Right this very minute, my character, Bailey Daley, is coming to life–how cool is that! MY BOYFRIENDS’ DOGS, a funny, romantic novel I wrote a couple of years ago, is being turned into a Hallmark movie that will air the end of this year. The movie will keep my title, my characters, and even the three dogs–Adam and Eve and Shirley. Erika Christensen plays the lead, and she’s a wonderful actress (stars on Parenthood, in the movie Traffic, and many more). I couldn’t be happier with the script, which stays close to the book (and from what I hear, that’s not always the case). AND, I get to go to Vancouver to see part of the filming! I’ll be heading there on March 24, which just happens to be my birthday. I’ll keep you posted!

      Tell them thanks, okay! I’ll be sure to let you know when it airs. I think the earliest might be August for the first showing. Please tell your MO fifth graders hi for me! D

    Congrats Dandi! By the way, was Brad Moore any part of your negotiation for this?

    Watching the movie with my wife right now. Hope you enjoy what they did with your book Dandi…we sure are enjoying the movie.

      Hope you guys enjoyed it! I love what they did with the movie. Before I wrote the YA novel, I wrote an adult novel—that’s the one that sold to Hallmark. Both are so similar to the movie–structure, names, dialog, and those amazing dogs! I’m very grateful to Marcy Gross and Ann Weston, producers who believed in the story from the start, and then to the wonderful cast, crew, absolutely everyone involved. And Hallmark–they really got behind this movie. What a wonderful experience!

    I am watching it right now. I LOVE Hallmark movies. I was curious as to where they were filming it because it looks like the house she lives in is in a little village known as Seabrook Village in Washington state. Was some of it filmed there?

    […] searched for the author’s blog (Dandi Daley Mackall) and found the post she wrote sharing how Hallmark was going to be making her movie.  That must have been so exciting […]
