A Very Special Guest - Jamie Lee Curtis

She puts the sparkle in Leroy Jethro Gibb’s baby blues…

Hey, Hollywood, wake up! Looking for great material? Look at these books...

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 films that have no storyline, no originality — and no compelling 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) After adapting a number of books, I have a good eye for a good property. It is a book that i would option in I had the money….

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

Lily of Peru

DAVID EDMONDS

A revolution, a lovely woman, an innocent American trying to save her.
Set to Neruda’s poetry.

Be My Ghost

CAROL J PERRY

A lovely old inn on Florida’s Gulf Coast is the perfect location for celebrity ghosts from the past…and whodunits today.

Parallel Lines

JILL D. BLOCK

Love in NYC is always fun. In 1981 Jenna celebrates her 18th birthday – and so her story begins in a city that pulses with 

Commando

JEROME PREISLER

A dashing young hero, Will Cushing’s daring exploits on land & sea saved the nation.
The inspiration for
Luke Skywalker. 

Awakened

T. E. BRADFORD

SC Sci-Fi action adventure that speculates on the future of the creator and the created. A powerful story of discovery.

Monkey Business

CARLTON EASTLAKE

An over eager TV writer meets an enigmatic enchantress on location in Florida.  A darkly amusing love story of a sort.


Delia Ephron

Delia Ephron, a bestselling NYT author is a also a  screenwriter. Her films include You’ve Got Mail and The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. In Siracusa she is a rather dark look at marriage set in the unusual city in Sicily.


Indra Nooyi

Ny Life in Full is written and perfectly narrated by Indra Nooyi, the former CEO of PepsiCo.  Not many business memoirs make you laugh and cry. A touching story of the first woman of color and an immigrant to head a major US Corporation
