— Appears in: Australian Author , April vol. 45 no. 1 2013; (p. 26-29)
'When the film producer calls, asking to option your book, many authors feel a shiver of excitement. Five or even ten years later, many of them are still waiting. The process of adaptation can be even more tortuous than writing a book in the first place as prominent authors tell Anneli Knight.'
