Paradise Valley, AZ April 5, 2012 - Featured on the Oprah Winfrey show, Ken Rotcop author of “The Perfect Pitch” How to Sell Yourself and Your Movie Idea to Hollywood is a master at teaching writers how to pitch their scripts to studio and production company executives on a one-on-one basis. Charles G. Irion, publisher, author, entrepreneur, adventurer, philanthropist and Cindy Zimmermann, columnist, founder of Writing In Style, speaker, trainer, met at the 2010 Scottsdale Screenwriting Conference featuring Ken Rotcop.
Irion and Zimmermann are long known for their mutual passion for the written word. Irion is the author of numerous novels, Zimmermann, Pen World Magazine columnist, speaks nationally on the topic of handwritten communication. Their common interests as mystery writers, is their real connection. Irions’ Summit Murder Mystery Series is the most unique murder mystery series ever written inspired by Irion’s 1987 attempt to climb Mt. Everest and his climb of Mt. Kilimanjaro in 2011. Each book in the series is set atop the highest point of the world’s seven continents. Zimmermann’s mystery is a climb of a different sort. Zimmermann not only shares her lifetime love of handwritten notes, as the world’s self-appointed handwritten note advocate; but how handwritten notes changed her life in a number of ways including how they connected her personally to being a person of interest in a real murder.
Zimmermann writes of Irion in her Pen World Magazine April 2012 article titled “Topic of Conversation.” “Do you like pens?” Zimmermann asks of Irion. On newsstands now. Zimmermann is attending the next Rotcop’s “Pitchmart” April 21, 2012 in Los Angeles, California.
