Max Timm of the ISA had the fun opportunity to interview author, screenwriter, and director, Betsy Franco. It's rare to bring on a novelist to the Curious About Screenwriting podcast, but because of Betsy's connection to the industry as a screenwriter and director, it was a perfect fit. And yes, her last name does ring a bell due to her talented sons James, Dave, and Tom. Below is a breakdown of just how talented and prolific Betsy is, but take a listen to her podcast. It was a blast diving in to process and the overall creative approach to bringing a project to life.

Betsy Franco has over eighty published titles to her credit, including her YA novel, Metamorphosis, Junior Year (Candlewick) which was the basis for a sold-out play. Betsy is also the author of Parenting Magazine Book Pick Birdsongs; the Children's Book of the Month Club selection Mathematickles!; and You Hear Me? poems and writings by teenage boys, an ALA Best Book for Young Adults. She has received starred reviews from Publishers Weekly and School Library Journal. Her latest novel Naked, a YA crossover, has been optioned by Todd Traina Productions/Red Rover Films.
