Terrill Lankford discusses his novel, “Earthquake Weather.” He begins by talking about the 1994 earthquake that hit Los Angeles and how disaster can bring people together. He discusses the film industry in Hollywood and how many people just want to have a producer credit on a movie. He describes how studios buy bad movie scripts just so other studios can’t make them into successful films. Lankford talks about his own career as a scriptwriter, and says that he has made 35 scripts turn into films. He shares that he is also called in to make last-minute changes on major films for studios. He ends the interview by talking about how he has been touring with author Michael Connelly and has made a documentary about his life.
