In fall 2014, P.C. and Kristin Cast toured through the United States and Canada to promote “Redeemed,” the final book in their best-selling “House of Night” series. More than 20 million “House of Night” books are in print in more than 40 countries. For more information, visit www.houseofnightseries.com and www.myhouseofnight.com.
When mother-daughter authors P.C. and Kristin Cast recently wrapped up “House of Night,” their internationally best-selling 12-book series, it was with mixed feelings.
Although their storyline ended for Zoey, the series’ young vampyre protagonist, her character might live on in at least five major motion pictures.
The Tulsa authors say they optioned “House of Night” several years ago to producer Samuel Hadida of Davis Films. His film credits include blockbusters such as “Resident Evil” and “Silent Hill.”
“We liked his vision and his enthusiasm,” says P.C., who is working closely with screenwriter Marc Haimes on outlines for the upcoming films. A production timeline has not been set.
The Casts are already planning their next collaboration, a paranormal “new adult” novel about “how technology has come between us and how people in the future will have no physical connections,” Kristin says.
But first they must finish their solo book projects.
Kristin, who also operates the “House of Night” clothing and merchandise line, will release a new adult paranormal romance this summer as the first novel in a series. P.C. is penning the first book in a trilogy — a romantic fantasy set after an apocalyptic ecological event.
Hollywood potential aside, the authors agree the end of their first and longest-standing series was emotional.
“It’s a funny feeling to let go of a character we’ve been living with for a decade,” P.C. says. “But it’s been a wonderful ending.”
