YA book becoming a movie!
« on: January 31, 2014, 10:23 AM »
I'm FINALLY able to share this news... which is that Diana Lopez's beautiful young adult book, CHOKE, will air on the Lifetime network at the beginning of June... and I'm writing the screenplay!  We're shooting in Winnipeg in March (BRRR!) and I'm wildly excited.  Please tell me you'll watch it.

CONGRATULATIONS, Jen!   :fireworks

Anne, I don't have cable, either. However, there is a Lifetime app on Google Play. I'm hoping the app will carry this movie.
