DR. MEL'S MESSAGE - From my novels to my other projects, no telling what you will read. This is the only place you will get to read about how I developed a screenplay into a novel and what is the driving force. I will talk about many things from films to books to acting to producing.

It only takes one—one person, one unexpected possibility, one ordinary moment of insight to create a life-changing experience. Who was the one person who took that moment and offered needed motivation or created an opportunity that inspired you in ways never imagined?
Mentors see you as you are and awaken the potential for what you could be. They often appear in varied roles: teachers, family members, professional colleagues, influential leaders or friends.
