Making Believe it’s Real

Ever have trouble believing something is too good to be true?

I’m there right now.

Cassandra’s Castle is screening at the Historic Grauman Chinese Theater in Hollywood next Saturday.


I entered that film festival because that theater brings back many many fond memories. I saw The Greatest Story Ever Told, How the West Was Won and Lawrence of Arabia in that theater when I was a little girl. It was the place our family took out of state visitors, just like Disneyland or Farmer’s Market or Olvera Street in downtown LA. I LOVED that theater. And now my humble little teaser trailer to my story is going to be screening there.


Sad thing is, I cannot go. My husband started chemo therapy and radiation last week. And though he told me to go ahead, I don’t want to leave him alone.

So my son, my daughter -in-law, and my sister will be there. And hopefully Robert Miano will make it too.

I do have my hopes that when our pilot is finished, we will enter this competition again, and will be invited back!
