Author Roberta Smith writes in the horror/paranormal genre. To promote her books and the genre, she decided to film a scene from her novel, “The Accordo.” The short film is called, “Norman’s in Love.” Photographer Ryan Brewer signed on as the cinematographer, and she hired professional actor, Micky Shiloah, from LA to bring her strange, egocentric character to life. Husband, Chuck, helped her build a set (drywall, molding, nails, paint . . . the whole nine yards) in a large room in their house. Chuck also played the security guard in the scene. Filming was done in one day and lasted until2:30 in the morning.

“Never thought I’d try to produce my own film, but that’s what I’m doing,” Smith said. “It has been an eye-opening experience. I’m excited for the rough footage to be turned into something fun to watch.”

The film will debut at the upcoming 2015 Horror Book Fest she and marketing collaborator/fellow horror author, Michael Raff, are presenting October 3, 2015 at the Courtyard Marriot. Check out to learn more about that.
