She has also adapted the anime series Tiger & Bunny, the YA novel The Brokenhearted, and the non-fiction book Nothing Daunted. Ken Liu’s The Hidden Girl will have Shanman focusing on a story inspired by Chinese mythos, where it’ll focus on a team of female assassins who can travel and navigate between dimensions.

Ellen Shanman is also a published author. She has written two novels, Right Before Your Eyes and Everything Nice. Shanman adapted the latter for Charlize Theron’s production company, Denver & Delilah Productions.

Ken Liu has become one of the most prominent and innovative sci-fi and fantasy writers in recent years. Ken’s debut novel, The Grace of Kings, is the first volume in a silkpunk epic fantasy series, “The Dandelion Dynasty.” It won the Locus Best First Novel Award and was a Nebula finalist. He subsequently published the second volume in the series, The Wall of Storms as well as a collection of short stories, The Paper Menagerie and Other Stories. He also wrote the Star Wars novel, The Legends of Luke Skywalker.

Shanman is repped by UTA and the law offices of Joan Vento Hall. Liu is repped by Angela Cheng Caplan at the Cheng Caplan Company and Russel Galen at the Scovil Galen Ghosh Literary Agency, Inc.
