Of all the compliments I have received since SHE DOWN THERE came out in print a year ago, the ones that touch me the most are when readers express how they felt transported into the ocean during the underwater scenes. Writing a novel which, through its characters, both human and non-human, takes readers into this magical realm which I love and care for so deeply, was always my intention.
Some readers have shared that the novel is cinematographic. One reader told me that the book, “Started playing like a fictionalised Jacques Cousteau movie”. So I shouldn’t have been too surprised when a respected film producer approached me in December with the view to optioning the motion picture rights to SHE DOWN THERE. We are in discussion ...
Thank you to all the readers who have taken the time to give me feedback. It’s invaluable. Paying forward I am giving away twelve signed copies of SHE DOWN THERE. See below for details.
In this newsletter there are details about where you can purchase a copy and I share the inspiration behind one of the story’s scenes. Enjoy!
