Memoir

Sean Daily at Hotchkiss and Associates sold dramatic rights to Sara Lunsford’s memoir SWEET HELL ON FIRE to CBS Television Studios. The subtitle of the book (which Sourcebooks published in paperback in November) is “A Memoir of the Prison I Worked In and the Prison I Lived In”; it chronicles the author’s experience as a corrections officer at a maximum security prison for men. (In its review, PW called the book “gritty” and “raw.”) Lunsford writes fiction under the pen name Saranna DeWylde, and SWEET HELL marked her first work of nonfiction. Daily did the deal on behalf of Deidre Knight of the Knight Agency.
