The Night She Disappeared has been optioned for film!

I'm so excited to announce that I've just signed a contract for the film option of The Night She Disappeared, my latest young adult thriller, which came out March 13.

Unknown

Maggie Field of Maggie Field Literary Consulting discovered The Night She Disappeared while searching for new novels with film potential. She alerted a production company called Tempest, which has now purchased the option.

So what is a film option? Basically, it is the rental of movie rights for a book. For however long the option specifies (say a year) , the purchasers hold the film rights while they create a screenplay and see if they can gain interest in funding the film. If they do, then they buy the film rights outright. Otherwise, when the option runs out, the rights revert back to the author, who then is free to repeat the process.

About The Night She Disappeared
Gabie drives a Mini Cooper. She also works part time as a delivery girl at Pete's Pizza. One night, Kayla - another delivery girl - goes missing. To her horror, Gabie learns that the person who called in the fake pizza order had asked if the girl in the Mini Cooper was working that night. Was Kayla's fate really meant for Gabie? She becomes obsessed with finding Kayla. Gabie teams up with Drew, who also works at Pete's. Together, they set out to prove that Kayla isn't dead-and to find her before she is.
