Owen W Knight is the author of The Invisible College Trilogy, an apocalyptic dystopian conspiracy tale for Adults and Young Adults, described as '1984 Meets the Book of Revelation'.
Book 1, They Do Things Differently Here, was published August 2015, followed by Book 2, Dust and Shadows, in February 2016 and Book 3, A Perilous Journey, in October 2016.
During an author interview on BBC Essex in January 2016, the setting of the trilogy was compared to that of The Wicker Man.
Owen was born in Southend-on-Sea at a time when children spent their days outdoors, creating imaginary worlds that formed the basis of their adventures and social interaction.
He has used this experience to create a world based on documented myths, with elements of dystopia, mystery and science fiction, highlighting the use and abuse of power and the conflicts associated with maintaining ethical values.
Owen lives in Essex, close to the countryside that inspired his trilogy.
