Serious question:

How do YOU find someone who is struggling to find herself?


C.C. Sant-Clair’s genre is GLBT, but we were struck by how vividly she portrayed human emotion and need in her screenplay Far From Maddy. We felt that her story speaks to a larger audience.

Imagine a park: lovely old trees. Birds chirping away in the branches. Gently sloping lawn. Dappled shade.

A lone figure on a picnic blanket, book in hand, tuned into private thoughts.

It is you. You are in the park. You are reading, but more importantly, you are elsewhere in your head.

The book you are reading is Far From Maddy.

Far From Maddy is SO compelling!

I’ve not been able to get it out of my mind for days – Scarlet
