UPDATE 10/25/13:. Agreement has been reached, contracts are being signed, and my book WILL BE a movie.
2nd UPDATE 4/21/14 Director and film crew arriving today for a week to film a "sizzle reel" to be shown to potential investors and actors. We'll be going to several of the actual locations where events in my book took place. He'll be filming interviews with me talking about those events. Should be lots of fun!

Life is going to get very interesting. Want to join me at the Oscars? :)
I grew up in Rhode Island, and moved to CA after grad school. In 2001, we moved to Florida, so my son could get to know my father, since he lives there half the year. His grandparents on his mother's side live in Russia, so he only sees them once or twice a year.
We loved Florida, but Johnny's mother was living in California, so... we relocated, and he's been seeing her every weekend.
However, he's now chosen to live with her full time, so I am an "EMPTY NESTER" and have returned to Florida.
I'm an author. But, this is by circumstance, not by trade. In the past, I have mostly worked in insurance.
I was working for an insurance agency in Florida, when I met someone, we were married, and then 4 months later I discovered that I had been completely duped from the beginning. Needless to say, I divorced her soon after. During the divorce period, my lawyer and I made even greater discoveries. A year later, I wrote a book about my experience. The story details how we discovered that she was leading a secret, double life.
I also wrote the screenplay and five fictional sequels.
Well, thanks to TWITTER and its ability to generate worldwide publicity, I now have a rather large following, among whom is one well-known Hollywood director who found the story amazing and wants to make the movie.
We are currently in negotiations with a production company for the film rights. Hopefully, we will reach agreement soon.
I am the proverbial "nice Jewish man," raised in a warm, loving home, and well educated So how could I have been deceived, you ask? Well, she was diagnosed a sociopath, and they're pretty good at lying and hiding things.
As for my personal life, any scars from my experience healed long ago, since it was a very short marriage,and ended almost 7 years ago.
I remain a hopeful romantic, able to give 110%. I am looking for the love of my life, my partner, my soul mate. Could that be you?
