The film rights to Kristina Y. McMorris's novel "Between the Lines" are being optioned by Original Film (Superman Returns, Sweet Home Alabama), set to be co-produced with Ken Atchity of AEI, and the manuscript is currently on publisher submission.

Kristina will be reading an excerpt from her manuscript "Between the Lines," a WWII love story and winner of the 2007 Kay Snow Literary Award, at Barnes & Noble in Clackamas, Oregon, on Sunday, December 9th at 1 pm, as a means to support the "Books for Kids" program.


Kristina Y. McMorris & Linda Yoshida's FLAHERTY'S CROSSING is completed (contemporary women's fiction with romantic and suspense elements). FLAHERTY'S CROSSING, Kristina’s second book was recently awarded 1st place in the Mainstream Category of the 2007 Gateway to the Best Contest and 2007 Golden Acorn Contest. It is currently a finalist in two other national writing competitions, and has placed in four others in the past several months.

"FLAHERTY'S CROSSING immediately engages the reader with lyrical prose, a plot equally moving and suspenseful, and real, compelling characters. The writing is as fresh as it is evocative. From heartwrenching to heartwarming, inducing laughter and tears, this virtual roller coaster of a tale won't let the reader go until reaching the final turn of the ride. A superb novel bearing a message not easily forgotten."
~ Angela Fox, publisher of Clackamas Review/Oregon City News

CROSSING just took 1st place in the Cleveland Rocks national writing contest.
