On November 10, screenwriter Diana Amsterdam traveled from Brooklyn, New York to Naugatuck, Connecticut to perform research for the screenplay based, in part, on elements in my children’s book One April in Boston: The Gift of the Spyglass. On a cold and rainy day, with the assistance of Roger Hamelin of Prospect Limousine Service who acted as her driver and tour guide, Diana visited sites connected with Philip Edwards and various neighborhoods in the town. She reported gaining some great insight and inspiration for the screenplay. The story Diana is writing will be set in a fictional Connecticut town similar to Naugatuck. A second trip to Naugatuck is planned in about a month. Working with Diana I’m getting a real appreciation for her attention to detail and the steps she takes in the creative process even before the writing begins. I also love her enthusiasm as she starts to “build the story.”
