Letter from Lisa

Hey Todd!

You and your mum are awesome! Been reading your works since I was old enough to start reading, and that’s a long time. Your mum is my hero – has been for a very long time.

I’m pleased to report that the rumors are true – The Dragonriders of Pern has been optioned by Copperheart Entertainment.” WOOO HOOOO!!! You have my vote, but only if y’all cast Christopher Eccleston as F’lar (wicked grin).

Keep up the great work!

Hi Lisa,

Thank you for the compliment!

Yep, there’s a deal in place. But don’t rush off and buy your tickets yet — there’ve been deals in the past, many of them, and they clearly haven’t panned out. We’re very pleased with Copperheart and have high hopes.

As for casting — that’s not our job. I will say that the folks at Copperheart are keeping in tight contact with us and want to make a film of which Mum will be proud but, as with any collaborative effort, there will be many people involved in the decisions regarding casting.

For myself, while I just love Christopher Eccleston in the new Dr. Who, he is not my idea of F’lar (too old). However, as I’ve just pointed out, my opinion is only that — my opinion.
