Product Description

About the Author

Merita King has loved the science fiction and fantasy genre in both books and movies since she was a young child. She has been greatly inspired by years of watching movies and reading books and has wanted to make a contribution to this genre for many years. Her stories all contain a spiritual thread as she believes that spirituality is universal and crosses all boundaries. She believes that the creative process is largely intuitive and can be very effectively blocked by too much pre-planning. “Plot lines, characters and events all come to me intuitively,” she says, “and this makes the act of writing a constant pleasure.” She lives alone, with her vivid imagination, in Hampshire, UK.

More About the Author

I've loved science fiction since I was a young child growing up with Star Trek and my parents' love of all things connected with space. Whether it was fiction or science fact, if it was about space, the planets, and the universe, they absorbed it and passed on that love to me. I deeply regret being born at a time before space travel is a normal daily event. I have an adventurous spirit and would go into space without a second thought, if the chance came my way.

I can remember being a very young child and looking up at the sky and wondering why my real family left me behind on this planet, and hoping they were coming to get me soon. They never did, but I still have that feeling that I belong out there. I cannot go there of course, but in my books I can. Having grown up on a diet of space opera movies, TV and books, it was a foregone conclusion that it I ever wrote a book, it would be space opera. Many books later and I'm still enjoying exploring my very own universe.

When building my alien worlds, I am inspired by movies I've seen in the genre, rather than books I've read. I guess I'm a visual person, and people often say my books read like movies, that they 'see' a movie in their head as they're reading. I like that, I'm happy that happens. It is very important to me that anything I invent in my future universe, gadgets, gizmos, diseases etc, have a basis in today's known science fact. I research and begin with a known fact, then build from there. I feel that this helps to make my worlds believable for the reader. The great thing about space opera is that you can invent stuff, but if you're too fantastical you risk losing your reader's attention.

I'm autistic and live inside my head more so than those who don't have this condition. Interacting on a very deep level with my imagination is necessary for my mental health, so I find connecting with the flow of creative force, very easy. Away from writing, I enjoy making Native American inspired beaded pow wow fans, and I'm a crazy cat lady in training. I live alone with my two cats and a very vivid imagination, in Hampshire Southern England.

My books are available in paperback and kindle from Amazon uk and Amazon usa and from most internet suppliers.

Floxham island is a murder mystery mixed with science fiction inspired by the likes of Doom, Resident Evil and Pitch Black. This first book introduces us to a strong character and some interesting secondary ones, great writing and a great plot made me read it in one sitting.
