Kyle’s books are perfect for adaptation – cinematic in scope, a narrative drive full of twists, turns and cliffhangers, and characters that reflect an Australian underbelly while focusing on family dynamics, at their best and worst. Kyle’s growing international profile adds a layer of worldwide interest to either a film or television adaptation.
