Tom Ryan’s YA thriller, Keep This To Yourself, has been optioned for television! The book was optioned by Robert Munic of Pull the Pin Productions and Cheryl Bayer of Living Popups. It would be produced by Kim Yau at Paradigm on behalf of P.S. Literary Agency’s Eric Smith.

This chilling mystery is described below:

“A town ripped apart.

A message from beyond the grave.

And a chance for justice.

Last summer, a serial killer terrorized the sleepy seaside village of Camera Cove, killing four people before disappearing without a trace. Like everyone else in town, eighteen-year-old Mac Bell has been trying to move on from the tragedy—easier said than done when Mac’s best friend, golden boy Connor Williams, was the final victim. But Mac is starting to accept that he might never find closure…

Until he discovers a note that Connor left him the night he died—a note hinting he’d found out the killer’s identity and needed Mac’s help. Now, Mac’s on a mission to solve Connor’s murder once and for all. And nobody—friends, neighbors, or even the cute stranger with his own connection to the case—is beyond suspicion.

Can Mac untangle the truth before the killer strikes again?”

Though this is just the first step, we are so excited for Ryan, and hope Keep This To Yourself gets produced. We will keep you informed with any news. In the meantime, be sure to read or listen to this thrilling book!
