REDEMPTION is hands down the best love story I have ever read... with surprises that keep on coming. ~Melanie Mayron, Actress, Director, Writer


In 2001 Patricia Burroughs was awarded a prestigious "Don and Gee Nicholl Fellowship in Screenwriting" by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in Los Angeles. The script, "Redemption," is an adaptation of her first published novel, La Desperada, previously titled What Wild Ecstasy.

By making this script available as a supplement to her book, Adapting Your Novel Into an Award-Winning Script (And Why You Don't Want To, A Cautionary Tale) she allows its use for educational purposes only. No other rights are granted with the purchase of this script.

"I have written a book for others like me who dreamed of seeing their novels on the silver screen, Adapting Your Novel Into an Award-Winning Script (And Why You Don't Want To, A Cautionary Tale) which heavily references this script and the source novel. So for those who want to really dig in and compare the two, here is the script you've been asking for to go with the novel, which has been available for several years."

The formatting in this script simulates an industry script, but the margins and layout are not exactly the same, nor do screenwriters use double-sided pages. These choices were made to keep the production costs as low as possible.

About the Author

Patricia Burroughs - Pooks - began her writing career in romance with five published novels. She received nominations and recognition from RT Reviews and was a Finalist for Romance Writers of America's Rita.

Then she got lured over to the dark side - screenwriting. She received a Nicholl Fellowship from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences for an adaptation of her first published novel, What Wild Ecstasy, under the title, "Redemption." Uncredited but paying work followed, and she was happy with her Hollywood dreams...

Until one day she woke up with a new story rooting itself into her heart, a story that couldn't be told in a script but needed many more pages to spread out, flex its muscles and take wing. She returned to novels and is presently writing an epic fantasy trilogy. The first in the series, THIS CRUMBLING PAGEANT, will be published in print and digital in 2014.
