Seinfeld Writer Peter Mehlman Pens Debut Novel –

       Excerpt: “I wondered why Mehlman would turn to writing a novel, given all his success with            TV writing. “I just like the actual work,” he said. “You want the actual work to be                something you love because the second you send it out it’s devalued by like 50                    percent. It’s like driving a new car of the lot, it looses its value immediately.”   For the full review, click here:

Huffington Post – Tales of A Writer: My Conversation With Richard L. Kramer by Elan Barnehama

  Excerpt: “Despite receiving awards, television writing was deemed insignificant, Kramer recalled. “No one wanted to write for television when I started. It was beneath consideration. Writer snobbism. But now, that’s no longer the case as television is now culturally interesting, and culturally significant. People study TV and write about it, so now everyone wants to do it.” For the full interview, click here:

Author Q&A: Elan Barnehama, “Finding Bluefield” on Write On Online

Excerpt: “What was your favorite part of writing Finding Bluefield? The greatest challenge? I enjoyed dropping my characters into the 1960’s, a loud, idealistic, and divisive period with a lot of good music and free love. Outrageous was the norm for a counter-culture that approached activism as theater and turned personal statements into political manifestos. As the nation shook off the sleepy 50’s, it found JFK in the White House inspiring hope and symbolizing a generational shift in power. But then there were all those assassinations, the Vietnam War, our cities on fire, and a turbulent civil rights movement. It didn’t take long for the U.S. to find itself in one serious identity crisis. And the having my characters within arm’s length of some of those great moments was also the greatest challenge, since I wanted those events to be a supporting cast and not compete with the main characters. I wanted the novel to be Barbara and Nicky’s personal and not political story.” For the full Q&A, click here:...
