Sentinels of Tzurac Screenplay Adaptations

I’m pleased to announce my involvement in the screenplay adaptations of sci-fi author James Raven’s novels, Sentinels of Tzurac.

The screenplays have won numerous awards, and James Raven Productions is currently seeking funding for production for all three films.




The Novels

Sentinels of Tzurac: Terra Major Under Threat

The year is 2055. Earth’s natural resources have been ravaged and the planet is slowly dying. MERIC, the mining company owned by Samuel Jensen that employs new recruit engineer Kyron, is now mining a newly discovered planet known as Terra Iota when an explosion rocks their operations and brings them to a screeching halt. A strangely powerful blue crystal they will come to know as Xytrinium is cause of the explosion and Kyron is sent to Terra Iota to investigate. Saying goodbye to his love Torri, Kyron embarks on a journey to the distant planet, unaware that evil forces lurking within his own company don’t want him to arrive on Terra Iota alive. Someone is moving behind the scenes to control all of this valuable volatile substance and his motive is as simple as it is diabolical: he is determined to exert complete power over the entire world. Caught in the middle, Kyron now finds himself in a war with a man who seems to hold all the cards; and when a murder, an ancient gold ring, and his father’s hidden past reveal startling truths, Kyron will risk everything to save Earth—and the life of the woman he loves.
