From the Author
I started corresponding with an exotic Hungarian woman in 1996, and we wrote literally hundreds (if not thousands) of emails to each other during the following three years. We collaborated on a screenplay and a book. This book.
Then Anikó flew from Budapest to L.A. for a vacation in 1999. I asked her to marry me within a couple of days. We celebrated our tenth wedding anniversary in June, 2010.
A few years later, we were watching an interview with writer/director Nora Ephron in the extras section of her "You've Got Mail" DVD. At one point, Nora says: "I think it's a real conceit of romantic comedies--certainly of this particular romantic comedy--that you would fall in love with someone entirely because of words. I think it's a fantasy that we would ever really fall in love with someone entirely because of the fact that they were a great writer."
Anikó and I looked at each other and burst out laughing.
About the Author
Anikó J. Bartos used to reside on the banks of the Danube, 9 time zones away from Alan C. Baird, the screenwriting partner she had never really met. Alan lived just a stone's throw away from Hollywood, which is very convenient until the stones are thrown back.
