False Victim the movie? Here we go again....

If you're one of my long-time 'regulars' then I'm sure you remember back in 2010 when Lifetime bought the life and movie rights to my first novel.

A year and a half later the A&E channel acquired Lifetime. Lifetime acquired a new CEO and voila - the new CEO decided to drop the 2011 projects that had not already gone to production.
 I was one of those casualties. 
But hey, that's show business, right?

(For you newbies: "False Victim" is a riveting, highly emotional account of my families terror at the hands of a neighborhood stalker - a woman that literally lived around the corner and was so obsessed with removing our young son from our home that she made it a full-time job. When that was unsuccessful she upped the ante and became hell-bent on having me arrested and sent away for crimes that were a figment of her sick, psychotic imagination.)

Well, this afternoon I received word that another group of producers (not Lifetime) is interested.

I am not holding my breath. 

Who am I kidding? Of course I am holding my breath.

And while I'm at it...I think I'll throw in an a copy of 'The Hillbilly Debutante Cafe'. 

Just in case they're in the mood for comedy rather than drama.

What a crazy, wonderful life I lead. 

Til next time,

I will hold my breath with you...cause this will make a great movie!


What a horror you have been through. Not sure I could have written about it. I admire you. I'll go check the book out now.
My book VADA FAITH is on Amazon as Kindle and paperback. Purely fiction and a fun read.
Bless you for hanging in. Good luck with the movie deal!!!

I heard this same story from a guy at work named Bruce, only he and wife were victims and Kathy was the stalker. Hmmm what an odd tale you have weaved.

Dear Unknown, you don’t get to write a book, be on Investigation Discovery and get a movie contract without publicists, producers agents and publishers, plus their attorneys filing through police reports and talking to dozens of witnesses. Even the police knew what was going on. I’ve been vindicated a hundred times over. I am 55 years old and you can interview people in every town I’ve lived since childhood, every job I’ve had, and every organization I’ve been a member of and you’ll find absolutely NO HISTORY of me stalking, terrorizing or even being mean to anyone. Yet, every time i turn around I’m getting emails from complete strangers wanting to know if it’s (insert Bruce’s wife’s name, or should i say ex-wife)? Even Bruce’s own family made contact with me and told me they’d had the same exact experience with her. So.....feel free to believe anything you like. Have a great day, and a Merry Christmas.
