LADY OF THE LIGHTHOUSE
Sample Pitch for an Original Graphic Novel
A grieving lighthouse keeper finds a child abandoned on the beach during the first intense storm of the season. However, when she brings him home and draws a bath, she’s shocked to find not a child in her tub, but instead... a seal.
The boy is a selkie pup, someone who can shift between human and seal form, who lost his family pod while swimming through the strong currents. Now Joanna, with the help of her sailor friend--and crush--Alyce, vows to bring the young Pup back to his pod; even if it means confronting her own loneliness in the process.
The Lady of the Lighthouse is a tale of three lost individuals, all of different meanings, challenging exactly what it means to find a family.
