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.

Anger ignites among the miners, but Louis Tikas, trying to heal after Pennsylvania strikebreakers murdered his wife and child, is determined to stay out of the inevitable battle with the Colorado coal field corporation thugs sent in to wreak havoc on the strikers and their families. When the beautiful and strong-willed Mary Dunn and her 10-year-old son Carson arrive in Ludlow and get caught in the crossfire, Louis can no longer stay silent. Based on an international award-winning screenplay, The Coal Miner’s War is a fictional account of a watershed moment in labor history that unfolded in Colorado on April 20, 1914, dubbed the “Ludlow Massacre.”
