Last May I flew out to New York to join a top secret project which I’m finally allowed to talk about: a serialized Jessica Jones novel and audiobook. You can preorder the first season for reading and listening on Serial Box, and you can read a sneak peek here.

Over three days, locked in a room with an incredible team of writers, Else Sjunneson, Zoe Quinn, Vita Ayala, we broke down the story with Serial Box’s Julian Yap guiding the process.

We came up with a twisted case that starts with a missing teenager with powers and brings Jessica up against an ancient magic. I don’t want to say too much about the plot, because you should read it.

But it was so fun being in the writers room with these brilliant people and having the wonderful Sam Beckbessinger come on board afterwards.

I love collaborating, especially in a room with such great chemistry. When it works, it’s fictional acrobatics, everybody working together, springboarding off each other, throwing you up higher, catching you when you fall. Other minds are magic.

Marvel’s Jessica Jones: Playing with Fire will be available exclusively on Serial Box this May.
