I learned that The Generals Daughter was not the only book of his to make it to the screen which I had thought was the case. Plus there are many optioned so we may yet see more Demille books on the screen.

In my last Newsletter, I told you about the problem I had with my government check from the Bestselling Author's Relief Fund (BARF), but since then, the government has declared me Too Big To Fail, and has sent me, in lieu of a bailout check, a note of encouragement, telling me to hang in there.
heh heh
thank you

On the author's web site I saw 8 movies listed that were from his books. One of them was The General's Daughter which was a great story. Hmmm, I may add this author to my Awesome Author Challenge list!
