Hit and myth

Holding on to my hat. I've just signed a second contract! This time it's for Ice Trekker, a fantasy teen adventure set in the icy wastes of Krønagar, a mysterious uncharted land to the north.


The story was inspired by a trip to Tromso a little while back. It's quite bonkers, full of strange beasts and mystic legends, all with a definite Icelandic flavour. Not Nordic noir, but Greenland gris, perhaps.

I was asked to come up with a 20-word tagline, and all that I could think of was 'In a land of myth and a time of magic, the destiny of a great kingdom rests on the shoulders of a young man. His name? Merlin.'

It's a cracker, and once it was in my head, I knew I didn't stand a chance of thinking of anything else. So, I found myself watching the blooper reels of Arthur et al on YouTube. Never knew Anthony Head was such a giggler. Maybe something will come to me ...

Meanwhile, already pondering a sequel, with the working title of ...
Questiny. I think John Hurt could make it work.
