Film Rights for CATCHING JORDAN Sold!

I am so pleased and excited to announce that my lovely literary agent, Sara Megibow, and my lovely film agent, Steve Fisher, have sold movie rights to CATCHING JORDAN to Nick Wechsler Productions!

What does this mean?

Basically, Nick Wechsler has bought the permissions to produce the film, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that a movie will be made. Nick’s production company will work to bring a director, screenwriter and movie studio on board, and then a CATCHING JORDAN movie might be made!


We are very hopeful about having sold the rights, but we must keep our fingers crossed, as there is no guarantee there will be a movie.

Still, I am drinking champagne tonight!

Thank you to Nick Wechsler, Sara Megibow, Steve Fisher and Wayne Alexander for making this happen!
