Jan Hurst-Nicholson (janhurst-nicholson) | 59 comments I have just uploaded my YA novel Mystery at Ocean Drive, which is set in South Africa.

Just to let you know that the book was written at the request of teachers who wanted a Hardy Boys-type adventure story for reluctant teenage boy readers. A publisher turned it down with the comment that it was 'too much like a Hardy Boys story'.
It was a runner-up in the 2010 Citizen Pan MacMillan YA novel comp, but no publishing contract, so I have published it as a Kindle.
(for some strange reason it says the primary language is Danish, when in fact it's English)
