A Night School movie

There is no film deal for the Night School books yet. I’d love for it to happen but the right deal hasn’t come along. I get asked a LOT who I would want to be in such a film were it to happen.

Find out my thoughts in an interview I did with Maximum Pop.

And then watch the Night School Web Series on my YouTube channel.

The rest

I write in my home in the south of England, where I live with my husband, the filmmaker Jack Jewers, and a small, easily irritated menagerie of pets.
