The Otherside Series has a Film Option Agreement!

I may be in Paris, but things keep happening in the US while I’m gone! After months and months of negotiation, I’m so excited to announce that The Otherside Series, my young adult science fiction romance series, has a film rights agreement! Lyrical Moon Productions has obtained the film option rights to HERE and THERE!!!
