Some of my wishes are small ones and some are big ones, but this one is gigantic.
I wish one of my books, published or unpublished, would make it to the big screen.
But hey, don’t all writers wish that?
Actually, I’d settle for a television movie…or a mini-series. With the aging of the television-watching audience, you’d think a 60-something brother and sister mystery series would be of interest, especially if their active 80-something parents were regular parts of the cast.
A year or so ago I sent copies of the two Sylvia and Willie mysteries to an agent in Los Angeles who has contacts in the film industry, but sadly, he said he wasn’t the right person to represent my work. I decided to put that notion on the back burner and get back to writing.
I’m now working on standalone suspense novels. I invariably look at my WIPs and think, “This one would make a great movie.” Maybe someday.
