Novelist, journalist, and TV producer Lisa Gabriele will see her best-selling 2002 novel Tempting Faith DiNapoli adapted into a TV drama helmed by CBC and Toronto’s Insight Productions.

The story follows a young woman’s coming of age as she struggles to make more of herself than her dysfunctional, broke familial beginnings in Windsor, Ontario.

Gabriele made headlines in 2013 when she was revealed as the pseudonymous author behind the erotic novel S.E.C.R.E.T. She will co-write and co-produce the show with Being Erica writer Shelley Scarrow.
