Storm in the Barn MOVIE News!


I'm very happy to announce that The Storm in the Barn has been optioned for a feature film! Grady Twins Productions is developing the book for a live action movie. Marti Noxon, writer/producer of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Mad Men (two of the best shows ever), is producing and David Goodman (Fringe, Angel) is writing the screenplay. I'm involved in a sort of advisory way. Everyone at Grady Twins has been great and I'm convinced that Storm is in the right hands.

It's a long road to the silver screen, but we are certainly off to a good start.

SO fantastic and SO well deserved. I read Around the World yesterday at HHBooks and am now selling it to everyone with a 9-13 year old. It's SO good! Congratulations on all of your successes.
