"The Watchman Cometh"


“Thank you for checking out my gofundme page.
Welcome!  I am Helen O’Donnell. I am an author, writer and producer

I am asking for support immediately to bridge me from this moment to a publishing deal for these new projects.

The series called “The Irish Brotherhood,” based on the book of the same name includes three new short stories, these are historical novels based on true events, documents and tapes featuring the characters of “The Watchman,” Bobby Kennedy and Jack Kennedy. This will also include some new stories on Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack.

The new series will bring the reader into the midst of these exciting events and remind us of a time when politics was fun, uplifting, exciting and anything was possible. The donation will allow me to complete the writing.
The plan is to develop and co-produce through my own production company; write and develop them for TV or Film based on my books and script. These high octane political thrillers  belong exclusively to me. The story will take the audience right into the tornado with shocking candor and never-before-told details.

In these days of our own political turmoil and change we can look back to the past to see an era of equal upheaval and challenge. There will never be another Robert Kennedy or Kenneth O’Donnell. There will never be another Jack Kennedy. There will never be another era so chaotic and thrilling. These stories are a vital untold glimpse of a critical period of American history that must be told now. 
I asking your assistance at this time.”

 Onward!  Helen O’Donnell22781250_1580246309722568_r.jpeg
