After a TV contest, a straight female impersonator succeeds as a high fashion model.

James Dalessandro: This is a brave attempt at a highly original story, and last and most importantly – a wonderful script. It is edgy, well structured a wonderful piece with great characters, set in an interesting environment. JD.
James Dalessandro is the Co-founder of the Santa Cruz festival, where for four years he also served as its director. He is the writer of the House of Blues radio hour which hosted by Dan Aykroyd (as Elwood Blues) during the period in which it won the Platinum Award from the National Broadcasters Association. He is also the writer/creator of Rock On with The Doors keyboardist Ray Manzarek.
Geno Scala: Screenwriter, Script mentor. I love it. The hook to me is a female impersonator becoming a high-fashioned model. That’s cool- “Tootsie” meets America’s top Model.

Aburna vs. Nunnery

After The Malediction Legacy, I had planned to continue with the Nunnery, an idea that started as a short story, but it became a two-volume novel. The story dramatizes the life of a wealthy young woman who fell in love with the wrong man, and abandoned by her family fell into prostitution and control substance; but as she reached to the house of God, discovered that she is destined to attract evil. A Gothic tale set in France. However, I decided to proceed with a 400 year Goth, Satanic tale with historical events I have titled Aburna.
