The MIDNIGHTERS Trilogy (THE SECRET HOUR, TOUCHING DARKNESS, and BLUE NOON) was originally published in 2004, and tells the story of a teenage girl, Jessica Day, who discovers she's a rarity, a "Midnighter." Aka, an individual cabable of accessing the 25th hour of the day, or, "Blue Time."
Schwartz and Savage are credited with the creation of four series on The CW: the final season of GOSSIP GIRL, HART OF DIXIE, and the new series, THE CARRIE DIARIES and CULT.
