Daniel Mearns-a character profile:

Daniel is an 11-year-old boy who lives with his mum Zoe and sister Rachel in a small village called Closeburn.

His father left them before he was old enough to remember him.

Daniel likes to read during boring lessons.

He and his friends are bullied at school by a boy called Mark and his gang.

Sometimes Daniel is hasty and lets anger get the better of him but he is also intelligent and curious.

One ordinary night of homework and bribes to eat cabbage turns so extraordinary it changes his life forever.

Daniel is the central figure of the Altinor trilogy. Read the beginning of his adventures in the first of the Altinor trilogy, Closeburn Crossing, which will be available to buy in autumn 2017. Stay tuned for more details!
