We experienced Ms. Wright as a lovely, intelligent, down-to-earth fellow New Yawker (as she writes in her 1st post on her blog Wrighting Revolution) who gave generously of her time to chat with us for nearly two hours about everything from her character on True Blood to pop culture from an actress, author & screenwriter's point of view to fur babies, and so much in between!
And (bonus) when she came back to the cafe where we met to give both Rebecca & I copies of her novel upon which the film is based...
...we had the chance to meet Ms. Wright's two cutie-babies...one of whom is pictured with her on the back cover of Butterfly Rising (see below)!

Rebecca and I both look forward to reading Butterfly Rising and discussing it with Ms. Wright; we also eagerly anticipate seeing the film when it premieres in New York, hopefully this fall. We'll let you know as this moves forward.
And of course we'll be back with a full write-up on our get-together with Tanya this past Tuesday; for now we wanted to thank Ms. Wright again for taking time out of her busy life to meet with us and for her candor and genuine interest in what we're doing here at the PPT.
Tanya, we wish you the very best of luck with the premiere of Butterfly Rising in Seattle!
More on our meeting with Ms. Wright to come soon...
