Nick Cutter is the pseudonym for an established author, and his first novel (under Nick Cutter), is The Troop. He originally wanted to be called Lemondrop Pennyfeather, but that didn’t quite work out.
Nick stopped by to talk about The Troop, and more!
Kristin Centorcelli: Congratulations on your new novel, THE TROOP! It’s gotten lots of great buzz (from Stephen King, no less!). Will you tell us a bit about it?
NC: Well, sure. It’s a pretty simple story. Five Boy Scouts and their troop leader find themselves quarantined on an isolated, un-populated island off the coast of Prince Edward Island, in Canada. It’s their misfortune that some rather nasty critters are sharing the island with them, which makes things rather miserable for the boys.
