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 really will depend on where my mind takes me. I hope you will join me on this journey.
Journey to the Hopewell Star Kindle Edition by Hannah D. State (Author) Format: Kindle Edition
Thank you for all of the well wishes as we experienced Tropical Storm Claudette. The wind and rain were massive, but we escaped with minimal damage to our home. Basically, the wind pushed the rain through the window seals and under the front door. So, we had water to clean up. We feel blessed as eleven people lost their lives during this storm.
Now for better news. Take a look at this book by Hannah D. State. Enjoy!
