The Flight Attendant landed in paperback this year and debuted as a bestseller. Stay tuned for news of the TV series starring the spectacularly talented and utterly perfect Kaley Cuoco — Penny from “The Big Bang Theory.” Yes, flight attendant Cassie Bowden is a mess and makes some terrible mistakes. But I know what a disaster her childhood was and how those scars inform her adult behavior. I think that’s why she is among my favorite of my heroines.
Wingspan, my first stage play, premiered last year in New York City. Now you can listen to an original cast recording “audiobook” (or read the script as an eBook) of the one-act production. Download them wherever you buy your audiobooks or eBooks. The cast features K.K. Glick from TV’s “Odd Mom Out” and Grace Experience — my amazing daughter who has narrated all or parts of my audiobooks since 2014. The original play was directed by Oscar winner Alexander Dinelaris (“Birdman”).
Midwives, a #1 New York Times bestseller and the novel where many of you first discovered my work, opens as a stage play at the George Street Playhouse in January 2020. I wrote the script –my first full-length play. It will be directed by Sheryl Kaller. I will be watching it come to life as early as this May, when there will be developmental readings in New York City.
