Short Story of the Week.
When a lonely and logical girl is attacked by a creature in the Yorkshire countryside, she discovers a connection has formed between them that follows her throughout her life. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Growing up in Lancashire in the north of England, Beatty was raised with centuries-old folktales of fairies and boggarts who would wreak havoc if you took a simple misstep on a cobbled lane. Every patch of land had a ghost story or mysterious legend to go with it, which is what first sparked her interest in the horror, supernatural, and fantasy genres. After moving to the US, she wrote and directed several short films, including the tense drama film NIGHT SNIFFERS, the cabin-in-the-woods thriller SNARE, and the strange supernatural thriller DRIFT. She also produced the short comedy thriller ! and the short animated drama LUNCHBOX. She has written several pilot scripts and short stories, often grounded in periods of history, regional folktales, or obscure legends. Beatty has a BA degree from University of Notre Dame and an MFA from the Peter Stark Producing Program at USC.
Because stories move us.
