Movies Make Me Burn Brownies

  • Share This Article

Tonight while I was making brownies (these brownies, in fact), my agent called and told me that we had not one, but two offers on the film rights for THE SCORPIO RACES (which, as you'll recall, has only been on shelves for two seconds).

I burned the brownies.

I picked one of them and four seconds later, the news hit the Internet, because the Internet knows everything. This is what the Internet is saying:
Warner Bros. & KatzSmith Productions have optioned the film rights.

I have to confess, of all the books I’ve written, this is the one I wanted made into a movie in the worst possible way. As I wrote, every scene was translated into words from a visual movie scene in my head.

I made some more brownies to celebrate.
