Bellwether was a nice, safe place to live. Bad things didn’t happen there. That was until six-year-old Amy Draft went missing. As the investigation progresses, speculation in the media and the neighborhood turns on Amy’s parents, Alan and Jackie Draft. But the young girl’s disappearance is not what it seems, and is only a glimpse of what lurks below the community’s perfection.

REVIEWS 

"Where Yockey at first seems to be probing the importance of the levels of attention we pay to our mates, children and associates, as well as satirizing the ways in which sensation-of-the-week news coverage degrades social discourse, the turn of events leads to a pointed choice between personal and social responsibilities." - SF Gate, Read More

"With Yockey, nothing is at it seems, and we quickly find ourselves sliding pell-mell from a staid suburban landscape into paranormal regions where reality is anything but." - Stage and Cinema, Read More 

"Bellwether is a compelling concoction of mystery, horror, surrealism and tragedy, with a dash of laughter." - Marinscope, Read More
