Thanks, KC. I guess what I should have asked was, how does Clint learn enough about various stories to decide which ones he wants to make movies of? Does he read books or screenplays himself on a regular basis, or does he have a staff of people who review books and screenplays for him and then recommend the ones they think he'll like?
In either case, how does an author get Clint or a reviewer to look at their book? I ask this because I'm an author, who (like a million other authors) believes Clint would be very excited and enthused about making a movie of my novel, "Dangerous Dreams: A Story of the Lost Colony of Roanoke." It's an action-packed, suspenseful, nail-biter about the greatest mystery in American history; and there's no one who could do a better job than Clint of making a movie of it. Yes, I'm unabashedly ambitious, but you have to start somewhere; and we old fighter pilots aren't easily intimidated. Thanks, mikerhy
