Greetings! I'm a screenwriter and producer in LA and I require the assistance of an able ghost writer to "novelize" my existing screenplay. It's a straight forward horror story/rite of passage that has nods to British folk horror. It has a Pennsylvanian flavor, dealing with local folklore such as abandoned mines, ghost towns and the Amish.

My ideal length is somewhere between 50,000 and 70,000 words.

I require a writer who is not afraid of additional research beyond the script page. Experience in writing first person is also valuable, especially from a female point of view (the main protagonist is 16).

Communication will be key, as I prefer to collaborate ideas and elements with my writer. The best idea always wins. I do not need a shrinking violet who will do exactly as I say simply because I'm the "boss." In my field, stories only get better when ideas are challenged. For that reason, I prefer to deal with someone in the Los Angeles. Or Skype at least once a week. Please not...
