The old and the new

It’s been a while since I’ve shared any book news, but things have been rumbling on in the background. Knight Hall, the agency that handles film and TV rights for my books, has been working hard to let producers see the potential in dramatising ‘Bedpans & Bobby Socks’ and ‘Is the Vicar in, Pet?’, and indeed, we have sold the film/TV ‘option’ for the former to the talented Esther Douglas of Fiesta Productions. For those not familiar with the term, this means that Esther has the rights to the book for a certain period of time, but it is not a guarantee that anything will happen. Esther has excellent contacts in the USA and is particularly keen on turning ‘Bedpans’ into a TV series. You will certainly read about it here if anything comes of it!

In the meantime, I’m pleased to announce that I’m about to start a new book, this time about Gwenda’s evacuation to the Lake District as a young girl. Provisionally entitled ‘When the War Is Over’, it tells of her arrival at the home of the village schoolmaster and his wife in Bampton, near Penrith, with her older brother, Doug, in the summer of 1940 and of their adventures during their three-year stay.

Honestly, she’s going to be the most documented woman in north-east England after this.

Great to see 'Bedpans' and 'One Girl and Her Dogs' displayed so prominently on a recent visit to Waterstones in Morpeth
