Here I’d like to show you some of the projects, I’m currently working on. Since my brain never shuts down, there’s a lot more ideas floating around. So, this is really just a short snippet of the current projects for 2017.
Far beyond Reality
Goal 2017: Final revision, send to the Book Doctors
Pitch: Hannah lives a perfectly normal life: She gets good marks, just won a prize for her writing and is now offered the leadership over the school musical.

Reality can’t compare, until she meets Finn, the charming best friend of her secret crush. Currently bound to a wheel chair, Finn is everything but excited for spending his afternoons in a stuffy school room with Hannah. He’d rather spend his time on the soccer field, but there is something that he has to learn from Hannah – and something he has to teach her.
