Some of you may remember the stage play that I wrote a while back called Runaway. Produced as part of The Windsor Writers Series in 2017, the play is a surreal family drama that reached people in a way I didn’t anticipate. I still get asked about it by friends and audience members. Is the play going on tour? Is there another performance planned?
I am excited to say that although there aren’t any plans to put on a stage production of Runaway, there are plans in motion to make the play into a feature film.
It’s in its very early stages – I haven’t even finished adapting the script into a screenplay yet – but I’ll keep you updated on the project. For now, I’ll just say that adapting the story to fit the medium of film has been really interesting so far.
I’m also going to be working on a new novel starting next month. I also can’t say too much about this one, but it’s going to be something entirely different from The Patch Project. More to come on that as well!
Something I can tell you about is the return of the Windsor Small Press Book Fair! It’s on Saturday, April 13th, 2019 at UCC (upstairs from The Green Bean Cafe). Local publishers and authors will be hawking their wares, and will also be available to chat with you about writing! It’s a great opportunity to meet some local creators, ask questions about the industry, and discover new books! Hope to see you there!
