Dear Agent for a Day:
I am seeking representation for my middle-grade historical fantasy THE LION’S MANE, centred around the time of the Roman invasion of Britain.
THE LION’S MANE features 12-year-old Austin and a magical cat named Kedi.
His parents rent a villa in Turkey for the entire summer and Austin gets set for the most boring vacation of his life, away from all his friends in England. But that’s before he rescues a talking cat, witnesses a bloody ritual that causes two people to disappear, and suddenly finds himself whisked back in time. In Ephesus, nearly 2000 years in the past, he makes a new friend, falls in love – and finds an enemy. Evil forces are at work, doing their best to prevent Claudius the Emperor’s invasion of Britain, and Austin has to act fast to figure out how to influence the Emperor and ensure that the invasion does take place. It’s either that, or time and civilization as he knows it will never be the same.
THE LION’S MANE focuses on the themes of friendship and loyalty, as well as exploring the ideas of time travel and the day-to-day decisions we make, for good or bad, that can have far-reaching consequences. This story will appeal most to those readers who enjoy delving into worlds where young heroes fight for the triumph of good over bad.
Please let me know if you would be interested in seeing THE LION’S MANE. Thank you for your time.
