Interested in what Terror at White Otter Castle is based on?
Laurel, Aster, and Beth have been best friends since grade one when they created the “triangle of power”. In September, as high school graduates, they will head off in different directions. Because Laurel fears it will be the end of their friendship, she convinces the others to join her on an end of summer trip – a nine-day canoe expedition to White Otter Castle, deep in the Northern Canadian forest. Unknown to her, the hundred-year-old log castle has a dark secret. The “triangle of power” faces the ultimate test when the dark forest holds a terror they never imagined.
This campy little novella is sure to give you a shiver and a smile.
White Otter Castle and the legends around it actually exist. I didn’t have to dig very far into reality to find the germ of my novella.
Although the amazing structure did fall into ruin for a time, The Friends of White Otter Castle raised enough money to save the log building from collapse. It has become a regular site for canoeists, snowmobilers, and hikers to visit.
