Trilobites – the Film?

September 16, 2018

stargirlAfter unsuccessful attempts to market screenplays based on my novels Vipsania, Bulla Felix, and Dreamweaving, I never expected my book about Trilobites to appear in a movie.  So I was quite surprised when I was asked to sign a release allowing Disney to use the book in an upcoming TV movie entitled “Stargirl.”

Apparently the film, in which “A quirky, home-schooled teenager shakes things up at her uptight high school in Arizona” features at least one character who is a paleontologist. The film makers want to use my book “as set dressing/props (cover, inside pages)” in the film. Wonders never cease!

Meanwhile, an interview about my fossil collecting and my book entitled Fossil Collecting in the Mid-Atlantic States, which was published more than 27 years ago, appeared in the Hampshire Review (based in Romney, West Virginia) this past Wednesday, written by Ed Dewitt and featuring several pictures of fossils – me included.

    Hey Jas, One step nearer to being ‘discovered’! I hope that happens soon, before you really become an old fossil! Congratulations, and Hi to Jim. d


    • Thanks! I think the “old fossil” stage was reached some time ago. I’ll pass on your greeting to Dad. Hope to see you soon!
