"Authors and writers often don't realize what is required for adaptations of their projects to film or television," said Wilkov. "To make the leap to the entertainment industry, writers need to get clear about what their stories and books are about and how they can successfully lift into a Hollywood script or screenplay, whether they write them or work with other writers to adapt them."

"Jennifer Wilkov brings a wealth of experience and knowledge, along with warm enthusiasm, to the Books to Film panel at ThrillerFest. We're very excited to have such a talent at the conference, with other special guests including George R.R. Martin, James Rollins, and Megan Abbott," said Kimberley Howe, executive director of ThrillerFest.
