SHE may be soft at heart, but best-selling author Cecelia Ahern means business when it comes to seeing how her “babies” — or her novels — are adapted for the big screen.

She is set to see a further two books brought to life in front of the cameras, |with The Book of Tomorrow and Thanks for the Memories being made into two TV series for audiences in the UK and US.

And Cecelia told the Herald that while she doesn't mind some changes, she's protective of her storylines.

exciting

“My novels are my babies, that's what I do,” she added. “But I always feel that apart from it being really exciting to turn them into films or TV series, it's another way to reach a wider audience.”

Cecelia was at Clerys in Dublin yesterday to mark 10 years since her debut novel, PS I Love You, which was made into a movie starring Hilary Swank and Gerard Butler, hit the shelves.
