Having just re-read Deep Secret, it's GOT to be the one! (Though I have a
suspicion that with DWJ books, whichever one you have just finished reading
would be The One. Except for Hexwood which a film wouldn't do justice to -
would have to be a TV series).
But Deep Secret feels very cinematic - the struggle to go Ayewards from
Naywards worlds, the cliff-hanging sequence at the end of Rupert's account.
I'll have to think a bit more about who I would have to act the major parts.
If it was 20 or 30 years ago I would have for Tansy-Ann Fisk the marvellous
actress who played Edith in the Archie Bunker series.
Suggestions welcome!
