Neil Hogan was born in Sydney in 1971 and from the age of 3 had a strong interest in science fiction, time travel and metaphysics.
Lots of boring stuff happened next including some stuff that didn't happen.
Then in 2008 he launched the Alien Characters series and has been developing the universe of these characters on and off since then. A 70 story series in the style of Mr Men, Thomas the Tank Engine and Doctor Who.
Alien Characters blurb:
In the style of Mr Men and Thomas the Tank Engine (with a bit of Douglas Adam's style reality) comes Alien Characters, a monthly series of science fiction short story ebooks for children aged 6-10. Separate titles include Alien Bob the house grower, Alien Hamish the star mover and intergalactic navigator, Alien Robert the robot technician and child care worker, Alien Christine the crystal energy technologist and healer, Alien Tim the Time Minister, Alien Vince the air recycling plant and environmentalist, Alien Carla the Galactic communications channeller, Alien Rex the parallel reality trade specialist, Alien Amanda the galactic immigration minister, Alien Nathanial the magnatheric energy and First Contact specialist, Alien Anneke the galactic flash relocation accountant, and a number of other residents of the Large Magellanic Cloud. From series 2 most characters are somewhere on board the ship The Celestial Breeze along with its Companion Planet, collecting more Alien Characters before leaving for their journey to the Milky Way Galaxy.
Each short story focuses on a new Alien Character and whatever problem they need to solve on the way. For example, in Alien William - He decides to move some of his millions of descendants to multiple alternate realities where his race doesn't exist so they can spread throughout infinite levels of reality, but is told by the consciousness of the galaxy that her other parallel selves can't allow it, so he needs to find another way!
Neil currently lives with his wife and 2 children in Sydney and, to supplement his writing, works casually as a private English teacher, affiliate marketer, website creator, computer repair person, blogger and metaphysics lecturer.
