More About the Author

I was born the year Steven Spielberg made moviegoers everywhere terrified of sharks, namely 1975. I lived the first twenty or so years of his life in Oxford, and am pleased to have spent so much time in the place where some of my favourite writers wrote their greatest works (including JRR Tolkien, CS Lewis and Phillip Pullman). Things went gradually downhill from there as I attended University in Southampton and afterwards managed to muddle my way into television where I have worked ever since. I like to think I can write a diverting story, and as a result I have penned a few novels. I might be sadly deluded, but that's for readers to decide. I currently live in Plymouth in the UK, and am married with two children. I am presently brainwashing them with the same books that I loved growing up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Space + Adventure = Brilliant! 11 Sept. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am a big fan of the book Uncle Flynn, so was looking forward to another by the same author. I am pleased to say I was not disappointed! When I recall reading this book, I imagine myself under the bed covers reading by torch light, hoping a disapproving parent doesn't scold me for staying up too late with an exam the next day. This isn't an accurate memory though as I am 37, but still, my inner 13 year old loved this ripping yarn and if I had read this in my childhood, I am sure it would have been under those circumstances! Great book full of exciting situations which brought a smile to my face - it was a thoroughly enjoyable read. No hesitation in a 5 star review and if you get a chance to read, you'll soon see why.

This is the second Simon Dillon novel that I've read and have thoroughly enjoyed. A wonderfully engaging and enjoyable read. A fun and easy going escape from reality, as all good books should be!

3.0 out of 5 stars George Goes To Mars 3 July 2014
By Monica - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Unfortunately, this book just fell flat for me. I liked a few of the characters, like Giles and a few of the characters on the space expedition, but I just didn't really like George. I thought the premise was way too unbelievable. I wanted to like this book, because I liked "Uncle Flynn," but I just didn't really care what happened to George, and that's not a good sign in a book. It may just be a boy thing, though. I'm a mom of 12 and 10 year-old boys, and my boys might really like it. It only has a couple of swear words and some violence with bullies, fighting a war, and a deadly river with some graphic descriptions. I think it would be appropriate for 10-11 year-olds and up.
