When I began my reading frenzy, I discovered Stephen King's first published book called "Carrie." Even when his other books were made available, I always remembered and admired his first. Also in 1976, Barry Manilow released a song called "Weekend in New England." Every time I heard the whimsical lyrics and its moving orchestration, I was reminded of the movie. Those thoughts led me to eventually make this video. "Sue's Hope" is a tribute to the collaboration that occurred between these two men, even though they were unaware of it.
Thank you Stephen and Barry.
I enjoy the mystery that writing a good story offers. Effective writing has occurred when the reader is forced to quickly look over their shoulder.
