Writer Statement

"You've Got Words."

I met an exotic Hungarian woman online in 1996, and we wrote literally hundreds (if not thousands) of eMails to each other during the following three years. We also wrote a book and a screenplay. When Anikó flew from her home in Budapest to my place in Los Angeles for a vacation in 1999, I asked her to marry me within a couple of days. We celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary last June.

One night, we were watching an interview with writer/director Nora Ephron in the extras section of her "You've Got Mail (1998)" DVD. At one point, Nora said: "I think it's a real conceit of romantic comedies--certainly of this particular romantic comedy--that you would fall in love with someone entirely because of words. I think it's a fantasy that we would ever really fall in love with someone entirely because of the fact that they were a great writer."

Anikó and I looked at each other and burst out laughing.
