Career

On her own, P.C. Cast is known for her Goddess Summoning and Partholon book series.[4] Her first book, Goddess of the Sea, was originally published in 2001, won the Prism, Holt Medallion, and Laurel Wreath awards, and was a finalist for the National Readers' Choice Award; her subsequent books have won a variety of prizes.[5]

In 2005, she and her daughter began co-writing the House of Night series.[6] In the wake of the current popularity of vampire fiction led by Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series, the Casts' books have enjoyed substantial and increasing critical and commercial success,[7][8] and in March 2009, the fifth book in their series, Hunted, opened at number one on the best-seller lists of USA Today[9] and The Wall Street Journal.[6]

According to P.C. Cast, the concept for the House of Night novels came from her agent, who suggested the theme "vampire finishing school."[10] The books take place in an alternative universe version of Tulsa, Oklahoma inhabited by both humans and "vampyres" (Cast uses this alternative spelling in the books, explaining it as a choice she made "just 'cause I like the way it looks"[11]). The protagonist, Zoey Redbird, age 16, is "marked" as a "fledgling" and moves to the "House of Night" school to undergo her transformation.[4]

In November 2008, Variety reported that producers Michael Birnbaum and Jeremiah S. Chechik had obtained an option to acquire the motion picture rights in the House of Night series.[12]

Personal information

Born in Watseka, Illinois,[13] Cast lives in Tulsa, where she taught high school English[14] and where her daughter is a student at the University of Tulsa.[4]

Cast has been married and divorced three times. In June 2010, Cast wrote about her marriages and her current personal relationship with Seoras Wallace, a Scottish historian and chieftain of Clan Wallace, whom she met while researching her novel The Avenger.[15]
