Film Option for BLACK OUT

I am thrilled to announce that BLACK OUT has been optioned by longtime Martin Scorsese producer Barbara De Fina, the outrageously talented writer and director Austin Chick, and Andrew Kletjian.

Austin has written, directed and produced two brilliant, quality films, XX/XY and August, both of which I loved. He also provided uncredited contributions to the script of Sidney Lumet’s Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead, one of my favorite films this year. Barbara De Fina’s resumé reads like a list of everyone’s favorite films. She has produced such blockbuster classics as Goodfellas, Casino, Cape Fear, The Age of Innocence and The Color of Money, to name just a few.

I am so excited to have these mega-talented people attached to BLACK OUT.

All the best,

    Dear Lisa,

    Your books are the best that I have read in years. I read Blackout in a day and couldn’t wait to run and get your other 2 books. i just finished Beautiful Lies. In a very personally tough year your books have given me a much needed escape.
