Part #3 of our chat with @danacorbitnussio LUV: Your novella CHILD IN A MANGER became a Brain Power Studio movie Baby in a Manger. Can you tell us about the experience? Dana: When I received the email saying that Brain Power Studio would be adapting my novella, “Child in a Manger,” for a TV movie, I dropped the shovel I was holding in the snow and called out some gleeful words that I can’t repeat here. A movie! That was a bucket-list item for me. I’d always believed that this story, originally published in 2004, should have been a movie, too, so it was a dream come true. I couldn’t have been more thrilled with the way that Brain Power and actors Monica Knox, Michael Morrone and Caylin Turner brought this story to the small screen. Though the writers and producers put their own spin on the story to bring it to television, I was so happy that the warmth and community in my original novella rang through.
