Scales-Medeiros and duPont initially crossed paths in Detroit, MI almost 5 years ago when duPont’s film crew was at the International Auto Show shooting interviews for his film “What is the Electric Car?”. The producers interviewed Ginny in Detroit and she made the final cut of the movie. That chance encounter in a Detroit hotel elevator was documented in Ginny’s novel: “What is Normal?” which duPont’s company (Nemours Marketing, Inc.) signed a contract to take on the publishing rights. Scott duPont (President of Nemours & Publisher) was eager to partner with Ginny and move forward motivated by the lucrative potential of a movie deal for the adapted screenplay, “WIN”, and based on Ginny’s novel, “What Is Normal?”
