New to the world of books this week in Fresno are the novel version of K. Raven Rozier’s screenplay about a child with multiple personalities and the re-release of a book about Corcoran State Prison’s most noted inmate, Charles Manson. Also, author Vincenza Scarpaci will be in town for a book signing.
“Last Door” (Lulu.com, $19.99) Fresno’s K. Raven Rozier’s new book looks at the true story of a young boy with more than 400 personalities and his family’s efforts to deal with the boy’s secrets.
The story was originally written as a screenplay to be shot in Fresno in 2007. The movie has been delayed but will be shot with Fresno’s Sid Haig as the director.
“We thought we would release the book to create some interest in the movie,” Rozier says. “A story of this magnitude does not come along often for a writer. After I had finished the screenplay, I realized the story was so rich I had to write a book.”
