DR. MEL'S MESSAGE - From my novels to my other projects, no telling what you will read. This is the only place you will get to read about how I developed a screenplay into a novel and what is the driving force. I will talk about many things from films to books to acting to producing. It really will depend on where my mind takes me. I hope you will join me on this journey.
A young woman has her wisdom teeth removed and ends up in jail. She’s committed to a state hospital, railroaded by a prosecutor with false evidence who painted her as a monster. When her mother witnesses corruption firsthand, she sets out to uncover the truth through legal research that will free her daughter trapped between the cross-hairs of two powerful entities -- the Justice System and the mental health system. Her failure will result in a certain prosecutor and public offender continue their reign of terror on her daughter and other families. Success would mean bringing the lies used to condemn her daughter to the public, clearing her daughter’s name, and perhaps changing the justice system forever.
This "mini-textbook" is a true story that will empower LAYPEOPLE (non-attorney) like this mother, to advocate for themselves, their families, their community, and thousands of innocent women and men who were wrongfully convicted and wrongfully committed to receiving the justice they deserve.
