Harlan Coben Will Write YA Series

cobenphoto.pngBestselling author Harlan Coben inked a three-book deal for a young adult series with the Penguin Young Readers Group, telling the story of a teenager investigating “a conspiracy that may reach deep into his family history.”

In a metafictional twist, the novelist’s first young adult series will feature appearances by two different characters from adult books by Coben (pictured, via Frank Ward)–Myron Bolitar and Win Lockwood. The three book deal was negotiated by Lisa Erbach Vance of the Aaron Priest Literary Agency. The first book will be published in 2011. Coben’s publishing footprint is already immense with 19 books and 47 million books in print around the world.

Young Readers president Don Weisberg had this comment: “I have been a fan of Harlan Coben’s since his first Myron Bolitar novel Deal Breaker was published in 1995. He is a master at creating complex, layered, fast-paced capers and we know teens are going to love his new series.”
