Today we have the bite-sized interviews back and I’m really excited to be able to share this one. It was great to speak with Dan as it was fascinating to see the other side of novel writing, the side that many novelists maybe looks towards with a glint in their eye. Their book on the huge screen.
Dan was asked to write Big Game for middle-grade children (just below YA) from the film (starring Samuel L Jackson) and not the other way around, so it’s from a unique angle. It’s an interesting one. I’m sure you’ll agree.
Do you watch films after you have read the book? Or do you read books after you have watched the film? Or, do you leave the two entirely separate?
