Book Trailer: The Secret Room

Ever wanted to find a secret room? Almost every kid tries to, at least once. When Shawna and Thea really do find one -- and their Vermont village wants to connect it to the heroism of the Underground Railroad -- other secrets emerge. This is the author's book trailer. If you are a project developer, you could craft an amazing film from this strong middle-grades novel, bringing out the emotional depth that viewers recognize in, say, Katherine Paterson's book-made-into-film, "Bridge to Terabithia."

Book Trailer: The Darkness Under the Water

This "young adult" suspense novel is set in 1930 Vermont -- a dangerous time for people of minority ethnic heritage. It's shocking what this little state, so often famous for its social justice work, committed against Abenaki Indians in particular. The video here is the author's trailer. If you're a project developer, you could make a very scary and important film from this character-driven book. Contact me about an option.
