Do you hanker to see your novel on the big screen? Have you ever wondered how to pitch to Hollywood executives? What are they looking for and how do you approach them?
Join us as Mary Ann Corrigan, Sherry Harris, Meg Opperman & Marcia Talley share what they learned at the Sisters in Crime ADAPTING TO HOLLYWOOD conference. Topics include the adaptation process from a screenwriter's point of view, how to get past the gatekeepers, what actors/producers are looking for, and advice from deal-makers. Don't miss this opportunity to find out how stories get from page to screen!
Mary Ann "Maya" Corrigan writes the FIVE-INGREDIENT MYSTERIES, with her latest book, FINAL FONDUE, scheduled for release in June. Sherry Harris, our current chapter president, is the author of the SARAH WINSTON GARAGE SALE MYSTERIES, the most recent of which, ALL MURDERS FINAL, launched in April. Meg Opperman's "Twilight Ladies" won the 2016 Derringer Award for Best Short Story. Her short stories have appeared in several magazines and anthologies including ELLERY QUEEN MYSTERY MAGAZINE and SHERLOCK HOMES MYSTERY MAGAZINE. Marcia Talley is a past president of both national and local Sisters in Crime, and she is the award-winning author of the HANNAH IVES MYSTERIES. Her fourteenth novel, DAUGHTER OF ASHES, was released last September. In addition, they are all contributing authors to our chapter's award-winning CHESAPEAKE CRIMES anthologies.
