Here is an interview with bestselling author Nicholas Sparks. Many of his successful novels have been turned into successful movies.
Like many of the other best selling authors I’ve heard speak about joining Hollywood, Sparks almost divorces himself from the process.
He seems to have the ability to stay objective about what’s happening yet still stay involved to an extent as a consultant.
In the sense that the process is not his anymore. The director, casting director, script writers etc. now have the vision for his story.
His latest book ‘See Me‘ looks like it may well be on its way to another book-turned-movie.
Listening to an author with such mainstream success is always an interesting experience.
Even if you have no idea how they got there.
