Elmore Leonard

NOVEMBER 16, 2007
ELMORE LEONARD'S 10 RULES OF WRITING was recently published by Harper Collins. Leonard is considered one of the greatest crime novelists working today and a master of dialogue. Many films have been made from his stories including GET SHORTY, JACKIE BROWN, OUT OF SIGHT and 3:10 TO YUMA. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to meet Elmore (now 82) and work with him and his researcher Gregg on this project.
