Product Description

About the Author

I am 60 and a retired Electrical Engineer. I used to make control panels, mainly for the MOD and nuclear power stations. I have a University Degree in Maths and Physics and I enjoy reading all about Quarks and what they could do to drive a ship through space. When I was 17 I sent my first spaceship design to NASA with a picture of a model my friend and I built. Three years later, I saw a photo of what looked very much like my spaceship on the front cover of Spaceflight, (a BIS production), it was an artist's impression of what the Space Shuttle would look like when it was built. I then sent two more designs to NASA, which were interplanetary ships, very large and able to get close to the speed of light. I believe that one day we will get to see the stars close up and travel far into space. My main interests are astronomy, photography and model building; I also enjoy reading SF and Horror, I really enjoy Stephen King, and have a very good imagination. I like to watch films, mainly Sci-Fi, but I also love Harry Potter and action films. When I write books, I see them as a film in my head, knowing what the book will be like from beginning to end. Being an Electrical Engineer and knowing how electricity is made and with my degree in physics, it helps me when I design engines that take ships well past the speed of light. When writing space battles, I also have to create new types of weapons, guns and the ships themselves. The ships have to be realistic, for their size and the engines that power them and their weapons have to work. I like the reader to see how the weapons work and what the energy beams do to an enemy ship and how the ship breaks up when it's destroyed. Not all ships disintegrate to minute pieces, large sections will still survive and they have to go somewhere, even if it is into the path of another ship. I also like to show the reader, in slow motion sometimes, how Intelligent Torpedoes get into a ship

Brilliant book, fantastic ending to a three book space saga. It's a long story, but well worth the time reading it. If the future is anything like what the auhor says, we will be going places and not everyone is bad in space. A true story teller, can't wait for his next book.
