Thank you for coming into my school today. I really enjoyed your talk. My school is Applemore College. Hope you enjoyed Harry Potter! Did you enjoy coming into my school? How many schools do you go to in a month?

William Nicholson responded:

I loved coming to your school. I do about one school talk a month. And the last Harry Potter film was excellent. What a journey it's been!

Do you enjoy going into schools and talking about your books?

William Nicholson responded:

I do enjoy it. I find it quite tiring too, because I get all enthusiastic as I talk. But it's great to meet people who either do read my books, or might in the future. I like the direct connection.

Hi William, Im reading All the Hopeful Lovers at the moment. As a 29 yr old woman from Brighton I find it touches upon most of the big questions im struggling with at the moment. What great insights you offer...and the tip about masters and servants is so simple but so genious, im going to apply it right away in my modelling career ;). Thanks for writing, xRenske

William Nicholson responded:

I so love it when readers tell me what I write makes a connection with their own lives. That's almost what I do it for. I know it's what I read for, when I read fiction. It's all made up, but the hope is it's all also true. Thank you.

I heard you are writing the script for the upcoming musical adaptation of Les Miserables! I am absurdly excited, as I've loved your writing for a long time - including your plays and films - and Les Miserables is one of my all-time favorite stories. Just was curious how you become attached to the project and what you're looking forward to most about adapting it.

William Nicholson responded:

I am doing the screenplay for the film version of the musical, yes. It will still be the musical its fans, and I, love - but even better, we hope. The film company involved is Working Title, who know me well, and asked me to do the job. What am I looking forward to? Clarifying and enhancing the motivations of the main characters, making the plot work more simply and powerfully, and creating a result that equals or surpasses the impact of the stage show without anyone really noticing that anything has been changed.

Without giving too much away I have an amazing life story todate! It has included over 50years of lies, deceit, death and reunion and in the last few weeks I have been able to tie up all the outstanding strands. I keep being told "You must write a book!!" and latery "what about a film?" I only live in Lewes and was wondering if I could possibly come and see you to discuss this? If you'd like to e-mail me I can give you my contact details, I'd be delighted to drive to you or meet up in Lewes maybe? I look forward to your reply with eager anticipation!!

William Nicholson responded:

I'm sure your friends are right, and you should write a book. But I'm afraid I'm no use to you: My books all come from my own invention; my film work I do when a film company approaches me and I think it looks like it has a chance of being made; and right now I'm fully booked up. But why not write it yourself? Yours would be the true voice.
