As I talked about this with my daughter a couple of months ago, a crazy idea for a book emerged.
What if there was a Zombie Princess? What if the story of Sleeping Beauty was utterly modernized?
This is a world where kissing the Princess is no easy matter. What caused her to be a Zombie? What terrible reason would cause a boy to kiss a zombie? An enthralling world has emerged for me around these questions. Castles with a past; Russian Oligarchs who ignore their son; Mystery Guardians; Mystery Seekers; A clash between the human spirit and the mind; Dreams that are real; Eternal Dogs and Horses; Swords and Glocks; Magic that could be real; Honour and Betrayal; Courage and Sacrifice; History and Today; Time as a window.
In spite of my work and other commitments I find myself 15,000 words into this now and hope by the end of the summer to have a short book finished. I just cannot stop. It is pouring out of me. A 3 part series is emerging from the story too.
