Introduce Yourself : Author, screenwriter by Whitney Stewart

Whitney Stewart

Author, screenwriter

I've been in children's book publishing for 30 years and and am now turning book ideas into screenplays. I have two scripts in revision and am hoping to meet other screenwriters and producers. My interests are in drama, historical, foreign language, brainy crime series, and children's programming.

Amanda Toney

Whitney - Great to have you here! What an impressive lineup of novels that you have. What made you decide to want to transition into screenwriting?

Whitney Stewart

Hi Amanda — I studied film in high school and at Brown University. I always wanted to write screenplays but children's book writing kept me busy. Then, my travels to Tibet, Nepal, and India inspired a teen script set in Asia. And my post-Katrina discovery of a box of German war letters inspired me on a four-year journey to learn the fate of my husband's uncle who went missing on the Russian Front of WWII. My second script is about that journey.

Hi Whitney; Great to hear about your work and allowing your inspiration to follow such a fascinating trail of discoveries. I’m also a travel and history buff, just catching up on stage 32 after a bit of a hiatus. (Post above) Cheers, Theresa
