About Me

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 evolving in my mind, clamouring to have their stories told. I 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 ride....


I have one self-published novel out so far, and as a taster, the prologue can be found in my Portfolio.

Story Summary

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.
This book contains adult themes and is not suitable for under 16's.
'A Candle Amongst the Stars' can be found from the majority of online stockists. The cover was created by me.

The sequel is currently being written.
