August 30th, By Nick Vivarelli U. They are shopping the project to prospective U. Sollima and the Leones are seeking A-list U. The plan is to go into pre-production next summer and start shooting in Canada in the winter of It seems to have worked. The weeklong Writers in Paradise is about to commence its 15th season, with a returning faculty of notable authors and a growing list of published alumni. The faculty members will offer free public readings during the conference, and for the first time in several years Lehane will be on hand, as the keynote speaker on Jan.

Petersburg and his native Boston for many years before moving to the Los Angeles area. See schedule. When you and Sterling Watson, former director of the creative writing program at Eckerd, co-founded Writers in Paradise 15 years ago, did you expect it to be successful for this long?

I hoped it would. Well, one would be Lori Roy. Well, damn! Good for her. People who taught me have said the same thing. Why include the free public readings as part of Writers in Paradise? They pull in the outside world. That was the plan always, from the very beginning. Writers in Paradise has an impressive core of faculty members who return each year. How does that happen? We established a rule very early amongst the faculty.

The faculty has to be together for a week, all the time. It just takes one to upset that apple cart and the alchemy is gone. It affects their attitude toward their students, their work ethic. What kind of writers have you aimed to have on the faculty? They love to teach. They love their students. How much involvement do you have with Writers in Paradise now? I work with Les Standiford at a pretty big remove.

I gave him carte blanche when he came in. He says, what about this person or that person, and I say yea or nay. That was always my primary job. What I brought to the party was my Rolodex. Do you miss teaching? I ran a TV show last year. I ran the writers room. I thought, this is kind of like teaching, at a different pitch.

No, I stepped off. That one is more fun than a barrel of monkeys. When we spoke a few years ago, you were working on a screenplay based on Florida writer John D. What happened to that one? We were all set to go and the star got injured. Between all these TV series and movies, when might we see another book from you? The dirty secret about writing books is that they get harder, for me, not easier.

I never work from a place of confidence. I always expect it to fail. So novel writing is different from screenwriting? Yes, totally different. Follow colettemb. The schedule All readings are free and will take place in the Miller Auditorium on the campus of Eckerd College, 54th Ave. S, St. Books will be available for purchase on site, and author signings will take place following readings.

The plotting is good, after a bit of a slow start, and moves along well, dragging us happily with it as usual. This was much better than I had feared. I felt the pain and loss, as I always do when bright young people are hurt or lose their way. Their love and team spirit are the two elements that keep me coming back to Lehane, again and again. Yes, I will read the final book, set 11 years after this.
