"The Portable Door" was released in 2003 and is the first book in Holt's J.W. Wells & Co series that includes six other novels.

Both Neill and Waltz have been very busy lately. Neill is set to star in "Thor: Love and Thunder" and "Jurassic World: Dominion", while Waltz will appear in  "The French Dispatch", James Bond's latest installment "No Time to Die", and a new version of "Pinocchio".
