‘Arizona Moon’ wins screenplay award

Standard

So happy to announce that my screenplay, ARIZONA MOON won first place in the
Willamette Writers Kay Snow award for Grades Screenplay.

The script was inspired by my novel VERDICT IN THE DESERT, published by Arte Público Press, in Houston, Texas,  the largest US publisher of contemporary and recovered literature by US Hispanic authors, and part of the University of Houston.

The story:

While defending a Mexican woman accused of murdering her white abusive husband, a rich alcoholic attorney falls in love with the Latina interpreter in a sleepy Arizona town in 1959. When the trial begins, he must find strength to help his client and himself.
