Is it really better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all? Or is it better to find a pharmaceutical remedy? Believers is an apocalyptic romantic comedy inspired by the Grimms fairy tale The Frog King. The world seems poised on the brink of environmental collapse. Inside a remote pharmaceutical lab, researcher Rockwell Wise is bent on creating a love vaccine to keep his heart safe. His ex-lover, drug developer Grace Wright, hungers to create a love potion to rejuvenate our romance-starved planet. When Grace is hired to lead Rocky’s development team in the midst of a company crisis, they become locked in a struggle over love and drugs — with some very unexpected side effects.“The story develops…with some clever plot twists and sharp comic writing…there’s a lot here to enjoy.” -Robert Hurwitt, SF CHRONICLE

“The horny muskrats, and the frequent deluges of frogs? Bring it on!” -George Heymont, HUFFINGTON POST
