The Hollywood Connection

10/1/09

For a writer, it’s fun and intriguing to imagine your book being made into a movie.  How much of the story would you incorporate?  Who would play which part?  How would you handle flashbacks?  What would you have to cut?

Now I may be fortunate enough to see two of my books translated into films.  Both The Secret Confessions of Anne Shakespeare and How (Not) to Have a Perfect Wedding are being represented by Hollywood agencies for movie rights.

Although I have no screenwriting experience, I hope to have some involvement in the process.  Should either project come to pass, it will be a fascinating opportunity to learn how scripts are developed and movies made.
