THE WITCH by ROBERT EGGERS
ALTERNATIVE ENDING by MARY FARMER

In 1630s New England, after a dispute with the church of his village, a devout Puritan father packs up his family and leaves the relative safety of their colonial plantation to settle on a remote plot of land at the edge of a dark forest. Several months later, after their crops fail, their newborn son disappears and another child seemingly becomes possessed by an evil spirit, the family begins to unravel over fears they have been cursed.

I'm a Midwest-based (for now) writer who has written two fiction novels and is currently transitioning to screenwriting. I don't have a favorite genre, I'm still experimenting to find my niche but feel most connected to comedy, drama, thriller, and action/adventure stories. I also love period dramas and stories from a simpler time, and have lately been fascinated by mid to late 19th century fiction (especially works by lesser-known authors other than Austen, Twain, etc.) and period magazines. I'd love to have one of my scripts optioned/produced and/or be hired to write for film or television. I am currently pre-WGA and looking for representation.
