About the author:
Pamela S. K. Glasner is a published author of historical fiction and non-fiction, a filmmaker, a social advocate, and a contributor to the Huffington Post and a feature writer for Cabaret Scenes Magazine. She has also written several short stories.
"Last Will and Embezzlement", the critically-acclaimed documentary about the financial exploitation of the elderly and starring Hollywood icon, the late Mickey Rooney, was Ms. Glasner's debut film. Inspired by true-life events in her own family, the film premièred in Manhattan in April 2012 to a standing-room-only house.
In addition to "Last Will and Embezzlement", and "Madder Than A Full Moon Dog" (her latest film, based on Starjack Entertainment's annual music festival in Leeds, England), two more of Ms. Glasner's works are being made into films: "The Calicoon", a Hitchcock-style psychological horror/ thriller, and "Finding Emmaus", a docudrama which explores the treatment and mistreatment of the mentally ill over the course of about 350 years.
2013 also saw the release of Ms. Glasner's second book, "Silver and Gold" which was written in honor of her parents and released on what would have been her father's 93rd birthday.
Originally from New York City, born in 1953, Ms. Glasner moved to Connecticut with her family at eighteen. A Dean's List student, she graduated from Eastern Connecticut State University with a degree in English and secondary education, with concentrations in both psychology and sociology.
She attributes her love of architecture and antique restoration-two aspects of her life which are woven into the fabric of "Finding Emmaus" - to her grandfather who, after emigrating to the US from Austria in the 1920's, became an iron worker and joined the ranks of those who left their legacy in the form of New York City's incomparable skyline. But her real hero, though gone for forty years, is still her grandmother, whose strength, courage and unfailing faith taught her that "nothing and no one can keep you from your heart's desire without your permission and your cooperation."
A proud member of the Writer's Guild of America, the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films, and the Connecticut Historical Society, Glasner is also a Registered Reader at the Royal Society of London and the British Library. She resides in rural Connecticut where she continues working on several new projects, including "The Lodestarre Series".
The Lodestarre - Book One
Pamela S.K. Glasner
Kevin P. Miller, Writer/Director
Other than the very young and the very old, the most vulnerable people in our society are the mentally ill - or those who are deemed to be. After all, with a documented history of mental illness, even in face of the most deplorable abuse, who's going to listen?
And in our world, like it or not, if you have no voice, you have no power.
Finding Emmaus is a dark, fictional but historically, factually and medically accurate story which is experienced through the lives of two people who discover in adulthood that they are not mentally ill, but are in reality extraordinarily gifted.
And because of that, and because of the appalling things that happen to each of them during the time they believe themselves to be ill, they each embark on personal journeys - Frank in the 1600's and Katherine in present day - find a way to transcend time and death, actually meet each other, and then work together to save millions of others who've been ostracized from society and are being victimized because they, too, are considered to be mentally ill.
And in the process, Frank and Katherine find themselves embroiled in a real-life, multi-billion-dollar conspiracy.
