One-hour drama series
Time is an illusion and everything is happening all at once.
We're here, but our ancestors are here too -
they're just in another dimension.
Sometimes, we can see them.

Dabbler in quantum physics, time travel, and Einstein's concept that time is an illusion and everything is happening all at once.
The O'Malleys is loosely based on my South Boston Irish Catholic family, my adventures in genealogy and my visits to Ireland.
While digging around in old records, I accidentally found my great grandmother, Anna Moran, a young woman who died at age 28, leaving two babies behind.
Anna's brother took her children in, and raised them as his own.
No one in my family ever knew that Anna existed until I found her in the archives at Boston City Hall. I believe she wanted me to find her. She wanted to be known.
I thought of all those immigrant women, their names never written down, lost to their families, lost to history, women like Anna.
Anna became Grianne in The O'Malleys, her child raised by others, her name forgotten. Until her great granddaughter finds her.
American writer Kate Driscoll has three weeks to ace a P.R. assignment and save her career, but fears she's losing her sanity - and her sobriety - when she encounters a ghost in Ireland.
Still Under construction.
