Andrea M Clarke holds a firm belief in everyone’s right to be free and live happily and in peace within their (healthy) communities without fear of reprisals or discrimination. She left her Corporate Career in Marketing and Business Development to develop creative projects that inspire and bring people together through the arts.
Andrea has freedom in her DNA. Her ancestors served during the American Revolutionary War and were early settlers of the Colony of Rhode Island. Dr. John Clarke, her “uncle” was a founder of Newport and Author of the RI Royal Charter of 1663 which afforded Religious and Civil Liberties for the Colony, a first in world history. Founder of 1663Media Arts, LLC, she develops Historical Dramas based on actual events.
Reading the book the movie is based on, “I was instantly transported into the story, and that night had a very vivid dream of the story playing out as a movie! It felt very “Disney’esque” ” Andrea contacted Michael Dooling, the writer, and optioned the rights to develop his children’s book, George Washington’s Army and Me into a Family-Friendly Movie.
Andrea shares “It’s one of those stories that cannot be left on the shelf. “Elijah and George” is part love story and part American History; it has action, adventure, drama, some humorous moments and a battle scene! And what I especially love is that the story brings the audience into the characters struggles and triumphs in what they can and do endure in the name of family, freedom and home.”
Inspired by her daughter, an artist with special needs, Andrea released her first of a series of illustrated children’s books, “MyKids Unite© Celebrate Friendships For All! Don’t Be a Bafoodle!” The series is part of the MyKids Unite© Franchise produced by her Production Company CherryLaneCreative.com
