Reading: Make Believe (Edna Ferber Mysteries) by Ed Ifkovic – Historic Hollywood Mysteries

Make Believe (Edna Ferber Mysteries) by Ed Ifkovic

I stumbled on this mystery series starring Edna Ferber (Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Showboat, Giant, and Cimarron, to name a few) who I discuss in my screenwriting history lectures because of the way she dealt with the business of leasing (not selling) her work to Hollywood.

Written by Ed Ifkovic, a retired English professor from Connecticut, they are fun and reminded me of the popularity of mystey novels – and books that come in a series – these days. It made me think that many of my students, who research 4 separate screenwriters across their 2 year MFAS, now know several writers who would make very fine puzzle-solvers in a new series.

And so do I.  So why aren’t we writing those books now!
