    Communications & Business Consultant 

    "Suzanne Kelman is a first-rate screenplay instructor who not only teaches the rudiments of professional screenplay development, she delivers it with aplomb! She's a force of nature who's teaching employs a variety of learning tools for many learning styles — printed materials and take-home sheets, visual images to illustrate the learning, group discussion and lively, supportive critique. I'm taking her class a second time and would highly recommend it to anyone who wants that nudge to get started, or support to just keep going to the finish."
     

    Rose Woods

    Artistic Director, Writer.

    Suzanne Kelman is a force of nature as a writer. Whether it be novels or her award winning screenplays, she has a special gift for bringing characters to vivid, evocative life. She creates a world with her words and draws the reader in with both her fall-out-of-your-chair-laughing comedy or keep you on the edge of your seat with dramatic tension so taut, that it feels as if it will snap if you look away.

    Eric Mulholland

    Director, Actor, Writer

    Working with Suzanne Kelman is pure joy. I've had the distinct pleasure of being in the room with her as an actor and co-writer on past projects. I highly regard her ability to create a dynamic, creative and thoroughly enjoyable work environment. As a director, she is clear and consistent with a sharp eye for comedy - I trust her instincts completely. As a writer, she gives ample space for the creative process to flow while possessing editorial skills to distill a story to its essence. Whenever an opportunity to work with Ms. Kelman presents itself, I jump at the chance!

    Book Synopsis

    When small-town librarian Janet Johnson is persuaded to attend a gathering of local eccentric lady writers known as “The Rejected Writers Bookclub,” she gets pulled into a kaleidoscope of craziness she never knew existed. Coerced by their formidable team leader, Doris Newberry, she embarks on a crazy cross-country dash with a band of merry writers to save the club and the reputation of one very special member. As the intrepid adventurers race to complete their quest, the women's lives are irreversibly changed as they bond together through landslides, haunted houses, false labor, and first love.
