Imagine your perfect life. What’s it like? Are you rich? Are you popular? Do you have a million cars? Well 17 year old Teddy Haner doesn't have to imagine.

Gunni is a 16 year-old violinist who has just been hired as the leader of the Icelandic Symphony Orchestra. Siggi is the 19 year-old Principal Cello who is not at all happy with this new development. This kind of plot obviously demands that Gunni develops a crush for Siggi, but that's just the beginning. The story is told by Gunni and Siggi in their own distinctive way. Expect everything from humour to drama, and of course music (and plenty of fun in bed!).

In the end, the emotions become lyrical and we see how the creative process is sometimes a healing one. Let's see if we can find the Coupe de Ville hiding at the bottom of a Cracker Jack box.

This is a collection of songs I've written for different musical artists in my literary world. Each chapter will be one song, title first and artist second. Enjoy!
