Pineapple Port has been optioned for film/television!

I've mentioned in the past that I'd really LOVE for Pineapple Port Mysteries to become a television series. I entered a contest and made some other attempts to make that happen, but it isn't an easy thing to do...  But I guess tossing that thought into the universe triggered something, because voila! The Pineapple Port Mystery Series has been optioned for film/television!

1 introThis development doesn't mean it will make it to TV, but it's a big step closer.  I need to keep doing everything I can to make it happen. Currently, I'm working with the production company to sell the series to studios, and in our pitch materials, I need to pick a bunch of "representative" actors for the parts to help them imagine it. 

So here's where you can help me!

Let me know what actor(s) you think would be perfect for the parts of Charlotte, Declan, Darla, Mariska, Frank, SEAMUS and Stephanie!

Maybe you've pictured who you imagine in these roles?

Let me know and help me get Pineapple Port on TV! If no one comes to mind, you don't have to fill out every field, and you can put more than one option for any of them.

Call it a cozy mystery, call it a feel-good thriller -- by the end you'll be calling Pineapple Port your new favorite series! Murder, romance & laughs strike a Florida community full of characters you'll never forget.

Book One: Pineapple Lies - Growing up in one of Florida’s fifty-five-plus communities, Charlotte never expected life to be wild. Golf cart racing with her surrogate mothers Mariska and Darla was about as nutty as life got...until she found the hot pawnbroker’s mom buried in her backyard. Talk about making a lousy first impression. Armed with nothing but her wits, Pineapple Port’s questionable cast of characters and a growing crush, Charlotte is determined to solve the mystery of Declan’s mother’s murder. Hey, at least this guy’s skeletons aren't in his closet.

Book Two: Pineapple Mystery Box - When a giant inflatable Halloween witch goes missing in the Pineapple Port retirement community, Charlotte’s eager to nab the culprit. Before she can lift a fingerprint, someone threatens to kill a new neighbor who looks like an adorable Pomeranian but possesses a disturbing talent for revenge. Moments later, a stranger demands the return of a mysterious wooden box… or else. Charlotte's boyfriend, Declan, isn't having a great morning either. His calculating ex-girlfriend has returned to claim she's the rightful owner of his pawnshop. She’s livid he’s found a new lady, too. Eh. Things could be worse. At least Charlotte doesn’t know that a mojito-swilling killer who fed his grandmother to a cat is on his way to Pineapple Port…

Book Three: Pineapple Puzzles - The infamous Puzzle Killer returns to Charity, Florida, in search of a rival murderer, and when two serial killers battle, Charlotte, Declan, Seamus and a naked cat find themselves on the chopping block!

Always where Jesse’s at. Always when he’s in trouble.  Jesse is divided between ending Delilah, a new love interest, discovering the identity of a certain brown wolf and staying alive.
