For many years I’ve craved writing a novel. I’ve allowed myself to get sidetracked into screenwriting, blogging and freelance writing, but now, I am fully committed to getting my novel done.
It. Is. Time.
Well, almost. I will write it as a screenplay first. Yes, I’m doing this backwards, but that’s how I roll.
Part of the procrastination has simply been because it’s based on a true story… one that will have difficult moments to relive, but also many that are inappropriately hysterical.
When a terminally ill mother needs help, she turns to a group of strangers for love and support. Her illness and death brought four women together and not only made them life-long friends, but also changed their destinies. You’ll laugh in the most unexpected of places.
Will it be non-fiction? Hell, no. I respect all of our privacy too much. Plus, I’m smart enough to know the story needs more conflict than anyone’s ordinary life has.
I promise to deliver laughs, as well as tears.
I hope you come on the journey with me, as you all did when my screenwriting partner and I wrote SLAVERY BY ANOTHER NAME. Having the support of my fellow writers and friends keeps my words strong.
You all raise the bar for me, for that, I thank you.
