Books to Movies

I'm sure we all have bucket lists--things we'd like to accomplish before we mosey on to the next phase of existence. One of my bucket list items was to write a book. Check. And, to get it published. Check. Those two items are grand accomplishments, and to have them checked off my list fills me with amazement and gratitude. Never is my fantasy filled brain did I think one of my books would be made into a movie. That dream was so far beyond considering, that it wasn't even on my bucket list. Well, it's happened. Over the past month, they have been turning the characters and story of my book, Christmas for a Dollar, into a movie.


I've been on the set a couple of times, and the experience is surreal; especially since the story is based on my dad and his brothers and sisters as kids growing up during the Great Depression.

I'm going to post a couple of the pictures I've taken while on set. The screenwriter has posted on facebook if you'd like to see more. Just go to Christmas for a Dollar and "like" the site. You'll get an update on the daily shots.

I was just shy of 50 when published books, book signings, book clubs, and movies became part of my life. It's never too late. Keep dreaming. Keep believing.

I love following your "movie posts" on Facebook! It just looks so exciting and touching and all-around grand! I can't wait for Christmas to see it!

Also, I echo Lynn. I'd LOVE to see those movies as well.
