Join us on Tuesday in the Facebook DIVA Community to hear all about Jade Winters’ latest project
BY DIVA STAFF
Following the success of The Riley Interviews during lockdown number one, DIVA has now launched The DIVA Interviews – a space for weekly exclusive chats with some our lovely friends and supporters.
Next up in the series, on Tuesday 9 February, our interviewer Char Bailey will be joined by Jade Winters, a full-time author who has published several novels in the lesbian fiction genre as well as a number of short stories.
Since childhood, Jade’s ambition was to have her stories reach the big screen. Aged eight, she used her pocket money to send her scripts to any producer she could find in the Yellow Pages. Although she had no luck, Jade did receive one reply in which she was told to never give up. The desire has stayed with her ever since.
To date, she has written thirty novels. In 2017 her novel Lost in You was shortlisted for the Amazon Kindle Storyteller Award. An award that spanned all genres and had thousands of entries.
After adapting two of her short stories into screenplays which were then made into short films, Jade decided to direct the next screenplay she penned – In Her Place. Building on that positive experience, Jade went on to write and direct a further six short films and also made her directorial feature film debut with an adaptation of her bestselling novel 143.
Join us in the Facebook DIVA Community every Tuesday at 8pm for LGBTQI life chats and the chance to fire your questions at our iconic interviewees. Grab a cup of tea and settle in for exciting chats and plenty of laughs.
Launched as a way of bringing the lez/bi community closer together with everything that’s happening in the world right now, the Facebook-based, digital hangout DIVA Community has grown to a membership of over 9,000 women, non-binary people and allies, hailing from all around the globe. Pretty impressive, eh? So we thought it’s time to give back to you wonderful lot.
