Gabriel Dylan

This event is not for the faint hearted.

Young Adult author Gabriel Dylan is also a skier, snowboarder, surfer and secondary school teacher. In fact, his inspiration for the novel Whiteout came from leading a school skiing trip in a remote part of the Austrian Alps.

In Whiteout, the main character Charlie hopes that the school ski trip will be the escape from his unhappy home life he so desperately needs. But there is something wrong with the remote ski village of Kaldgellan. Something is out there, something ancient and evil, among the pines and the deep untracked drifts, watching and waiting. And when the storms blow in, Charlie and his schoolmates wake to find the resort deserted. Cut off from the rest of the world far below, as night falls the few left alive on the snowbound mountain will wish they were somewhere, anywhere else. Only ski guide Hanna seems to know of Kaldgellan’s long-buried secrets, but whether Charlie can trust her is another question…

Whiteout is a chilling, unrelenting RED EYE horror story, which may keep you awake in your tent tonight. Come if you dare ….
