About

It's time for another major film project that features gay people in the story line. Brokeback Mountain proves beyond a doubt that the right story will not only make money for the people in the movie business, but it can change peoples lives in the way they think about gay people. 

"Condor One," is the first in a five book series depicting the lives of the first openly gay President of the United States, and the Secret Service Agent that he falls in love with during the campaign. The first book take the public through the end of the campaign, and the high tension and action that takes place beginning on day one of the life of the Windsor presidency. 

Condor One is not only an action thriller, but a love story as well. How does a gay man who is the most powerful and public man in the world, conduct a relationship with another man who is not known to be gay and keep the details initially from the public.Is there even a chance that such a romance could work out? Condor one answers this question and many more besides. Enter a world where who the man is who is President is more important than who he sleeps with in spite of the near hysteria of some. Will President Windsor and the Secret Service be able to thwart the plots and conspiracies launched against this President? Will he survive? 

The first step in bringing this best selling story to the screen is to turn the book into a screenplay by a very experienced screenplay writer which is very different than authoring the story in the first place. Screenplay writers are very expensive because the work is so demanding. If we reach goal, we will proceed with the next step in bringing this project to Hollywood or HBO or Showtime or some other station that is bold and innovative.
