For anything else you can email me at helen DOT dewitt AT gmx DOT net, with a few provisos.

Corona times: My mother had a medical emergency on March 13, 2020; I flew to the US on the 15th and looked after her (with a lot of help) for 14 months.  My sister and I moved her to a memory care facility in early May 2021, sold her house, disposed of the contents.  She died on August 23 after an apparently minor illness, so we had many more things to do. We’re still numb. I came back to Berlin after the memorial service in late October, and since then have been dealing with the post-Brexit bureaucratic requirements for UK citizens.  I’m just trying to hold out until I can clear some time for writing.  So I can’t give blurbs or references or interviews, I can’t read other people’s work; please don’t ask.

Your Name Here is going to be published in Autumn/Winter 2023 by Deep Vellum, so if you were thinking of asking to buy a pdf please wait and buy the book.

The film rights to The Last Samurai are under option to Tony Ganz of Wolf Productions. The current extension runs through February 7, 2023. The film rights to Lightning Rods are available; if you’re interested, Edward Orloff is the person to contact.

Readers who would like to support my work (AKA the retreating mirage that is the shiny new book) can buy me a coffee at Ko-fi.com/dewitt

Need a hi-res photo for an interview/profile/other journalism?  Aileen Son says you can use the photo below provided you give her a credit.  If you’re a publisher and want a photo for your book or catalogue, please contact her (aileenson AT gmail DOT com) to discuss a fee.

DISAMBIGUATION:

I sometimes get emails from people who have a film they would like to submit to a film festival, or some similar request that would make sense if I had anything to do with the film world (I don’t).  The person these requests are probably meant for is Helen de Witt the film curator, whose email address is helen.dewitt@hfp.org.uk.
