Interesting developments for Harry Nelson-Heron ...

Earlier today I got a message from the author of the blog that published the comments on my Harry Heron stories. Jonathon is entusiastic and provided me with a wealth of ideas and suggestions, even offering to help me set one of the stories up as a trial script for a 'pitch' to a producer. Clearly I am going to have to do a lot of work still to give this idea 'legs' and equally clearly it would be a big help if I could get an agent to help me with it. There are a number of things I now need to consider carefully and a whole lot of things I will have to explore to see what is really practical for me.

As I've often remarked, there is a reason I spent my career in the fire and emergency services - I'm not a great salesman. To sell one needs to be confident and a little extroverted. The first I can manage, the second is a problem. That said, I'm going to have to get to work on it - because I do believe that Harry will make a great movie or TV series.

I can't let him down.

    Harry, I find this fascinating. My family are all fire fighters in fact my husband died in the line of duty saving the lives of three co-workers. My grandfathers. father, husband, brothers, and sons are all fire fighters. You room reminds me of my dad's room. I'll try to send you a picture. Here's the really interesting part of meeting you...my dad was in your city during the war and was actually posted there when I was born in America. I didn't meet him until I was 18 months years old. Great to meet you. Lyn Austin Writer lynaustin22.com
