Inspiration and Permission


Hello.  I’ve been an Alice fan since I was in the 5th grade (11 years old & I’m now 21) I was first introduced to the series when my old friend Aaliyah had read the book, and we were in the school library checking out books, and she had advised that I read ‘Alice in April,’ I did, and I fell in love with it. From then on i it into the entire series within a whole year. I think my love for teenage films and teenage culture began with the Alice series. Anyways, I want to say you are an incredible writer and your work has had an immsene impact in my life. I wanted to ask if it’s ok that if I ever come to the idea of one creating an ‘Alice’ tv show or another film about the series. I saw the 2008 film a couple of years ago, but I wasn’t so sure that it’s fit how the first couple of books should have been. I have in mind that a short lived tv show based on the entire ‘Alice’ series should be, but I wanted to ask for your permission if it would be alright? This is just a thought that I’ve had in mind for a while now, and would someday want to see it on the screen. Please reply as soon as possible. Thank you.
