Writer Mary “HoneyB” Morrison and Editor Susan Mary Malone’s Work to Hit The Big Screen
Miami, FL: At the 15th annual American Black Film Festival, July 8th 2011, Director/Producer Leslie Small and Producer Jeff Clanagan announced a seven-picture deal with New York Times bestselling author Mary “HoneyB” Morrison for the author’s series “Soulmates Dissipate.” The first book planned to be brought to film was originally edited by award-winning author and editor Susan Mary Malone (http://www.maloneeditorial.com).
Mary Morrison has established a fan base of millions after her 15 published novels, soon to be 16 with the release of “The Eternal Engagement” slated for the 26th of July 2011. This latest development is yet another milestone in the success story that is her “Soulmates Dissipate” series that all started with the first and title work edited by Susan Mary Malone. The book was published in 2003, and set off a wildfire word-of-mouth sensation. But no one at the time could have imagined how far it would go today.
Miss Morrison stated the following on working with editor Susan Mary Malone: “God blesses each writer with a gift. God blessed me with Susan M. Malone. While I possessed the talent to write awesome stories, heaven knows I was lacking in the nuts and bolts area (i.e., grammar, character development, etc.). But not for long. When Susan mailed me my manuscript along with her eighteen-page complete editorial, I was grateful I had chosen the perfect person for the job.”
Susan Mary Malone has worked as an editor, columnist and journalist since 1993, with a BS in Political Science and minors in English and Journalism. She has a client list that includes NY Times Bestsellers, Essence Bestsellers and books featured in Publishers Weekly. She is also an award-winning author of fiction and non-fiction herself.
