Amsterdam Film Festival award

For 100 år siden blev de stolte ørne fordrevet fra deres hjem, Dazzleøen.

"Dazzleørnene er både en rørende kærlighedshistorie og en bidende politisk allegori a la La Fontaine og George Orwells Kammerat Napoleon."

Eagles return to find civilization facing extinction...

"Today birds are calling on humans to cooperate to save our planet, and so save humankind from extinction."

En psykopatisk billionær der bliver statsminister i Danmark har planer om at tage magten i hele Europa...

“Denne bog har alting. Humor, politiske intriger, høje idealer, lav moral, spænding og romantik. Det er fremragende parodi på det politisk system og kapitalismen der er gået amok. Man griner højt, så sjov er bogen undertiden, men mens man griner bemærker man samtidig de alvorlige undertoner… (Hans Christiania) giver håb om at der måske findes en bedre måde et sted derude.”
-Tara Fitzgerald, Irland

Young activists battle a sex-mad tyrant to save their freaky freetown...

"This book has everything. Humour, Political intrigue, romance, high ideals, low morals, tension and romance. It's an excellent parody of a political system and capitalism gone mad. Laugh out loud funny at times but even as you laugh, you see the serious undertones... (Hans Christiania) gives you hope that there might be something better out there"
-Tara Fitzgerald, Ireland

Declan White’s HAIRS screenplay won first prize at the 2017 Amsterdam Film Festival.

“The contest received a wide variety of submissions representing top storytellers from over 20 countries around the world. “The quality of the work that we had the honor of reviewing was simply astounding. “Judging from among this exceptionally high caliber of filmmaking talent proved to be extremely difficult as there were so many unique, well-made and worthy projects. “After several months of careful consideration, we present the very best of the 2017 competition.
The Meters Film Festival in April 2017 in New York State, USA, awarded Declan White’s HAIRS the Best Screenplay. The audience voted on a favourite movie, and film directors, producers, and critics from all over the world were members of the jury that selected Irish journalist Declan White’s horror thriller screenplay as the winner.
HAIRS reveals how military, mafia, politicians and big-pharma are pushing a fiendish GMO concoction on the American public, resulting in a scary hairy disease that attacks humanity… until… a woman steps in to save the world.
HAIRS has been described as a unique screenplay by the Crime/Mystery Film Festival in the U.S.A: “This is a very unique story and it's packed with actions and conflicts. Your characters all have clear goals. The exaggerated, unrealistic, and cartoony characters in your script are a lot of fun.”
Declan White's screenplay HAIRS is gripping horror, “a thriller that will literally make a viewer’s skin crawl!”, says the Thriller/Suspense Festival in the USA. “A tense and gripping piece that moves quickly and has excellent pacing.... it tingles with actions and actually makes your skin crawl with how distressing certain areas are... In regards to gripping horror, you will certainly find an audience… You have a knack for creepy storytelling, you can literally make the reader/viewer ITCH in sympathy with the characters… You write flawed dangerous anti-heroes well… You know how to build tension.”
Hans Christiania gave me a new perspective on the place, and my living here in the back of the free town has really been cool...Yes John Life after finishing your book, I can see what I suspected is true… It is a hell of a book… Really positive… Man, I really think it is good… what can I say… You got any more books?
─ Robert Benson Willey
"This is not my typical read, but I must say you managed to hook me with your amazing style. Your well-paced dialogue is the highlight of this piece; it's snappy and peppy and so well done. I love the musical feel of the dialogue... This is really great writing and technique"
─ Faith Rose, on "Hans Christiania"
"Bravo! I commend you for your writing. I like this very much and place it in a position of honor on my bookshelf"
"This book has everything. Humour, Political intrigue, romance, high ideals, low morals, tension and romance. It's an excellent parody of a political system and capitalism gone mad. Laugh out loud funny at times but even as you laugh, you see the serious undertones. Brilliant!
"
─ Tara Finnegan, on "Hans Christiania"
“This is a one off and timely - perfect material for a film or TV series. This ‘pot blockbuster’ has a target market - anyone with an interest in legalising marijuana... This book without question could be turned into a great film so I hope the authors have a screenplay up their sleeves!"
"Dazzle Eagles reminded me of Animal Farm in its use of prolonged metaphor... A fascinating and timely allegory, and well told. John Life is a name I’ll be looking out for. I love books whose surface simplicity disguises profound depth."
─ Paul Williams

Dazzleørnene er både en rørende kærlighedshistorie og en bidende politisk allegori a la La Fontaine og George Orwells Kammerat Napoleon. Gennem ørnene og fuglenes blik viser romanen, hvordan menneskets egoistiske og økonomisk styrede opførelse skader andre levende væsner og ødelægger verden, som vi kender den. En ægte ”cli-fi”-roman for både unge og voksne, som sætter klimaforandringerne til debat på en utraditionel og medrivende måde.

"Dazzle Eagles reminded me of Animal Farm in its use of prolonged metaphor, but where the pigs offered a new take on the class struggle, the eagles & their avian cohort help us to understand the absurdity & ultimate futility of the War on Nature... The tale is wrapped up in the most poignant of love stories... A fascinating & timely allegory, well told. John Life is a name I’ll be looking out for. I love books whose surface simplicity disguises profound depth." - Paul Williams
