I’m Mollie E. Reeder, author & filmmaker. Hello!
In 2016, I co-wrote, produced and edited Aria Appleton Shines like the Sun, a musical family comedy featuring kids, dogs, singing, animation, pyrotechnics, and everything else they told us not to do in a microbudget movie. Aria Appleton will screen in November 2016 at the Lone Star Film Festival and is currently seeking further distribution.
As a home-schooled only child growing up in the suburbs of Texas, I spent my formative years playing outside, riding horses and reading books. I devoured endless 1990’s Hardy Boys paperbacks, hours of Hawaii 5-0 and Bonanza reruns, and dozens of ill-fated trips down the Windows 98 edition of the Oregon Trail.
I wrote my first book when I was four, Why Are you So Grumpy? (spoiler alert: tragic ending) and I haven’t stopped since.
I like to tell cinematic stories of adventure and redemption, inspired by everything I loved as a kid: science fiction, military culture, theology, American history, and the powerful forces of nature.
Currently, I’m writing a new series of novels – the first book, Raptor Uprising, is planned for release in 2017. Elevator pitch? Velociraptors and resistance fighters!
