The screenplay of a long-time editing client has taken first place in an international film festival. Jana Meador's "Crossroads of Mortals" in February won "Best Unproduced Screenplay 2017" at the Catharsis International Film Festival in Belgium and now has the chance to have the script produced and filmed by the Catharsis production company. The screenplay is based on Meador's novel "Of Thorns, Roses and a Devil's Lie," which I edited in 2015. The novel and screenplay tells the story of wildlife photographer Margot Smith, who when traveling on assignment to remote Lingit, Alaska, sets on a collision course the lives of four people and a decades-long secret haunting them. Can a tragic event from the distant past destroy their lives in the present, or will the human spirit prevail? The book is available online.
