d'Agnannda, read my instructions, then delivered the most creative design. I loved the early sketches outlining where each element fit in the story. Wonderful job. Thank You d'Agnannda
Donna was wonderfully insightful, understanding what I was looking for immediately. And she was so patient -- reworking the design a number of times until we were both thrilled with it. I highly recommend her services!

The story is set
in 988 AD in a wealthy Viking village on the banks of a majestic fjord from where
drakkars regularly sail on the rampage to England. The
main character in the book is Ulf, a thirteen year old boy who does not know
that Thor, god of thunder and lightning, is his father. Ulf is drop dead gorgeous, strong,
smart and brave. In short, he
has all the qualities to be a hero. Ulf
is given a sword on which his name is
carved in rune signs (Ulf Thorsson = Ulf, son of Thor). In the book, Ulf is confronted
with two major challenges. On
the one hand, there is his grandfather who wants to die in an honorable fight so
Odin will welcome him in Walhalla. On
the other hand, there is the slave girl Gwen with whom he falls in love.
