I grew up in the 80's to
00's, during the heady days of terrestrial TV sci-fi.
Long-running cult series, combined with re-runs of kitsch 70's
shows, ensured I spent my evenings permanently glued to the TV.
This had a profound effect on my fertile imagination, and it
wasn't long before strange, strong-willed characters were

ignored them, and somehow managed to get a BSc in marine biology,
and a MSc in Marine Mammal Science. But now I've finally given in
to the voices, and I'm simply along for the
I have one self-published novel out so far, and as a taster, the
prologue can be found in my Portfolio.
In the future, the word "humanity" seems to have lost all
meaning. Humans have joined forces with other races, to form the
Orion Alliance, and are systematically slaughtering and enslaving
all before them in the unending pursuit of power and resources.
No one, it seems, can halt the tide of war.
In a quiet corner of the galaxy resides the planet Zerra. High
above her surface orbits the Scientific Research Vessel Scientia,
where Zerrens and humans work together in the name of scientific
advancement. But the tenuous peace between the two races is about
to be shattered. Zerra has been marked for conquest.
With no hope in sight, some pray, some dare to question their
loyalty to mankind's cause and a brave few conspire. But will it
be enough to save Zerra, and ultimately, the human species?
This is the first novel in the Zerra series.
