    "Arizona’s best."
    In 1876, a spoiled, rich kid escapes a Boston boarding school, heads west where renegade Indian bands cling to a disappearing way of life, and hooks up with a black cavalry soldier determined to turn him into a man -- if he can keep him alive long enough. This script was a semifinalist in the Nicholl competition, the “Academy awards for amateur screenwriters,” and also was judged the best script suitable for filming in Arizona.

    imageABOUT THE AUTHORJohn Sharpe, a former California advertising executive now residing in Virginia, has been knocking for years on Hollywood’s door. Sometimes they open the door, invite him inside, and then slam the door on his foot. He has 11 unsold scripts.
    NOTE: Non-graphic violence, but no sex, nudity or foul language. Soldiers, Indians and settlers are killed in combat, and there is a knife fight in which no one is seriously injured. Suitable for older kids.

    A great story for the whole family, laced with action and suspense, all told without gratuitous violence or bad language and with high moral principles. A rarity in today’s films. I would love to see it produced.

    Avalon Books, which already turned John Sharpe's script One Step from Hell into a novel, is now publishing Hobbs and the Kid. Due out in late 2011.
