropriate for VERY young kids. For example, when the little old witch does her witchy thing on the bad guys, it could scare children away from their grandmother! As well, some serious issues are exposed, obliquely or head-on throughout the stories, just like in real life: Bullying, bigots, dealers, etc.

The "Beecroft" series (so far): (Also available as one-hour Pilot + Nine Episodes + Full Bible)

The Hag of Beecroft (103pp)
The Vampyre of Beecroft (105pp)
The Rougarou of Beecroft (104pp)

The Writer: Steve Garry

I wrote my first screenplay in 2008, at the age of 52. It was a surprise, yet predicable too, for composition was my favorite subject in my earliest years of elementary school. But somewhere between the ages of 10 and 52, I must have felt that writing wasn't a serious or possibly an attainable career. My writing methodology is unique because I use many of the same skills I used for decades as a software programmer. The stories must be both "logical" and "bug free". Oh, and hopefully, thought-provoking, entertaining, suspenseful, or humorous, often in the same script, with captivating characters and story lines, especially given the complex themes I often take on in my work.
