Exclusive Interview with Author Jane Green at Novelicious

Last month, Jane Green - British author of Mr Maybe, Jemima J and many, many more books - was in the UK to promote her latest offering, The Patchwork Marriage. After meeting the delightful, chatty and brilliantly funny Green at her book launch, I got to interview her about where the book came from, what she's got planned for future projects - including the return of Jemima J! - where she does her writing and just what she thinks of the 50 Shades of Grey phenomenon.

The full two-part interview is now up at Novelicious! Here's what she had to say about which of her books she'd love to see adapted for the big screen...

You've written a lot of incredibly popular books but none have been made into films. If you could have one of your books adapted, which would you love to see on the big screen?

I think it would have to be Jemima J, just because it is the most filmic and it is the fairytale. Although, there was something rather lovely about The Beach House. A group of people coming together in a house on Nantucket.

Hollywood's so peculiar though. For years, they say 'we don't do ensemble films'. Then, all of a sudden a film comes along – like The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel – and it does incredibly well and you know that they're going to be saying, 'ensemble movies – that's what we need!'

It hasn't been my time for whatever reason and hopefully it will be soon!
