Excludes Automated Ghostwriter Services

Barbara's Books Go To Hollywood!

Heaven’s Mist, a searing memoir penned by Barbara E. Kompik, tracing her journey of faith as she was confronted by events leading up to the death of her son’s untimely death at 31, is being adapted for the screen. The book gives readers a no holds barred look at a woman wrestling with the meaning of God’s purpose, and reaping from it her own special mission in life. Several potential producers have expressed interest in developing the project, including HBO, Playtone (Tom Hanks’ production company), Imagine Entertainment (owned by Ron Howard), and Hallmark Channel. Screenwriter Alan Roth is handling the adaptation. “This is a story for anyone who has dwelt in the abyss, and struggled to find the strength to climb out,” he said. “It is not for the faint of heart. It is a survivor’s story.”

– Alan Roth, New York Screen Writer

“Sometimes writing a book is an act of courage. Such is the case with Heaven’s Mist, a searing memoir in journal form written by Barbara Kompik as she sits at her terminally ill son’s bedside. The author does not seek to comfort the reader that she’ll survive this tragedy. She puts the reader right inside the hospital room as she struggles to find meaning in what has happened, and a reason to continue on in her own life. It isn’t always clear that she will. Remarkably, she finds the strength to move on and in doing so embarks on a new mission in life. Much of the narrative is a primal scream for help, and when the help arrives, it is from someplace deep within herself.”

My books, Heaven’s Mist & Finding My Voices have been selected by screen writers to become films. Stay tuned!
