From my Newsletter:

I’m very pleased to confirm that Warner Brothers has optioned The Dragonriders of Pern® and it is in active development.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with Hollywood, development is a very difficult process with many starts, stops, and bumps along the road.

We are all very hopeful.  Fingers crossed!

Dear Todd.

I’m at present on a train between Stockholm (Sweden) and Copenhagen (Denmark).

I just bought ‘Dragonwriter’ yesterday (Stockholm has an amazing SF bookstore), am halfway through (would have gotten further, but X-mas shopping was the actual point of my trip), and had to stop so I could write and say THANK YOU for collecting these lovely testamonies. I have loved your mother’s writing for the past 20 years or so, and I find myself falling in love with the person behind the wonderful stories. She (along with Karen Blixen/Isaak Dinesen, J.R.R. Tolkien, and C.S. Lewis) is a writer I wish I’d had a chance to meet in person – although I love meeting her in her books.

Will now go back to reading this lovely book.

Wishing you and yours a very merry Christmas, and all Things good for the New Year

Johanne Brøsted

Dear Johanne,

I suppose it’s too late to warn you: “There will be tears!”

I’m glad you’re enjoying Dragonwriter. It was a pleasure to create but I feel compelled to say that its existence owes much to the marvelous Smartpop Boooks people. It was they who first suggested it.

Happy holidays and good luck on the shopping!

I was wondering if you are planning any more books to be written regarding the Pern series. I was wondering if you were going to continue the series of Lorana & Fiona until the end of the red star passes. Also Xhinna and Bekka through the pass. Have you anything planned for the new seer Jirana during this pass.


I do indeed plan on writing more Pern books. I also intend to write more of the Third Pass. I can’t say exactly who will be followed directly but I’m sure we’ll get to learn more of our favourites (Lorana, Fiona, Xhinna, Bekka) along the way.
