It's 2029, an asteroid heads for an impact in the Sahara desert following a mysterious change in orbit. Far from being the catastrophic event that had been predicted, an ancient secret is exposed that will re-write the history of mankind. Was an undiscovered branch of our family tree the foundation for our present civilisation? Who did build the pyramids? What are the markings on the Nazca plain in South America? The Torah Cult, a secret organisation, set up hundreds of years before, will stop at nothing to prevent the release of any information. Professor Simon Cartwright and Professor Mary Freeman are thrown together in a fast moving adventure where they travel from Timbuktu to Ayers Rock in Australia via Durham and Bangkok, while they battle to stay alive long enough to reveal the truth.
For more than 30 years, I developed computer systems for major UK and international companies which involved writing long and complex technical documents. In 2005 I took early retirement and in 2010 I started writing my first novel "Homo intellectus". I self-published it in 2011
I was born in 1947 and write under the pseudonym of 'James Anthony'. I didn't think my birth name was very marketable.
I'm currently writing a sequel.
I'm fascinated with ancient cultures and what happened to Homo Sapiens during the time that we have been here, at least the past 200,000 years. Currently, my books explore this theme.
