Sea Lion Books - Creative Team for P.C. Cast's Graphic Novel Announced

New York Times Bestselling Author
P.C. Cast’s
graphic novel.

ATLANTA, GA – (December 16, 2010) – Sea Lion Books is proud to announce the creative team behind P.C. Cast’s Goddess of the Rose graphic novel, part of the Goddess Summoning Series.

Award-winning New York screenwriter, Kent Dalian, has been selected as the writer for the project. Kent is no stranger to P.C.'s work, having written the screenplay for "Marked", the hugely anticipated first film adapted from P.C.'s massively successful "House of Night" series. Kent claims he has learned more about women from adapting P.C.'s work than he has in twenty five years of past relationships and is now blissfully engaged. He describes "Goddess of the Rose" as a classic love story infused with mythology and folklore, then turned completely on its head.

Alan Halpin, a much sought-after and elusive Irish artist, has been landed by P.C. to bring her wildly imaginative story to visual life. Alan has long been an icon in the world of Celtic and Gothic art as well as Irish history, myth and legend. Alan was drawn to the project because P.C.'s unique world is very fertile ground for the dark alleys and vibrant gardens of his creative mind. Goddess of the Rose is the perfect canvas for Alan's stunning talent.

We are thrilled to have the opportunity to bring P.C. Cast’s Goddess of the Rose Series to life in graphic novel form. Our partnership with the creative team of Kent Dalian and Alan Halpin is another step in the right direction for Sea Lion Books with our continued desire to bring the best of the best to the graphic novel market.
