The Power of a Pawn was originally conceived by Paul Spite as a film, based on a short story. Research and counsel led Paul to lengthen his original short story into a full-length legal thriller novel before tackling the production of the movie.
However, the dream and plan is still the same: To produce The Power of a Pawn – The Movie when the opportunity arises. To that end, we offer the first of many character descriptions that hopefully will help potential actors and actresses to understand the characters in the film.
*DISCLAIMER: This character description and others to follow are not final by any means. They represent how the characters are envisioned at this time by author Paul Spite and his team.*
