Co-author of the popular YA books, Beautiful Creatures and Dangerous Creatures, Kami Garcia, is writing a book about Agent Mulder — yes, as in, The X-Files’ Agent Mulder. The book, Agent of Chaos, is set in 1979, when Fox Mulder was 17-years-old. Don’t worry, Agent Scully gets a book too, also set in 1979. Devil’s Advocate follows 15-year-old Dana Scully and is written by Jonathan Maberry, author of novels like Assassin’s Code, Dead of Night, and Patient Zero. The books are set to publish in January 2017.[image-2]

“Writing an X-Files origin story about teenage Fox Mulder is a dream come true. Even the series name (The X-Files Origins) blew my mind. The only thing that makes the project cooler is that my publisher/editor Erin Stein is at the helm, and rock star YA author Jonathan Maberry is writing the other novel, about teen Scully,” says Garcia.

Garcia and Margaret Stohl, Creatures’ co-author, helped launch YALLFest in Charleston, but their ties to the Lowcountry don’t stop there. In a 2010 article with City Paper Garcia says, “Charleston is my favorite Southern city, I’ve been there a million times. We’re captivated by the strong sense of place here.”
