More About the Author

I live in the south west of Scotland with my children and band of cats. I love to read fantasy and science fiction so it seemed a natural progression to write my own stories!
I've always been an avid reader ever since I was a child and fondly remembered some great stories like the Narnia books. These fond memories are why I decided to write for both children and adults!

Format: Paperback
After surviving an attack on their spaceship, which killed their parents, Troy and Tristan find themselves at the The Home for Displaced Children. Tristan rebuilds their ship and, along with 4 of their new friends from the Home, they set out to return to their home planet. Along the way, however, they realize that they are being followed by the very man that killed their parents. A stop at a space station prepares them for the task ahead: to stop Red Raven from attacking a merchant cargo line, and free them from the space pirate, once and for all.

Classified by the author as a children's science fiction novel for the 8+ age range, I still found it an enjoyable read. Tristan, Troy, and their friends, Krista, Ziggy, Lena, and Orla are a group of characters that you cant help but like. All alone for their own reasons, they bond together and make a formidable group, and also a lesson on what family means, related or not. Action, adventure, sci-fi creatures, and a little mystery all combined. I especially look forward to further adventures to see what Orla, a kind of quiet hero, is truly all about.

An easy read, simply worded , but don't count it out as a "rising star" in children's fiction.

It was a fun read, and the type of read that made me wish for more. I think I would have done a couple of things differently, but I am not the author. Light and fun.

Tristan And Troy are left orphans when their parents ship Star Chaser is attacked by pirates. Three years after being in the home for orphans, they want to return to their ship and space. Along with some new friends from the home they make their way finding adventure and enemies along their path. A good tale for the young and young at heart, a light tale with some sad moments. Looking forward to the next book.

This was a good book. I read an average of eight books a month, mostly science fiction. I was skeptical of this one but decided to read about half, before making an opinion. At the halfway mark, I could not stop reading. It is a very satisfying story and I recommend it to space minded readers. You won't be disappointed!

I'm not sure if it was intended as such, but the simplistic writing style makes an easy read for younger readers. Not quite pre-teen, but kids who express an interest in science fiction are sure to enjoy it.
