After graduating from Florida State, Robin Swicord made her start in copywriting and playwriting. She eventually migrated west where she has since set up shop as one of Hollywood's top screenwriters. Her first big-screen adaptation was of the Louisa May Alcott novel "Little Women", which starred Winona Ryder and proved to be a big success. That was soon followed by the adapted screenplays for "The Perez Family", "Practical Magic", "Memoirs of a Geisha" and "Matilda", which she penned with husband Nick Kazan, as well as the upcoming "The Jane Austen Book Club", which she wrote and directed. In this interview, learn more as Swicord delves into the adaptations, collaborations and frustrations she's experienced as a screenwriter.
