More About the Author

I live in West Yorkshire, a truly beautiful part of the world, spoilt only by the cold, wind, and rain - oh well. Owning a convertible car here really is the height of optimism.

The season one finale of Buffy inspired me to start writing. Something inside me clicked and I wanted to write something so good that it would challenge Sarah Michelle Gellar's incredible talent. Nothing like aiming for the top when you've never done something before ;-)

I've written four screenplays on spec, 2 Sci-fi, 1 superhero, and 1 horror, plus several short stories, and a novella. The novella, Destiny's Daughter, is a spin-off from one of the scripts. It was always intended to be the first in a series, and I was originally going to send it to the 'Writers of the Future' comp.

I have several design concepts for '59 as a graphic novel. These were created by two great students, Anna and Kelsey, at Calderdale college. That project is on a back-burner because the Kindle obviously allows me far greater control over my work. It will still happen in the near future.

When I'm not writing, promoting my work, or at the day job as an electrician, I play badminton, pool, and bowls (erratically).

Over the years I've ticked many things off my "to do" list, some scarier than others: fire-eating, parachuting, public speaking, singing, and bungee jumping - though I missed out on the cable-car jump in Latvia, and still want to do a jump off the Bloukrans Bridge in South Africa.

I'm a qualified glider pilot. Things still to do include playing piano, guitar, swimming with sharks, trekking the Inca trail, and whale watching.

Oh, and being on set when those films are produced.

This book literally jumps into all kinds of things -- without us knowing who anyone is or isn't. We get the idea that someone (not saying who, spoilers you know) is trying out for a job. But we don't know that until all kinds of mayhem has already occurred.

The characters do things without any reason given to the reader on WHY they are doing something --perhaps 2-3 pages later we find out why, perhaps not.

I was willing to try this . . . I'm more into suspense/thriller/courtroom drama stuff, but 2 five star reviews made me say, hum, and that's pretty much all I could say, unless it was whaaa?

I don't know if this is the first book in the series; I got the impression it was. Perhaps if it isn't, there is more character development in previous books. If it is, I certainly won't be reading any more of them. This first book, which I could not even finish, has turned me off the rest of the series.

Seriously, this is the first review I've ever given with this few stars. I hummed and hawed over even two, but I cannot legitimately say I hated it (I'll save that for textbooks!) so two it got. I HAVE read and enjoyed many alien & paranormal mysteries -- Stephen King, Dean Koontz anyone? Many others, although I do prefer the ones I mentioned above [and I adore time travel] -- Hey, I ADORED the Spider Robinson books!) this just didn't get it for me.

This is a great, character-driven sci-fi story with some surprises and thought provoking scenes. I'm looking forward to more from Sunderland.
