Before I knew I wanted to be a filmmaker, I wrote stories. As far back as second grade, I remember writing longhand in a spiral-bound notebook, then reading my work to my classmates.
Film soon entered my life and became my dominant medium, but - perhaps inevitably - I eventually returned to telling stories on the page.
JOSÉ AND THE PIRATE CAPTAIN TOLEDANO
Graphic Novel - Kar-Ben Publishing
Illustrated by Joshua Edelglass
A dramatic expansion of the story I first told in a short film, this middle-grade graphic novel follows José, a young refugee from the Spanish Inquisition, who falls in with the mysterious Pirate Captain Toledano.
As of this writing, the book is being illustrated, and is due to hit bookstores in late 2021. It has already won the honor of a PJ Library Author Incentive Award from the Harold Grinspoon Foundation.
