My current work in progress – All the Lonely People

Updated July 25, 2019

Abigail Donovan and Shep Montague are unlikely best friends. Shep, a mentally handicapped 20-something who spends his days wandering the Garden Park playground collecting bottle caps. Abby, a 6th grader at Our Lady of Victory School where her father works as the janitor, a motherless child obsessed with keeping those she loves safe from harm.

This is the story of the lonely people, the hidden ones behind the closed doors of the neat suburban housing developments. The sorrowful, the elderly, the sick, the infirm. The ones everyone forgets. This is their story and the triumph of love over hate.

What happens when one person remember them is a story you’ll never forget.
