Valentino – a new novel by Laura Hesse

I am hard at work converting the screenplay for Valentino into the last book in The Holiday Series. It was with great satisfaction that I was able to announce the screenplay’s third place status (family category) in the 8th Annual StoryPros Screenwriting contest earlier this year.┬áThe third place win was the kick-in-the-pants I needed to get back into writing.

While Valentino will be written for YA and teens, it will definitely have as broad a family appeal as Two Independents, but with a distinctly west coast flavour.

I will also be reworking my whole Holiday Series line-up with new covers and possibly a teen edition, based on the current screenplay under option, for One Frosty Christmas, as well as the renaming of Two Independents.

Stay tuned for more updates and a preview of Valentino over the next couple of months.

There is no time like the present to follow your heart and pursue your dreams.
