Martin is a gifted screenwriter who "got" this story on even more levels than I. He faced no easy writing job distilling into an exacting two-hour movie script such a powerful story -- one filled with myriad events, emotions, characters and consequences -- but he's done it brilliantly. I got chills when I read it. Every time I read it. Martin is calling his script Among the Living, and it is being shopped to production studios, represented by The Kohner Agency. Stay tuned...
Karen Tintori knew she'd be a writer from age twelve. As a child, she walked ten blocks to the public library, checked out as many books as she could carry between her interlocked fingers and her chin, read them quickly and returned for another stack.
Before she was thirteen, she'd read the entire children's section and bristled when the librarians would not permit her to borrow books from the adult section until she was of age. Patience was a lesson she'd begin to learn early--the librarians invited her, instead, to re-read the children's section.
