It is a dream of many best-selling authors to become screenwriters as a means of turning their books into movies. In this episode, you will get a glimpse of the reverse scenario- when a very successful Hollywood screenwriter channels his voice into books, with his latest novel YOU MIGHT FEEL A LITTLE PRICK, a murder mystery with subtle messages about the flaws of our health system.
Reuben Leder comes from Hollywood royalty- his sisters Mimi Leder being a DGA and Emmy winning director, and Gerardine Leder a successful casting director.
He is a multi-episode writer behind top series MAGNUM P.I. and has sold several of his specs to Steven Spielberg, Lawrence Bender, and Robert Evans.
In this inspiring podcast, we discuss what it is like being in development hell on movie projects, his own personal hell in the health system while tending to his wife before she passed away, the advice he has been giving to his daughter, also a screenwriter, and working on another personal novel to honor the journey of his parents surviving World War 2.
