Stepsister is Being Adapted for Film

Big news! I’m so happy to announce that Stepsister, my upcoming novel about Cinderella’s ugly stepsister, is being adapted for film! I will be working with William Morris Endeavor Content to bring this tale of loss, redemption, and the true meaning of beauty to life on screen.  (Read the whole story in the Hollywood Reporter for details.)

My stories are my babies, and I’m extremely possessive and protective of them. But from our first conversation, I felt a deep connection with the amazing Endeavor Content team. They are smart, sensitive and creative, and it is clear that they get Stepsister — and they get me. I couldn’t be more thrilled to partner with them on this.

I will keep you posted as this project develops. In the meantime, I am hard at work on the book, and loving it. I’m loving getting to know a mean girl who maybe isn’t evil, who maybe regrets her behavior and wants to make amends, and who maybe deserves a shot at her own happily ever after.

Stay tuned!

    OMG! I just read the first chapter of the book and then had to search up if there will be a movie and am getting so excited! I can’t wait! I just recently started reading books and its series and this is the one of which I want its movie the most. (sorry my English skills are not the best)

    I loved the book “Stepsister!” Thank you for writing it. During the fight scene I thought to myself, “This could be a movie, it is so detailed and easy to picture.” Then I read all the notes and there is was! Congratulations and can’t wait to see the movie and read your other stories. Your fan, Barb
