More About the Author
Science fiction has been a passion for me since I was a kid, largely motivated by my mother's love of the genre. Having grown up on a diet of Star Trek and Blake's 7, further fuelled by my parents' addiction to the physics of outer space, it was a foregone conclusion that I would grow up to be a sci fi nut. You are far more likely to find me watching a programme about how black holes work, than reality tv.
My dreams are big, and I believe that everyone should aim impossibly high. Although you might not quite reach the stars, if you just aim for the ground, you'll only hit the ground. I believe in destiny and pre-destination, reincarnation and alternate dimensions, human life being the result of alien experimentation, and bacon as a remedy for all ills.
I love to laugh but a joke must be clever as well as funny to make my lips quiver. Billy Connolly and George Carlin are my comedic heroes; you can keep your custard pies and banana skins.
Writing has proved to be the making of me in many ways. It has forced me to upgrade my vocabulary and knowledge, and it allows my naturally observant nature to be of positive benefit. Finally, as the Autumn years of my life begin, I now have a way to get my voice heard and my inner self flying to the stars where she has always wanted to be. I invent worlds, terraform them to my own design, and populate them with people of my own imagining. I cannot change the world I live in, and I cannot leave it for somewhere more comfortable, so I invent my own spend as much time in them as I can.
You are welcome to visit my universe. Take a chance and catch a flight today, you may just find you never want to return.

Acts of Life

Acts of Life is a movie that Jake Elloway, a famous vidicom star, is going to act in.
The movie requires him to do some research aboard an intergalactic freighter. I really enjoyed watching Jake go from a self-centered actor, to a person who really cared about the crew on the ship. Don't get me wrong, this guy is not nice, but he does grow, and learns who he is. I also loved not knowing the ending, there was a nice little twist. The characters are built up well, and I want to see more of them, always a good sign of some good writing. I especially liked that I almost forgot I was reading Science Fiction. Some Sci Fi I find hard to visualize, and don't enjoy the writing, but that was not the case with Acts of Life. If you've never read any Science Fiction, this is the book to try as your first. I was given this ebook in return for an honest review. email@example.com
If you like futuristic space stories, bad pirates,and scary planets, you will enjoy this book.
