Extracted has been optioned for a TV series!!!

Hellloooooo you lovely super nice readers!

I don’t normally blog on a Friday night, but I just got the nod that I can share my news…which I have been sitting on now for a couple of months and busting a gut not to mention.

Extracted has been optioned for a TV series!!!!

Oh my days. How cool is that! I’m not allowed to say who has optioned it, or give any more information out, but blimey, what a thing. My first option! Break out the Earl Grey tea eh? let’s dunk some biccies and dance about to some Tiffany.

To remain grounded it is worth mentioning that lots of books get optioned by TV and movie people, but very few get made. Even super duper #1 worldwide bestselling awesome household name books have been optioned and never actually made, so it really is just a stage in a very long process. But, positive thinking and all that….and OH MY GOSH!!!! EXTRACTED HAS BEEN OPTIONED FOR A TELLY SERIES….

Righto. Thanks for letting me share that and I hope you are all super well and enjoying your weekend.

Love hugs and kisses

  1. That’s awesome mate. Huge congratulations not sure about dancing around to Tiffany bit with you on all the other celebrations.

    1. I loved the trilogy. Cried with laughter. Please God, I hope it’s Netflix. They’ll get the job done. Thank you for putting pen to paper… Infact thank you for all your novels.

  2. This trilogy of books is superb. the audio book versions were narrated to perfection and the trilogy kept me captivated until i reached the end. I think the way the character list was so small and not that expansive you could really feel the dialogue develop between them the longer the books went on which wouldn’t happen with a larger cast. If this makes it to tv i really hope they do it justice and not some teatime adventure flick.

  3. I know Just the actress for “Mother”! I sent her a link for this article! After reading all three books I know she could be the best actress for the role! Julienne Davis would be perfect!

  4. It’ll take a bit of adapting. But, you’ve written some of the most brialiant scenes I can imagine. Can’t wait to see them live!!!

  5. Hi, firstly, have listened to your trilogy on Audible and have loved your writing.

    What plans do you have to write further books, as you left it open ?

    Many thanks


  6. Great news but better news would be that you are writing some more.

    I am coming to the end of Extinct and feeling very sad that it is the end.

  7. I have NEVER in my life been so addicted to a book(s). I downloaded Extracted as my first audiobook and from there, everything else could ‘do one’ as I listened intently to Karl Prekkop narrate such a brilliantly written trilogy of excitement. I am now on book 9 of The Undead. Bloody brilliant.

    1. Please please write a book 4!
      Is Bertie alone on the island? Is Kate still a psychopath? How will Alpha escape the Germans? Where did Bravo go? I am on the edge of my seat! Love this series!

  8. Wow wow wow!!!! I echo everyone when I plead for you to write more in the series :). The characters are still with me and I am wondering what on earth they would do next…only you can save all us readers from all the characters being suspended in that moment we left left them on the last page….help us RR’re the only one who can…

  9. Fantastic news now we need the undead made into a TV series and I’m willing to play Dave in day 1 for free. I cannot move like a ballet dancer and more than likely I would end up cutting myself but I insist that I do my own stunts, failing that can we just have book 4 of the extracted series.

  10. Wow. First time I read the trilogy, I was playing the scenes out as a film/TV series in my head. It has everything to appeal to everyone it would be awsome.
    Now reading again and speculating on actors.
    I hope this happens.

    1. Just discovered the series last week and I’m on Book 3! LOVE LOVE LOVE the books! Some of my favorite fictional characters ever!
