    Rich Leder - We talk about screenwriting and novel writing and how doing both has influenced his process.

    Our conversation with Rich covers a ton of ground, including the open door policy he established with his family. Moving from New Jersey to New York to California to Willmington and how he uses his screenwriting paradigm to write his novels and gets to fill every movie making role when he writes prose. Andrew and I were both also impressed by how he pitched his books at the end of the podcast so if you are having trouble talking people into reading your book give the end a listen.
