Peter Facinelli - Twilight Star Developing Young Adult Novel Series

Actor Peter Facinelli is hoping his Twilight fans follow him into the literary world as he prepares to launch his first young adult novel After The Red Rain.

The movie star, who portrayed vampire patriarch Dr. Carlisle Cullen in the Twilight films, has teamed up with authors Rob DeFranco and Barry Lyga to develop his first novel, featuring a hero named Rose.

He tells Ew.com, "I love storytelling. Being an actor is a form of telling stories through characters. As a writer I get the opportunity to create the entire world that all the characters live in as opposed to focusing on one character or one part of the story. I enjoy being able to create and manipulate characters and events in order to tell a whole story.

"I have written two film scripts, but I have not tackled a novel before... (and) the task of writing a novel was overwhelming at first, and I am happy that I get to collaborate with Barry Lyga and Rob DeFranco. It makes the process less daunting when you get to bounce ideas off of others you respect, and Rob and I both feel very fortunate to work alongside Barry, who has experience in this form of storytelling."

Facinelli is hoping After the Red Rain will become a trilogy after the first book is published in 2015, and he admits his kids like what they're reading so far: "I do have my own Ya (young adult) test group at home. I've read some sample chapters to my 10-year-old and 16-year-old daughters (and) so far I'm getting thumbs up."
