Beyond the Book

This article relates to Seeker

Print Review

William Nicholson lives in Sussex in the South of England with his wife, Virginia, and their three children. He has written two books for adults, The Society of Others (very good IMHO) and The Trial of True Love (not so good), and The Wind Singer - a trilogy for children that received very strong reviews and won two prestigious UK Awards (the Smarties Gold Award and the Blue Peter Book of the Year 2001 - the former being a very popular chocolate candy similar to M&Ms, the latter being a very popular long-running BBC program for children).

He has also written many TV dramas, including Shadowlands (the life of CS Lewis). His adaptation of Shadowlands for the stage won the Evening Standard Best Play of 1990 and went on to a Tony-award winning run on Broadway; the film version (directed by Richard Attenborough and starring Anthony Hopkins and Debra Winger) was nominated for an Oscar.

He has recently signed a deal with Sony in Hollywood to write the scripts for the Noble Warriors trilogy, to be filmed in three parts.

Interesting link: William Nicholson's extensive website including short video clips of the author talking about his books.
