Are you like me? Tired of looking at those little squares on streaming channels? So frustrated by not  finding anything new and original? I don’t want to see another re-make of Little Women, I’m bored with action films that have no storyline — or dialog. 

As the host of Joy on Paper, I read hundreds of books a year. Having been in the film business (three of my spec scripts were optioned) I have adapted books for the screen — so I have a good eye for a book that would be ideal for the big — or little — screen.

So wake up, Hollywood. Here are my suggestions.  Entertain us. Inspire us. Make us laugh or cry…but for goodness sakes make somethng original!
