A Word from the Author
I have had a number of people say to me about “Red Clover” that they would like to see it made into a movie. Some of them have even identified the actors who they think would be good in the various roles. Of course comments like this are music to an author’s ears, even if I know that the likelihood of that happening is very low. That said, Octavia Spencer would have to play Shaneta. I just wouldn’t have it any other way.
