MAGGIE AND THE FOUR WISEMEN
by CarrieAnn Lee
Military | Drama
Logline: Every generation of the Sullivan family has had a soldier to protect them and their country. Their sacrifices over the centuries have taken their toll, but the Sullivans have always come out on top, until now. Maggie Sullivan, a single mother, has to care for a young son with spina bifada, a rebelling teenage daughter and their demented grandmother. Three days before Christmas, her daughter Haley goes missing, and the troops – her family (all retired military) – come to the rescue.
Before the screenwriting began in 2004, CarrieAnn worked in healthcare for all of her adult life. She most recently worked for the Franciscan Healthcare system at St Joseph’s Medical Center and St Anthony’s Hospital. She married her college sweetheart and raised ten children, three boys and seven girls. She still has two children at home.
CarrieAnn has coached ages 12 – 18 yrs in tennis, softball and basketball. She has a family of runners and she herself enjoys hiking and gardening. She also majored in Psychology.
People that know her well will tell you that she is dependable and always follow through, that she gets along with people from all walks of life and that she will be good-humored even during stressful times. She has been considered a peacemaker at every place of employment. She was the “Spirit at Work” rep for St Joseph’s for many years (in charge of employee appreciation activities).
CarrieAnn has been making up and sharing stories since she was old enough to talk, and enjoys entertaining others with her tall tales (and short stories).
