Have you ever wondered how you could turn your stenography skills into a seven-figure paycheck? One stenographer has.
Universal Pictures has optioned “From the Corner of the Oval,” a book proposal by Rebecca Dorey-Stein, a former White House stenographer. (The Hollywood Reporter)
“From the Corner of the Oval” follows a woman living in Washington D.C. who goes from serving cocktails to lobbyists to being hired as a stenographer in the Obama White House.

The Washington Post called it “West Wing” meets “The Office.” Both publications reported Dorey-Stein received a seven-figured deal for the book. That doesn’t include what the film version could earn her.
If you know Dorey-Stein, The Washington Post might like to hear from you. It reported “Unlike some cable/social media-ubiquitous Obama alums, Dorey-Stein has a low profile. Public records say she worked at the White House from 2014 to 2016, but her LinkedIn and Twitter profiles have been removed.”
