Right from the outset, The Silence had Gurpreet sitting on the edge of her seat. Everything had her completely engrossed, from the storylines to the characters, to the structure and the way it was written. Before long she started dreaming about it, living it and breathing it until she imagined what it would look like as a feature length movie.

In 2014, Gurpreet contacted the author, Sarah Rayne, explaining how much she loved the fourth novel in the Nell West/Michael Flint series. A few days later, she was given both Sarah and her team's blessing to go ahead and adapt the book that had caused Gurpreet's imagination to go wild.

If you haven't read Sarah's novel, find a copy now! and make sure you read my interview with her here.
