Susan | 1 comments When can we look forward to your next book?

Also, has there been any interest by TV and/or film people in Major Pettigrew? I can visualize it translated to the screen and was casting in my head while reading.

Thanks for asking, Susan. I have the characters in my head for my next novel and am doing some research to make sure I get the details of their setting and their lives correct. I'm hoping a second novel won't take me five years but I have learned that you can't really put a deadline on creativity. Some books take six months and some take fifteen years.
Ah, the movies! Have you read 'Little Women' and do you remember the chapter, "Meg goes to Vanity Fair"? The slightest movie interest can be very head-turning. I'm trying not to put on too much borrowed finery, but to keep my feet on the ground and my head in my next book.
