New Zealand Love Story

New Zealand Love Story is a full length Romantic Comedy screenplay written on final draft. It is inspired by one of my favourite films, Roman Holiday. It tells the story of two children who meet skiing in Queenstown New Zealand when they are 10 and 12. Elizabeth is from a wealthy New York family and Mac from an Otago sheep farming family.

They meet again 20 years later when Elizabeth has an accident skiing in Queenstown but she has slight amnesia. They spend a few days together and fall in love not knowing they met as children. Her identity is discovered and has to return back to New York to get married to a world famous actor.

The book captures the true essence of New Zealand, the lure of nature, the spirit of adventure and true love against all odds.

My inspiration comes from being brought up in the New Zealand Southern Alps which is truly some of the most beautiful scenery and people found anywhere in the world.
