The Calling (Volume 1) Paperback – September 20, 2012
About the Author
Originally an engineering graduate from the UK keen to become an astronaut, somehow John Peace ended up working in community development overseas for some years. Did he take a wrong turn? He says he has very few regrets. In between, he's worked in a soup factory, driven a taxi in London, served refreshments in Regents Park and a few other odd jobs. He recently settled with his Canadian wife and their two sons in Ontario, where they enjoy the great outdoors, Finnish pancakes and blueberries, preferably all three at once. He confesses to a lifelong fascination with science and science fiction, ever since watching Dr. Who and Blake's Seven on the BBC as a boy. He's even old enough to have fuzzy memories of watching the Apollo 11 landing on TV. Whew! That's hard to believe. He believes good science fiction for children should have solid science behind it as much as possible, but in a way that doesn't suffocate the flow of the story. But more than that, the characters should pop off the page in full colour. So where did The Calling come from? John says, "I started writing it for my two sons, and it just kind of grew. There are not that many science-fiction novels out there for eight year-olds and over, apart from that very well-known collection with the squeaky little robot and the big, hairy alien with the crossbow. So I thought it was time for something new. I hope you like it."
