A hybrid of fiction and non-fiction, this book includes the original short story and the screenplay adaptation, plus photos of film and an act of TV pilot script. Angela Jacobs makes life altering decisions while waiting for her boyfriend in her small town, along with their friends. The non-fiction part is the story of how Gena Ellis became a screenwriter and the behind the scenes of how the short story set in West Virginia became an award-winning Australian film.
Perfect for film students and fans of all types of films curious about the process.

Sometimes you never know what shape your stories will take. I never planned on writing someone else’s memoir but best plans are no plans. My work-in-progress took me to Mississippi, Hawai’i, Savannah and other locations where I spent time with Jason, Timmy and wonderful tea folks. I’ll be blogging about this upcoming book. My published book was modeled after the behind-scenes film books that include the published screenplay. I love seeing the transformation of script on page to film and then back again to the written word.
