LOOKMAN published three books in 2008, ‘Children from the Sea’, ‘Henri and the Alien’ and ‘Mihte’s Quest’. He is also a multi-awarded screenwriter and film producer.

Now LOOKMAN will be returning to print as he builds transmedia brands. First will be three Young Adult fantasy eBooks in the Mihte Lugh series. The series is drawn from original Celtic texts and incorporates modern archaeologal research. It recreates the world of the world's first superhero, the boy Lugh, which means ‘shining’. In Malory’s Morte d’Arthur we see the same story told poorly and from the wrong perspective. It was not set in Dark Age England - but is set in the Heroic Age in excess of 6,000 years ago. The new version of ‘Mihte’s Quest: Kids in the Underworld’ has be

Carole You do sound busy with all the work you have on. "Children of the Sea" looks like fun. I wish you well with your film developments
Welcome to my list of friends.

As for reading and writing my preferred genre is crime fiction. If you'd like to see more of this author, pop into my web here: http://casutton.tripod.com/cazutt where you can see free chapters to my books and meet my fin, fur and feathered friends.

We are trying to get "Children from the Sea" into the film development stage. I will resume after I get back from Kidscreen Summit 2012 in New York. That is where my book "Henri and the Alien" is being transformed into a Kids TV animation "Who is Henrietta?" I must get things moving before October when I hope to release another Kids TV animation called "Mihte Lugh the Shinning One."

Lookman Lookman It is a bit dark for afternoon here. I am determined to publish another book soon, but book to film and book to TV shows take the priority.

Ronyell Thanks for joining the club!!! I hope we get to talk more about Nickelodeon in the club!!

And good luck on your film!!!

Ronyell Hmmm...Children from the Sea sounds like a really great film! I like reading up on forgotten truths too and I also love movies that attracts anyone! I also love watching stuff about the Renaissance, so this definitely sounds like an interesting film!

Oh and I asked that Nickelodeon question because I have a fan club on Goodreads for fans who grew up on Nickelodeon during the 80s, 90s and early 2000s and I wanted to invite you to this club so that you can talk about your favorite Nickelodeon shows growing up. The club is also doing a discussion in August about one Nicktoon and Live Action Show that everyone is voting for and I like to hear what live action show and nicktoon you want to discuss in August. Just to the polls section on the right. Just go to:

Lookman Lookman Children from the Sea is both of interest to English and Hispanic audiences. Although a modern mystery set on the beach it has links back to the end of the Kingdom of Andalusia which sparked the Renaissance. It seams funny at that time the educated language was Andalusian Arabic. Every scientist or thinker including Nostradamus had to read it. You can see I like to dig up old and forgotten truths.
Nickelodeon was inly available for me on Satellite from the 1990's.
