Actress and author Carrie Hope Fletcher makes her children’s debut INTO THE SPOTLIGHT, inspired by Noel Streatfeild’s Ballet Shoes published 125 years ago and endorsed by her estate. Carrie talks with author Anna James (Pages & Co) about the original feel good novel, making dreams come true, keeping the original magic but adding a modern twist and the similarities between writing and performing before heading back to rehearsals for her role as Cinderella in the West End.
