Kate Kelly’s “Red Rock” Sold

Congratulations to Kate Kelly! Her début sci-fi novel for children 10 and up, Red Rock, will be published by Curious Fox in 2013.

Ms. Kelly is represented by the Greenhouse Literary Agency. Here’s what they say about the novel:

The world is changing. The ice is melting. But as the icecaps retreat secrets are revealed, ancient ruins that have remained hidden for a hundred thousand years.
A civilisation that wasn’t human…

Fourteen year old Danni’s astronaut aunt is murdered, shot down by a sniper right in front of her eyes. As she dies she presses something into Danni’s hand and whispers: Tell no-one.

Suddenly Danni is the one in danger.  The evil Morgan Pew and his organisation EMMA, The European Mars Mission Agency, will stop at nothing to get their hands on what Danni now wears around her neck. When Danni’s uncle goes missing, it has to be Morgan Pew who’s responsible.

What powers does the artefact possess? And why does Pew want it so badly? To find the answers, and her uncle, Danni must brave flooded cities, marauding bands of scavengers, and travel across a Europe changed by the rising seas.
