The Good Woman

2008 hasn’t been kind to BETH JOHNSTON. Her suburban dream life is in the dumper but the optimistic, compulsively organized, pregnant PTA mom knows “everything will be fine.” Has to be, she promised.
Pessimistic, alcoholic IRS auditor PHIL REMMING’S life has always been in the dumper. Unfortunately for Beth and Phil, he’s her auditor. His $175,000.00 assessment certainly isn’t fine.
Everyone has a limit. Beth hits hers, kidnaps Phil, wins big at the track, fights off gang members, proves Phil wrong and learns everything doesn’t need to be fine. Christmas will be merry anyway.

Writer Statement

I love every element of working in the film industry. Producing is like doing a complicated puzzle, acting is a thrill and so much fun but writing is my passion. When I am creating a character, a story, the arc that's truly when I'm in my element.
