Your books seem like they’d make great movies. Can you have one made?

I have had some interest on my books over the years, but so far nothing has come of it.  It amuses me that some folks seem to think I have control over these things, like I could just get it done but haven’t thought of it yet.  I have control over nothing buy my books themselves.  And even then, it can become doubtful.  Getting a book made into a movie is a long, chancy, one in a million happening.  It can take years and years even after they buy the rights, and after that, it can still fizzle.  I’d be very excited about having a book made into a movie, even though I know they’d probably change the script, the characters, and the ending and then I’d probably hate it, but I’d still go for it.  I think it will happen someday, but until then, I’ll just focus on the books.
