I am looking for an agent to represent my work in both the television and film venues. Although my primary genre is fantasy, I intertwine romance, suspense, and humor to create well rounded and multi-dimensional projects. My characters are well developed and flawed enough to be unique, yet realistic. Currently I have two screenplays available. In addition, I have written script for Days of Our Lives, treatment for a prime time TV show and three novels with a fourth on the way.

As the controlling President of the college, Judy Olson, shows her around, Elizabeth begins to realize that she has made a mistake and begins looking for excuses to leave.

When love leads to vengeance, it is best to say good-bye.

Seeking power, she searches the world for the Eye of Ra; when she finds it, it is Rikki not her that the Guardian chooses.

Days of Our Lives
I had been a fan of Days of Our Lives for three decades: when the writing became unbearable, I started writing alternative storylines for the show and posting them on the NBC boards. What started as a protest, turned into a long term project as fans told me that they liked what they were reading better than what they were seeing on the screen. Not only was I able to remain true to the characters and the show’s history, but I also ended each posting with a cliffhanger.
The link to the thread on the NBC board and later my blog has been shared with people around the world. Not only did they encourage me to keep the ghost story going until the end, but they also gave me the courage to apply for the head writing gig. I was able to find the unlisted phone numbers to on executive producers home and the private office number to the other. Unfortunately, I used an outdated format so they didn’t take me seriously. In addition to the ghost story, I wrote to other partial storylines to prove that I could write other plots besides than paranormal. All three storylines are listed on my site at www.theresachaze.com.
