STORM RISING is a movie treatment proposing the Bev Shenstone story as the basis for a dramatic historical film or made-for-TV mini-series. In the style of box office blockbuster The Imitation Game, STORM RISING reveals the true story of espionage and aeronautical design that led to the Spitfire fighter plane being superior to the German fighters, helping win the Battle of Britain. A nerdy young Canadian (Beverley Shenstone) unwittingly becomes the key figure in a battle of wits between British MI6 and the Nazi secret police as both countries race to re-arm prior to the rising storm of World War II.

VERNON BROOKS became interested in Beverley Shenstone because Bev was a first cousin of Vernon's late wife, Nancy Fraser of Toronto. Vernon was born Werner Bruck in Berlin, Germany in 1923 into an assimilated Jewish family, and evacuated to Britain by kindertransport in 1939. He completed secondary schooling in an internment camp for 'enemy aliens' near Farnham, Qubec before attending University of Toronto (BA), University of Chicago (MSc) and UofT (PhD). He attained Canadian citizenship after his BA and changed his name to Vernon Brooks. Vernon held appointments at McGill University, Rockefeller University, New York Medical College and University of Western Ontario (London, Ontario). Dr. Brooks was a pioneer in studies of the neural basis of motor control and motor learning. He became Professor Emeritus at UWO in 1988. He now lives in Victoria, BC, Canada.
