Nearly fainting of excitement here at Macallister HQ. Not only has The Magician's Lie been optioned for film (incredible!), it's in the hands of the amazing Jessica Chastain, who has launched her own production company, Freckle Films, widely expected to put more women both in front of and behind the camera. Can't express how honored I am to have my book become part of that venture.
Here's one of the many articles on Freckle Films. My Google Alerts went kind of nuts over this.
(The other book optioned, Life and Other Near-Death Experiences by Camille Pagan, was one of my favorite reads last year. Chastain's got fabulous taste!)
