Episode 39 with Cynthia Whitcomb

Inspiration from The Beyond

October 31st, 2018

Is it possible to make art with the help of ghosts? Cynthia Whitcomb, a successful screenwriter, has sold over 70 screenplays, 30 of which have been produced on national television and . . . also admits to receiving “help” from the beyond. In this fascinating interview Cynthia shares how she broke into the Hollywood filmmaking business, the riveting details of her discovery that her made up stories were actually historical facts being sent to her from from the beyond and how she’s been able to channel her writing and let go of the “inner critic.”
