Hi Stephlynne. I'm so sorry I missed your question - my excuse is that I've been busy writing more Greenland stories.

Thank you for your kind words about Seven Graves, One Winter. I did enjoy writing that book!

It sounds like you had an amazing trip to Tunu (East Greenland). Fantastic!

To answer your question, my novel Narkotika is partly set on the east coast, as are several of my novellas. My Greenland trilogy, starting with The Ice Star, is set on both the east and west coast, but the first book is mostly on the east.

You might also want to try my novella Piteraq, set in the Northeast National Park. It's free if you sign up for my newsletter (link on my website: www.christoffer-petersen.com), and you can always unsubscribe again.

I hope that helps. Just let me know if I can answer more questions - I'll try to be much faster next time!

Gosh, I don't know how to begin... First, my condolences and second, I'm so sorry it took me two weeks to answer your question. I confess to having a tear or two here as I try to formulate a response. Writing that scene was quite emotional for me, although I am fortunate to have not experienced such a loss. Should that time come, I only hope I can be as brave as you. As for how I imagined such a scene, I am sure many couples experience the tugging of the duvet or sheets when their partner rolls over. There is something familiar, safe and often a little annoying about it. The character of Maratse loves science fiction books, and it made sense for Piitalaat - more of a smartphone girl - to put those books to good use. While I am sorry for your loss, I am simply amazed that the scene in my book should mirror your own actions and experience. I can only add that I am humbled by your comment, and hope that knowing that others think in similar ways can provide some comfort for your loss. I truly appreciate you reaching out, even though it is likely an emotional subject to talk about. Once again, please forgive my tardiness. It might be some consolation to know I was writing. Best regards. Chris(less)

New Series – Greenland Missing Persons

[image error]Greenland Missing Persons #1



I won’t hide the fact that I enjoy writing novellas. I think of them rather like episodes in a series I’d like to watch. But, after writing 20 episodes in the Constable David Maratse series of novellas, I needed a new angle.





Petra helped.





The Greenland Missing Persons series of novellas, of which The Boy with the Narwhal Tooth is the first, are inspired by t
