A trip to the movies

Last week Robin Schorr's RCR Pictures bought the film rights to Wolves of Fairmount Park. My amazing manager, Brooke Ehrlich of BEAM Management handled the deal and it's pretty exciting. Horror film fans will recognize the photo from Frailty, a great, demented movie directed by and starring Bill Paxton that Robin worked on as an executive. She also produced The Prince and Me, Peaceful Warrior and Food, Inc.

I wanted to find a still of the awesome angel with the flaming sword that appears to Bill Paxton in the movie, but it doesn't seem to be out there on the web. It's my favorite moment of the film.

Next weekend, I'll be at the Philadelphia Writers Conference, teaching a three-part seminar on Short Story. If you haven't been, the conference should be an excellent chance to spend time with some great writers like Solomon Jones, Kelly Simmons, Greg Frost, Nelson Johnson, author of Boardwalk Empire, YA author Marie Lamba, and many more.
