Rumlands – DINOTOPIA X THE EDGE CHRONICLES. In a 1930s-era world where giant mushrooms are a part of daily life and flying has been banned by a sinister ongoing military occupation, seven unconnected people from across the country find themselves drawn into the conflict… and into each other’s lives. YA, complete at 70k words and illustrated by William Reber. Currently seeking representation.
