Books ‘n’ Authors and All That Jazz: A highlight
One of the sessions I attended at Books ‘n’ Authors and All That Jazz was “Converting Your Novel to a Screenplay: Screen-Writing From a Novelistâ€™s Point of View” presented by Tom Townsend.
Tom is the award-winning author of twenty-six books, including seventeen novels, and at least five of his novels have been optioned for film. He frequently gives presentations to schools and directs military living history programs.
Tom also has extensive experience in the film industry as the owner of a documentary/historical video production company and a supplier of reenactors, military vehicles, and weapons systems to movies.
I found his advice on how to turn a book into a screenplay very interesting. I highly recommend that any author with an interest in creating a screenplay of a book hear Tom Townsend speak.
