My Screenplays

I have written four screenplays during my ‘Flirting with Hollywood’ phase.   Three were adaptations of my suspense novels and all three won or placed in various national screenplay contests.    They are finished, polished, and camera ready, if any of you Hollywood types woudl like to see them!

William F. Brown – Author
thriller novels and murder mysteries

One was a Finalist in the “So You Want To Sell a Script Contest,” First Place in the Suspense Category of the Final Draft contest, Finalist in Fade In, First Place in Screenwriter’s Utopia Screenwriter’s Showcase Awards, Second Place in the American Screenwriter’s Association, Second Placeat Breckenridge.   One was optioned by a small producer.     An early version of The Undertaker won the Columbus Discovery Award presented to me at the Hollywood Film Festival.    As a novelist, the major value to me of trying my hand was to learn dramatic pacing, structure, dialogue, and the discipline it takes to write in that structure.  If you then bring those skills back to your fiction and novel writing, you have gained a lot.

“The Wrath of God” is the title of my adaptation of my novel  Thursday at Noon.

“Target of Opportunity” is the title of my adaptation of my novel  The Allah Conspiracy.

“The Shell Game” is the title of my adaptation of my novel  The Undertaker.

In addition, I have written “A gathering Together”, a domestic, multi-generational family drama which deals with life, death, and the tensions and secrets that bring people together and tear them apart.

    Dear Mr. Brown,
    Your work fascinates me. I’ve ordered AIM TRUE,MY BROTHERS.
    Consider me an admirer.
    About WINNER LOSE ALL, it covers the closing days of WW Two in Germany,
    where the US and the Soviets attempt to recruit Nazi scientists for their military and scientific expertise,seeing the gathering clouds of the Cold War on the horizon. Which was a mixed bag. On the one hand, you can argue that the recruitment of Werner Von Braun and others helped us to beat the Russians. On the other, the West let some war criminals escape justice–all the while we had the Nuremberg War trials. Politics-particularly international politics-is a funny,strange business,where pragmatism trumps idealism,for the most part.

    At any rate, good luck to you in your endeavors..

    Cordially,

    Ira Sandler

      Thank you, Ira! Like all writers, I always appreciate kind comments. All 5 are quite different. The Undertaker is on a $0.99 sale until tomorrow, I think, and Amonngst My Enemies goes on sale on the 19th. I will have my 6th book finished in a few months and will put you on my early release list. Please feel free to put any of your ratings and comments in a review on the Kindle book pages. Again, thanks

      Bill Brown
