Here she dreamcasts an adaptation of The Boy Who Could See Demons:
There’s been some interest in making the film of The Boy Who Could See Demons and as a former filmmaker, I would just love to see it happen. I see all my books as films.Learn more about the book and author at Carolyn Jess-Cooke's website and blog, and follow her on Twitter and Facebook.
For Anya, I think it’s a toss up between Carrie-Anne Moss (yep, from The Matrix) or Jennifer Connelly. For Alex, Asa Butterfield (of Hugo and The Boy in the Striped Pajamas fame) has my vote, though he’s already 16… (come on Hollywood, get cracking!) For me, Michael was always Sean Bean. For Alex’s Auntie Bev, Amy Poehler. For Cindy – she’s a tough one – Niamh McGrady, a Northern Irish actress. For Alex’s father, Cillian Murphy.
