Reading the book, “I was instantly transported into the story and that night had a very vivid dream of the story playing out as a movie!” 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 a must-see entertaining film for all to enjoy! 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.”
