I recently completed the screenplay version of The Saint of Florenville: A Love Story and have submitted it to a producer for consideration. I’ve dabbled in script formats before but this is my first serious foray into book-to-screen writing. Quite an experience. I found that, once I had completed the first draft, I needed to let go of a literal rendering of the novel and treat the script as a unique entity. This freed me to let the for-film version take on a life of its own.
Next, I will write a two-part miniseries based on my novel, Circles of Stone, and its sequel, Down a Narrow Alley. This story takes us from the U.S. to Peru and back, as an international fashion model searches for her birth mother . . . and learns more about her origins than she ever wanted to know. Both books are available in print and as e-books.
