Candace Bushnell pens two ‘Sex and the City’ prequel novels.

‘Sex and the City’ author Candace Bushnell is currently working on a prequel to the highly success television/film franchise.


Bushnell is writing a pair of teen novels titled ‘The Carrie Diaries,’ that “takes readers back to Carrie Bradshaw’s formative years in high school, giving an inside look at Carrie’s friendships, romances and how she realized her dream of becoming a writer.


The two-book deal was negotiated by Alessandra Balzer, Co-Publisher of the Balzer & Bray imprint at HarperCollins Children’s, with Heather Schroder at ICM. The first book is scheduled for global publication in 2010.

 

“We are incredibly thrilled,” said Alessandra Balzer of Balzer & Bray. “Teenagers are rabid fans of the Sex and the City book and show. I can’t wait to see what happens when Candace turns her sharp eye for social commentary to the other competitive jungle that is high school.”
