My writing is mostly for teenagers with an emphasis on modern character driven stories with a dark twist of classic adventure.
I am seeking a publisher for my first novel, Max Wax. A film adaptation is already in pre-production with a company here in Denmark.
Max Wax -------------------- Length: 35,000 words Genre: Supernatural Adventure, aimed at 10-12 yrs Status: Seeking Publisher
MAX OSGOOD is a thief. Angry that his dad died three years ago, he’s burgling apartments to take it out on the world. Desperate to stop him before the police get involved, his mum sends him to stay with his uncle on a remote island on Denmark’s West Coast.
He arrives intending to stay out of trouble. But trouble finds him when a mannequin from his uncle’s waxworks comes to life. It’s the ghost of GABRIEL CUTTER, and unless Max finds his lost diamonds the smuggler will keep haunting him as part of a curse.
By finding the gems and laying Cutter to rest, Max faces death and learns that anger isn’t the only way of dealing with the loss of his dad.
