Meg at the Movies!

Our featured author this month has lots of film and television deals in the works (good news for us--more Meg!).

We knew that the title we're talking about in the rgz forum, How to Be Popular, is at MTV.

According to Publisher's Weekly, producers Joan Singleton (Because of Winn-Dixie) and Harry Winer (House Arrest) just secured film rights to Meg's All-American Girl series (American Girl and Ready or Not).

In addition, per PW, "Avalon High is at the Disney Channel; The Mediator is with producer Julia Pistor; The Heather Wells Mysteries is at ABC Family, as is Jinx; and The Queen of Babble is with producer Jeff Sharp of Sharp Independent."

Very cool!
