Robert Reece, Screenwriter
I'm so excited- soon I will have a new name for my website, a new look to it and more information for you to peruse. My new goal is to continue writing about books and interviewing authors but I wanted a new name that would encompass my love and passion for screenwriting and movies based on books.
Screenwriters are a hard breed to pin down for an interview. Whereas novelists seem willing and ready to send a book, do an interview, call in for a book group, screenwriters are a bit tricky. That's been my experience. I'd love to be able to feature some screenwriters and learn a bit more on what makes these creative minds tick. I don't know how much luck I will have with that endeavor but we'll see.
Do not fear, there will still be books galore! Reading is my passion, my hobby and it's in my blood. If you love books, you know what I mean. Never a day goes by with out reading a few chapters.
Robert Reece is a screenwriter who I am in regular contact with. At the time I was doubting my writing career, (I love writing novels but really the agent search was getting me down) I was looking into taking classes to become a certified yoga teacher. A friend of mine told me about a screenwriting class taught by Robert and I signed up, letting yoga fall by the wayside. So interested and excited by the class, I began mapping out a screenplay and I found myself consumed with the whole process. The challenge of constructing a scene, building dialogue...its what I dreamed of my whole life, truly. Thanks to Robert, my screenwriting journey began when it did.
Robert Reece's most recent piece of work is the Disney movie, Little Mermaid, Ariel's Beginning. Imagine creating the animated world of Ariel and her cohorts, not to mention the prestige of being a writer for Disney. Here is a wonderful interview with him I wanted to share it. Let his words inspire and encourage you.
