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!

*MIGHT*

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!

Two New YA Books!

I’m thrilled to announce that Sourcebooks Fire will be publishing my next two young adult novels! I’m excited to work again with editor extraordinaire Leah Hultenschmidt. Thank you so much to my fantastic and amazing agent Sara Megibow.

So, the two new books are companions to CATCHING JORDAN. You’ll see familiar names in all three books, but there are new characters too.

The first book is currently called PLAYING PARKER, but the title will probably change. It’s about a 17-year-old girl named Parker who falls for the new 23-year-old coach of the baseball team. This book will come out in fall 2012.

The second book is called BAD, BAD THING. It’s about an 18-year-old girl named Kate who is guided by strong Christian beliefs. While Kate’s falling in love for the first time, she struggles to get over her role in helping her best friend to get an abortion. This book will be released in spring 2013.

I’m beyond excited and can’t wait to share these books with everyone. Thank you again to Sara and Leah and Sourcebooks Fire!
