Hollywood Pictures Inc in Fairview

In the 1920's it seemed the whole country was caught up in excitement about films and Hollywood.    Asheville and Western North Carolina were well aware of the hoopla of Hollywood.   In fact, Hollywood (or at least filmmaking) was already beginning to come to Western NC.I recently stumble across an article from the Jun 6 1926 issue of The Asheville Citizen Times which mentions that Hollywood Pictures Inc, was planning to film just south of Asheville, near Fairview.  But....was this really…See More

The Sultan’s Dream (Part of Living Poem) When it comes to walking, the jig’s up.No more fit lad sitting at the pub.No more flim-flam smiling with a limp. See how the legs totter and the torso leans.Do you know what a lame sultan dreams?Of reclining on a divan wearing pantaloons, Comparing his plight to a mountaineer’sNegotiating an icy bluff in a fierce wind,And then lounging in a tent to unwind. Which…See More

Profile Information

About me, my books and screenplays:

My personal site Life’s Ultimate Test and profile has received the attention of the Presidential 2008 Obama campaign for striving to bring about change in an area of education that has been overlooked and left on the back burner. The result was accepting the honor of being an Ambassador of the state of Maine for the 2007-2008 Presidential Obama campaign yearbook.


In the year 2000 I was honored for my unselfish attitude as a self appointed community advocate. For my dedication and inspirational work, Adelphia Communications and Romance classics, a network from the American Movie Channel, had selected me to receive the "Cool Women of America Award" Only two were chosen from Maine, and I was one.


I have volunteered in three different school doing craft projects with the students on all holidays. Done special projects, along with sewing customs for plays. Volunteered in the head start program. Been a member of the parent-teacher group, doing many fund raisers for classroom needs , and school playground equipment.


I have also served as vice president of both the People's Action Committee and the Maine Association of Independent Neighborhoods, which deals with low income issues. Held office as Treasurer for Task force on Human needs, as well as second vice president of the American Legion Auxiliary. I was certified by Pine Tree Legal as a community advocate. Volunteered helping the elderly, and handicapped along with anyone in need of help that has crossed my path as I go through life. Started a group for young children in the community called "Tiny Tots" doing fund raisers for t-shirts, parties and a float for the parade to enrich the lives of young children. I also hold many certificates in different fields.


I went on to publish books and screenplays:

" Broken Souls"
Doris Anne Beaulieu

NATIVE OF MAINE WRITES OF OLD-TIME FARM LIFE
SMITHFIELD, MAINE-MAINE author Doris Anne Beaulieu says her book, titled The Torment's of the Modest, Secluded Farm Life," ISBN: 1-58721-806-2 will bring you heartwarming laughter and tears to your eyes. Hopefully, you will gain a better and closer understanding of old country folks." It is "filled with down-home stories and humor for a true picture of how life in the country with only your eight siblings for playmates."

She describes the work as " an old time book from a girl in the back woods of Maine, who had a Guardian Angel to protect her and teach her about the REAL WORLD."

She explains, "The book is the true story of a young girl living a very modest, secluded country life in the 1950's, in the state of Maine. She starts by explaining how country folks live life year after year...Then she takes you though the hard young working years. And then how she was tormented mentally in all directions as she enters the real world. She just couldn't believe or understand the world and its language being raised as she was in the county going to a Catholic school."

She notes, "As more parents are choosing to home tutor their children for good reasons, I found myself compelled to write my true story to help parents understand the long lasting effects of a modest, sheltered upbringing before making the final decision...I only wish for parents to see how a child may be affected and how these issues also need to be addressed."

The book has also been put into screenplay format for producers.

My screenplays:

Now Available to movie producers:

" THE TORMENT'S OF THE MODEST, SECLUDED FARM LIFE "

Was picked up by, Filmmakers Collectives who found a screenplay writer " James LaBudde " who adapted the book into a screenplay format and we are now looking for a producer to produce the screenplay. New title for screenplay is “BROKEN SOULS”

However, the story and characters in the film are the type that many other women and families can connect with and feel a bond with. The screenplay addresses some very real issues that we are seeing on the television news everyday. Topics such as child abuse, parental anxiety, religion, education and even the normal fears felt by two young people in love.

" INTERNET FRIENDSHIP TO THE EXTREME "

James is upset by the fact that his stay-at-home wife, raising the children, is on the computer all day in chatrooms. Lynn is living life on the edge whenever James comes home and can not seem to do anything right in her husbands eyes.

Wanting to see who she is talking to and meeting while he is at work, he decided they will attend the local chatroom night out a local bar. Lynn is so frightened, not even knowing what to wear. She wonders what will trigger James anger and who she will meet that she has been talking too.

James who is a lobster man finds many new faces at the dock, and his brother who fishes with him brushes it off as people needing work. As they set off laughing at how some have presented themselves looking for a job, the boat.......

Halloween Special


"Wishing Witch"

Jenny is a girl who is always wishing for more then she has and talks in riddles. A Halloween day at school finds Jenny getting her classmates in a heap of trouble with the teacher. Jenny's riddles take a life of there own, as her classmates accuse her of being a Witch in a princess costume. Jenny realizes she is a witch when she must wish herself out of danger while out trick-or-treating.

Christmas Special.

" THE BOY ELF "

This story is about a poor young boy who is the school bully, and refused to believe in Santa. After a trip with Santa to the north pole "Joseph" learns his lesson, and believes Santa exists with pride of becoming Santas helper. His return home is filled with restored faith,and he begins his work with providing Christmas to his friends.This could work out good as an animation.

" ERROR of the Governor "

A story of a woman (Sarah) who becomes the Governor of her state. During her time running for office, she has a late night encounter with her public relations man. The threat of a scandal becomes a tragedy that is covered up by Sarah fiance when she finds herself pregnant. A true political perfect picture image for the sake of Sarah career, love, and an unborn child.

" School Beat "

A mother's cry to the local school board brings along changes in a High School. A great story to help uncover danger area's in a school, while learning stories of peer pressure and bullying. This story tells how a community joins together fighting for better safety after an epileptic boy is found unconscious. We all need to learn better awareness on this subject.

Kids Love For Animals ( Poem )

Children’s favorite shows are of animals

Ducks in water and chicks learning to speak

Dazzling ostrich and many free birds
