In the early fifties I emigrated from England to Australia as a youngster with my “ten pound pom” family. I spent my boyhood and my teenage years reading Marvel and DC comics and following all the sci-fi TV series of Star Trek, Lost in Space, Dr Who and Time Tunnel. Then, in my adulthood, I watched sci-fi movies including Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica, and Star Gate, and continue to watch new release sci-fi movies. I have always loved English Literature and started writing romantic poetry, graduating to my first non-fiction book in 2003. After retiring from a career of forty years in the public service, I am now writing full time and applying my martial arts training and my interest in science and science fiction, to write believable and exciting sci-fi stories. Readers from Amazon Books who read my first sci-fi novel published in 2012 “Sentinels of Tzurac –Terra Major Under Threat” have asked for more in the space opera adventure and I have now made the series into a trilogy. The second book in the series is "Zakwin's Revenge" and the third "Retaliation" will be released soon. My books are being adapted into screenplays in anticipation for future films which many of my readers would like to see happen.
