On April 26th the Kennett Paper (Kennett Square, PA) published a wonderful article by reporter Pru Osborne about my books. Here is the link: www.zwire.com/site/news.cfm?newsid=18263605&;
The following Monday, April 30th, I received a phone call from a screenwriter in Los Angeles, Bill Rotko, (BREACH, Universal Pictures) expressing interest in purchasing the screen rights to the stories. After getting over my initial disbelief, he went on to say that his father had read the article and sent him a copy, encouraging him to buy the rights to the books. He hadn't read the books yet but they were on order from Amazon and he would call me back after he had read them.
After a week went by and I didn't hear from him, I figured he had decided to pass. Oh well, I thought, it was fun getting the call! Then much to my surprise, he phoned again, said he and his writing partner had read the books, loved the story and wanted to negotiate a contract for the screen rights.
To make a 3 1/2 month long story short, the screen rights have been negotiated, the contract has been signed, now all fingers are crossed that he writes a terrific screenplay that the studios just cannot pass up!
