La baronne des glaces

Happy to announce that the first volume of my Ice Baroness saga will be published in French on September 16th by Éditions de l’Archipel.

Russie, 1822. Élevés dans la misère, Katya et son frère Grischa, orphelins de mère, rêvent tous deux d’une vie meilleure. A 13 ans, Grischa rêve de faire fortune et de voit le monde. Il s’enfuit à Saint-Pétersbourg avec sa petite sœur âgée de 9 ans.
Pendant un voyage sur la mer Baltique jusqu’à Hambourg, ils font la connaissance de Thilo et Christian. Ensemble, ils décident de monter une société marchande, avec une idée aussi surprenante qu’audacieuse : exporter la glace du Nord vers les Tropiques.
Mais la voie du succès est semée de difficultés et d’incertitude… et les sentiments qui lient Katya à Christian, pourtant marié, menacent de précipiter la chute de ces jeunes ” barons des glaces “…

Three years ago

Three years ago today, it was so cold that ice was floating in Konstanz harbor. Rare enough around here, and also a meaningful coincidence. Because back then, I was plotting the story of my ice barons Katya, Grischa, Christian, and Thilo.

Three years later, it’s already springlike, and I’m about a month away from writing the final sentence of this saga.

My song of ice and sea, storm and fire and new horizons. And of being human in all its facets.
