I am well into my new legal thriller, which is set in New Mexico, where my first novel, Against The Wind, took place. Sometimes the writing flows, and this is one of those times. It’s always a good feeling when that happens. For me, it means I have my story under control and can let it fly. I’m hoping to finish it in early Spring.
Last week I saw a movie called 99 Homes. It was terrific in every regard. Exciting and timely. The directing was some of the best I’ve seen in a long time, and the acting, led by Michael Shannon and Andrew Garfield, was terrific. It’s a small movie and could get lost in the autumn rush when all the big ones come out, so I hope whoever reads this searches it out and goes to see it. It reminded me of another excellent movie I saw last year, A Most Violent Year, which has all the elements you look for, but was overwhelmed by bigger studio movies. I hope this new film gets a fair chance.
Back to writing.
