Post #1059 – 20000308

I run an animation studio in the UK. We make films and series for television, and occasionally, the cinema. We’re interested in developing a series based on one of your books. I’ve contacted the publisher, but had no reply yet. In any case, it’s only going to make sense if you are keen enough to get involved developing stories, etc.

If this is the sort of thing that might appeal to you, perhaps you could e-mail me and we can talk about how we might take it further.

I have recently become a fan, mainly because of Amazon, which allows people like me access to books that are not readily available in the UK. I cannot understand why so few of your books are published here. The British public is missing out!

Kind regards,

Robin Lyons

My mother claimed to have been born in Cardiff, Wales--but she was notably unreliable. I was there once, and didn't see anybody I recognized. Unless, of course, I have the wrong town in mind. Cardiff is on the sea, and has a big castle, right? I am all for your developing an animated series based on some book I wrote, and I will do all I can to help you, (unless, for some reason, I'm not able to).
