Dreaming Again

…….. Then something black flew out of the mist and smashed against the glass, shattering it and showering her with cutting fragments.  She screamed.

Movie Deal for Greylands

AGE greylands

Isobelles novel Greylands is being made into a film!

Greylands is the haunting and exquisitely rendered story of Jack and his little sister, Ellen, as they struggle to cope with their father’s despair in the bleak time after their mother’s death. One night Jack enters the greylands – a world where there is no colour, no noise, no laughter – a place that only the wounded can enter.

Isobelle is also writing the screenplay for Greylands.
