The TV & film rights to The Stolen Child have sold!

  I’m delighted to announce that Keshet UK have bought the TV and film rights to The Stolen Child. Keshet International are the company behind Prisoners of War, which became Homeland.

She couldn’t tell how long she’d been searching for her daughter. It was dusk, but it had seemed darker as she ran through the wood, tripping on hooked tree roots, her feet crunching through crisp, curled ash leaves....         ...and ends on 9 November.
