There has been a lot of film interest in the series. Currently there is a great script out there, and I'm keeping my fingers crossed it lands in the right hands of a producer who will know just how to bring the story to the big screen.(less)

“When you look at what C.S. Lewis is saying, his message is so anti-life, so cruel, so unjust. The view that the Narnia books have for the material world is one of almost undisguised contempt. At one point, the old professor says, ‘It’s all in Plato’ — meaning that the physical world we see around us is the crude, shabby, imperfect, second-rate copy of something much better. I want to emphasize the simple physical truth of things, the absolute primacy of the material life, rather than the spiritual or the afterlife.

[The New York Times interview, 2000]”

Eugenia (Genie In A Book) Thanks for friending, can't wait to read your book!


Davonna Juroe Hello Megan,

Thanks for the friendship. MADMAN'S DAUGHTER looks fascinating. I love YA's that take history and blend it with a classic, especially an H.G. Wells story. Good luck to you with the recent release! Very exciting!
