Teton Reckoning RUNNER UP Spring/Summer 2016 Acclaim Screenplay Winners

Grand Tetons

I’ll catch my breath soon.

My western TETON RECKONING! Some day I’ll get to see Madeleine fly across the screen on her palomino Annaduff doing what she does best — defying abusive authorities!

Thank you, Acclaim Scripts! (Click here to see which production companies and agencies will be considering my script!)

Such a fun evening.Debi CWFF2

And a great honor to receive Best Feature Screenplay at the 2016 California Women’s Film Festival.

None of this would have happened without Max Adams and the Academy of Film Writing. Max rocks as a teacher and a mentor!

And I had my own fan club there!

Ken Harter, my always supportive husband, Aaron Harter – his son and Catie Blalock – Aaron’s girlfriend. And fellow screenwriter, Mike Cregan.

TETON RECKONING and FERAL official selections of Austin Revolution Film Festival

I’m super excited to be include in the Austin Revolution Film Festival. And especially with two screenplays:

Teton

The year is 1890…

Determined to head West, a Fort Worth orphan connives to wed an Idaho land baron. Her scheming leaves her fighting for her life against her avenging husband, bribed Pinkertons and a tenacious band of kidnappers — all while battling to survive the treacherous Tetons.

Feral1

 

 

Feral is a short drama about a persistent canine and the unforeseen and deadly consequences that follow him into the lives and pregnancy plans of a young couple.

Addicted

I can’t stop myself. I can’t control it. Will power evaporates…

Wait for it…

Jigsaw puzzles. I’m addicted to jigsaw puzzles. Hopelessly.

I just finished this thousand piece puzzle yesterday morning before work (yeah, tell me about it). One of the more difficult puzzles I’ve worked on, so it was especially satisfying.

I showed Ken the finished product when he got home from work yesterday (our third wedding anniversary) and he asked me what I’d be working on next. Then he said, “I have a couple gifts for you.”

One of my favorite movies ever is — Woman in Gold . puzzle2

And look at my gift! Woohoo!

Today — the first day of our fourth year of wedding bliss, I am indulging in this box of shameless addiction!

(As I sip my gin on the rocks.)
