ShoulderHill Films, a subsidiary of ShoulderHill Entertainment has optioned Marley Gibson‘s Ghost Huntress. The teen supernatural thriller/romance series features 16-year old Kendall Moorehead who discovers her psychic abilities when she moves with her family to a small southern town. Together with new friends, Kendall forms a tech-savvy ghost hunting team to match wits against troubled spirits, high school and teenage boys.
The deal includes all three books currently published in the series, Ghost Huntress Book 1: The Awakening, Ghost Huntress Book 2: The Guidance and Ghost Huntress Book 3: The Reason. The Ghost Huntress series is published by Graphia Books, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt’s young adult division. ShoulderHill Films acquired the film rights from Sean Daily at Hotchkiss and Associates, on behalf of Deidre Knight at The Knight Agency.
“Marley’s series stood out to us from the very beginning,”
said Danielle Addair, President and Co-founder of ShoulderHill Entertainment.
“Gibson’s knowledge of the paranormal and teenage angst has helped her create a terrific teen adventure. The Ghost Huntress series celebrates girl power while highlighting the fact that it’s our differences which make us special. Each girl finds something in herself by being part of the ghost hunting team.”
