most notorious serial killers of our time
****


MY FRIEND DAHMER



My Friend Dahmer is based on the acclaimed graphic novel about one of the most notorious serial killers ever. Its screenplay landed a spot on the coveted 'Black List', ranking it as one of the best un-produced screenplays (at the time) before becoming a hit movie.


My Friend Dahmer had a theatrical release in 2017 and has grossed over $1,300,000. It played extensively on the festival circuit, premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival and going on to play at LA Film Festival, Deauville Film Festival, American Film Festival, and many others. The film features an all-star cast that includes Emmy Nominee Anne Heche (Donnie Brasco), SAG Award winner Vincent Kartheiser (Mad Men), Former Disney star Ross Lynch (Austin & Ally), Alex Wolff (Patriot's Day) and Dallas Roberts (3:10 To Yuma).


Jeffrey Dahmer murdered 17 men and boys in the Midwest United States between 1978 and 1991 before being captured and incarcerated. He would become one of America's most infamous serial killers. This is the story before that story.


SYNOPSIS:


Jeff Dahmer (Lynch) is an awkward teenager struggling to make it through high school with a family life in ruins. He collects roadkill, fixates on a neighborhood jogger (Kartheiser), and copes with his unstable mother (Heche) and well intentioned father (Roberts). He begins to act out at school, and his goofball antics win over a group of band-nerds who form The Dahmer Fan Club, headed by Derf Backderf (Wolff). But this camaraderie can't mask his growing depravity. Approaching graduation, Jeff spirals further out of control, inching ever closer to madness.

FLO ANTHONY'S SEQUEL 'ONE LAST DEADLY PLAY'

****
BOOKS

"Be sure to keep the lights on for this thriller!"
****


One Last Deadly Play



New York, NY - Celebrity Journalist/Bestselling Author Flo Anthony returns with One Last Deadly Play, which was recently released digitally on Tuesday, June 7, 2016. The novel marks the highly anticipated sequel to her 2013 release “Deadly Stuff Players”.


Almost two years ago, along with law enforcement officers, the nation's most popular Black Gossip Columnist, Valerie Rollins and her crime solving partner, Rome Nyland, an NFL Hall of Famer turned Private Investigator, discovered that retired Los Angeles Wildcats baseball player Royale Jones' real identity is Rolondo Jemison, his look-a-like cousin. A career criminal, Rolondo, had been presumed dead. 


The question was, "What happened to the real Royale?," whom Valerie never revealed to anyone that she had an intimate past with. On this particular Tuesday morning, a mysterious man who has been living on a deserted island in the Bahamas with amnesia for the past five years, suddenly gets his memory back when he sees a photo of Rolondo in a newspaper article that also mentions Valerie's name. 


At the same time in Los Angeles, Rolondo shoots his way out of an L.A. courtroom and flees to New York City where Valerie is helping her fiance, Black dot com billionaire Victor Dumas and his son, Vance, a jockey, put together an all Black Polo Club that will compete this summer in the Hamptons Polo Classic. Once Val and crew land in the Big Apple, they find out their Los Angeles home has been invaded, members of their staff have been killed and Rome's fiancee Turquoise Hobson, is missing. 


Vance's wife, Kentucky Derby winning jockey Violet McClean has left him, and secretly joined forces against the Dumas family with Rolondo and Victor's worst enemy, his half--brother Sincere, to kidnap she and Vance's daughter for billions in ransom and eventually kill Victor and Valerie. The dastardly trio is also after a trunk filled with gold, silver and bills hidden in an underground safe in a secret room beneath the Holy Tabernacle of Mary Magdelene Church in the Hamptons' historically black neighborhood that is in Sag Harbor. The church was once the last stop on the Underground Railroad. 


Follow this eclectic cast of characters along with supermodels, socialites, a treacherous minister, the Bugatti Blades and an Olympic Figure Skater as they navigate the streets of New York City and the glittering Hamptons, all the while making new love connections as well as renewing past ones, dodging bullets and death, but most importantly, Valerie and Rome are once again trying to keep the bad guys from making One Last Deadly Play.
