Pendleton’s multiple careers set him up for great storytelling, and one of which got his foot in the door of the movie industry. Dino DeLaurentiis set-up house with his studio in Wilmington, and through a chance meeting with an Art Director on a film being made there, Pendelton was hired to help with the production side of the movie. This led to a twenty-five year career making movies including Coming To America, Last of the Mohicans, Blue Velvet and Billy Bathgate.
His autobiography Sea of Greed, which was written for North Carolina Court of Appeals Judge Doug McCullough, sold well and the movie rights to it have been purchased. His other autobiography, The Devil, Me, and Jerry Lee got great reviews from all over the world and was the basis for a play in West End, London. That book was also credited for the resurrection of Linda Gail Lewis’s career and led to her double platinum album with rocker, Van Morrison of Brown Eyed Girl.
Pendleton’s multi-book deal with Deer Hawk will have releases starting with Treasure, The Sea Les Traveled, The Sea(Quel) Les Traveled, Widow Walk, Pride and Privilege, Disintegration
