On a time-sensitive mission to retrieve a crashed spy satellite in Greenland, the elite Sirius Sledge Patrol’s first female patroller has to gut it out to survive the Arctic and a team of ruthless mercenaries.
When her patrol partner is killed during the mission Konstabel Fenna Brongaard tarnishes the unit’s military history as the first Sirius patroller to be investigated for murder.
Following her arrest, fog isolates the village of Ittoqqortoormiit and Fenna from the outside world. When the investigation takes a vicious turn, Fenna must trust a Greenlandic policeman if she is to clear her name, only to discover that her reputation is the least of her worries.
When a mysterious adventure cruise ship enters Greenlandic waters, Fenna discovers that alone in the world of men, if you run with dogs you have to fight like wolves.

The Ice Star is the book that launched my career. I started writing it during my Master of Arts in Professional Writing at Falmouth University. I was studying via distance learning from Greenland. I’ve studied a lot over the years, always with a career in mind, but this degree was for me, if that makes sense. What didn’t make sense was me ignoring everything the staff and students said about The Ice Star, and even ignoring the distinction I earned with it. I was done with it. So many people had commented on it, and I had revised it a gazillion times, and rewritten it from start to scratch three times – including everything from changing the main character from male to female, changing the POV from 1st to 3rd, etc.
I was done!
And I stuffed it in a drawer and wrote Steampunk adventures instead. Because they were going to sell like hot cakes!
Well, they didn’t. But it wasn’t until I quit my job and paddled down the Yukon River with Jane and friends for two months that I was ready to think about Fenna and The Ice Star again. We crossed Prince William Sound on a ferry and I had a look at The Ice Star and decided I could do something with it after all. So, I started writing on the ferry in Alaska. The rest is history, at least it is my history. I made an attempt at a cover, and launched it on Amazon in January 2017 using Jane’s last name for a pen name, and that was it. I was convinced it was going to crash like my Steampunk books did.
A year later and I had written two more books in the series, and at the end of 2017 I quit my job – another one – and figured I had savings for three months to live on. I had to write something in those three months before I had to find another job. The book I wrote was Seven Graves, One Winter, and the rest is history… again.
The Ice Star is the first book to feature Constable David Maratse and the first of my books to ever really sell.
It still sells.
