Ian Irvine was brought up in Scotland, and studied Physics for far too many years, before travelling the world working for high-technology companies. Ian has spent a career helping build the internet and delivering its benefits to users throughout the world,...as well as helping to bring up a family. Ian enjoys writing, painting and composing in his spare time. His particular joy is found in taking scientific fact and creating a thrilling story around it in such a way that readers learn science whilst enjoying the thrill of the ride. It is Ian's hope that everyone who reads an I.C.P.Irvine novel will come away learning something interesting that they would never otherwise have found an interest in. Never Science fiction. Always science fact. With a twist.
The first of Ian's novels is a Genetic Conspiracy Thriller which explores the world of Stem Cell Research and encourages us all to ask some very searching questions about the advances that science is making, and how much we, or others, should let it affect society. A contemporary adventure, "The Orlando File" takes the reader around the world and back, and creates a unique moral dilemma that the reader cannot help get embroiled in: at the end, the reader must ask themself, what they would do in that situation?
His second novel "The Crown of Thorns" explores the power of genetics, explores the questions that the potential to clone humans will raise, and asks the ultimate question...what would happen if a scientist found a way to clone Jesus Christ?
Ian's third novel "London 2012 : What If?" departs from the world of genetics and explores an interesting possibility that Quantum Physics raises:the possibility for parallel worlds to exist alongside each other...and what would happen if a man who wondered what other types of lives he could be living had he made other choices, where unexpectedly to step from one world into another, similar but different, parallel world. "What If" is also an interesting vovage through human emotions, and many readers will find themselves asking themselves similar questions that lead character does as they read the book. As with both "The Crown of Thorns" and "The Orlando File", at the end of the book the reader is left thinking...and different readers may take away different views on how the novels did, or should have ended... It is hoped that in this way, the novels will make themselves ideal subjects for reading clubs or book clubs.
Ian's fourth book "The Sleeping Truth" is a departure from his fast paced medical and scientific thrillers, and is a contemporary novel inspired and based upon the tragic events that affected everyone who lived in London in 2005. The novel is fiction, and all characters in the novel, except one (the singer Helen Boulding), are imaginary. The novel tries to capture the spirit of London life in 2005. It is essentially a love story, but with every chapter there comes a new twist. As the pages roll by the main character becomes involved with a dilemma that changes and evolves and gets more complex with each passing day. And then, just as you think you have come to a happy ending, the world around Andrew Jardine collapses, and Andrew realises that nothing in his life was as it seemed. The novel explores the importance of trust in a relationship, and takes the main character on a voyage of discovery through which Andrew discovers that his whole life has been based upon a lie. But can he discover the truth and learn the vital lesson he needs, before it is too late? Or will he have lost the love of his life for ever...Okay, so perhaps it is a thriller after all... but a thriller of the heart!

Available either as a complete book: "Haunted from Within", or as two parts "Haunted From Within (Book One): Maciek's Story (which is FREE) and "Haunted From Within (Book Two): Peter's Story. Maciek's Story has already had over 90,000 downloads and in the UK has hundreds of reviews with an average rate of 4.72 stars out of five.
Book number Six was recently published and is a adventure thriller for everyone, with a bit of everything in it: Time Travel, Nuclear Weapons, Pirates from the 17th Century transported to the 21st Century, treasure, a pathogen plague that threatens to wipe out all humanity, romance, humour...it's all there! : "21st Century Pirates Inc". (Also available in two parts, the first part which is Free!(Free to Pillage!)
There is also a Book number seven: "Alexis Meets Wiziwam the Wizard" -it's a charming story for six year olds learning to read, and tells the story of a little girl, Alexis, who discovers that a Wizard is teaching magic to fairies and goblins in her own school! She joins the class, learns to fly, and thwarts a secret plan by a bad goblin to destroy the world! Whereas all the other books are in part based on some essence of truth, "Alexis meets Wiziwam the Wizard is completely made up!"
Ian hopes that if you honour him by spending the time reading one his novels, that you will find it a positive experience, and enjoy it.
