RETM SIGNING: Audra Marie Wheeler
Audra Marie Wheeler is an earnest, New England writer, with a huge passion for film and television. Born and raised in the capital city of New Hampshire, Wheeler grew an interest in acting out TV shows at a young age, improvising skits at the dinner table to entertain her two older siblings and parents. As a teen, Wheeler took up activities such as Thai Kick-Boxing, volunteering as a one-on-one youth mentor for Big Brothers Big Sisters, and documenting her adolescent experiences in a journal. In this time, Wheeler’s enthusiasm for picking apart movies and TV shows perpetuated her affection for her own creations, and she began video-recording adventures with her friends.
Known for what she calls, "head dumps" – producing wholesome work within days of fleshing out a new idea, Wheeler otherwise spends her free-time: painting, reading graphic novels and Jodi Picoult books, and exercising her tubby, 16-pound-tuxedo-styled cat, Nathaniel. Nathaniel, better known as “Mister Muffin Man”, inspired Wheeler to write him as the hero in a children’s animation short script, “Tux”, the adventures of a lazy tuxedo cat who must save his girlfriend from the evil cat group, Alley Cat Strike.
Although Wheeler enjoys poking fun at cultural norms and pushing boundaries in her works, her quit-witted personality and knack for light-hearted comedy has given her the multi-dimensional ability to write for adults and children alike. She enjoys exploring genres such as romantic comedies, dramedies, and action features. Wheeler looks forward to writing in mediums such as comics and children’s books in her bright journey ahead.
"Audra's main talent lies within the captivating characters and stories she continues to create. Her diversity in genre from animation to drama to comedy is a gift unto itself. Her work ethic is also something of an amazement and for that we at Robb Entertainment Talent Management (RETM) are honored to be representing her." - Romane Orlando Robb (Chairman/CEO)
