The Elvis Conspiracy

People talk about Elvis as if he were different people such as Young Elvis, Hollywood Elvis, and Vegas Elvis. What if it was actually true?
Intertwining facts and conspiracy theories, this “alternative history” thriller follows Col Tom Parker as he transforms from small time carnival barker to star maker when he creates the icon Elvis Presley thanks to multiple actors, plastic surgery, and lip syncing. Meanwhile a relentless investigative reporter tries to uncover the truth behind what might be the greatest swindle in entertainment history.

Writer Statement

I got into the entertainment industry as a performer and then evolved my interests into writing. I write in multiple genres including drama, comedy, sci-fi and action. I try to write characters that actors would want to play, and audiences would be fascinated to watch come alive. When I write screenplays – the first draft is the story I want to tell. Then, I adapt it into the story people would want to see. I am also a published author and journalist and apply the same general philosophy.
