    Writer Tom Turtle refused to attend

    Have I made any mistakes?

    Writer Tom Turtle refused to attend the premiere of the film made after his novel, because he claimed that the director had misinterpreted the novel and had made the film that had nothing to do with the book. It made him sick to see that the blind pursue for profit was destroying literature and art.

    If it is going to be phrased in that fashion, I would say:

    Author Tom Turtle ....

    However, you need neither one. That is because it says:
    .
    Tom Turtle refused to attend the premiere of the film based on his novel ....

    How about wilfully misinterpreted to twist the knife a bit?
