“Show Stopper” optioned

2014 was a very good year for my short story “Show Stopper.”

The story is about killer Soviet fashion during the Cold War and is set during the 1959 Soviet Exhibition in New York City. Think Mad Men but with an all female cast and suspense.

First, it was selected for publication in Mystery Writers of America Presents Ice Cold: Tales of Intrigue from the Cold War, edited by Jeffery Deaver and Raymond Benson.

Then, film rights were acquired by Kamala Films (Publishers Lunch announcement, sorry registration required).

Thanks Kamala Films, Steve Fisher of APA, and Helen Heller (my agent) of The Helen Heller Agency for everything.

Crazy exciting!

I leave you with a brief small screen documentary from 1959. Can’t wait to see how the characters, setting, and plot are interpreted and re-imagined for the modern big screen.
