This story idea was conceived with two words. Snow. Pirates. Since then, it’s grown a bit, with magical shadows, talking animals, ghosts of sorts, and lots of snow.
It takes place sometime in the 1800s when two kids, (Whisper and Peter), are taken to Siberia and thrown in prison for a wrong they didn’t commit. As they live there days in the cells, they are growing noticeably more and more delusional. This delusion leads them to the Rockhollow Sea, where the Snow Pirates live. And to get back to reality, they must go on a dangerous quest of some sort. I haven’t thought too much farther ahead. But I’m really excited about this one. Plus I’ll be in my element…snow! 😛
