"There's a difference between trying to make a good movie, and making a movie to try and do good."
After meeting author David Baldacci on the set of his "Wish You Well," he motivated me to follow my dream of becoming a writer. Mitchum's "Right hand, Left hand" is one of my actor monologues. I always liked this story, but not its setting, or its distracting "young girl in crisis" side-story. That is why I chose a Western time-frame and made Ole' Unca' Birdie the hero.
