Alexander McCall Smith has written a prequel to his successful Mma Ramotswe series. Entitled Precious and the Puggies it tells the story as Mma Ramotswe as she undertakes her first case as a child. However, it will be at least a year before it will be available in English, as the prequel has been written in the Scots language. More information can be found here.
Depending on which fan you talk to it may or may not be good news that Katherine Heigel has signed up to play the lead character in Janet Evanovich’s widely successful Stephanie Plum series. Her devoted and loyal fans have their own views on whom they consider the best actress to play Stephanie Plum.
More information about the latest news on the Stephanie Plum film which will be “One for the Money” (the first book in the series) can be found here. Personally I would like to see Queen Latifah play Lula!
