I am an indie author of science fiction and fantasy novels, my current focus being on my Science Fiction series the Guardians, and have been writing for 13 years. I live in Pembrokeshire, Wales which has been my home for the last 16 years. I am married with two children, both have left home, my daughter married with a family of her own living in Pembrokeshire, my son living and working in Cardiff. I also have two beautiful grandchildren.
I have served with the Royal Air Force as a dual trade aircraft engineer after completing a 3 year apprenticeship, run my own business for several years until a back injury prevented me from continuing, and then entered the world of finance. I am currently employed as a Local Government Finance Officer.
I have been a passionate reader since early childhood, but was introduced to the fantasy genre at the age of 10 when my father gave me some Conan books and the Thongor of Lemuria series by Lin Carter. I did not actually start writing until my mid thirties, after injuring my back and was off work for a while. It was then that I first penned the drafts of the Science Fiction series The Guardians, followed by the fantasy series The Chronicles of Ferantiana.
My favourite activities other than writing are walking, reading, researching family history, watching classic British Sitcoms, good dramas and films, and listening to music.

Who wouldn't have nightmares and severe depression when people we love are brutally murdered? The main character in this novel feels as though his life was ripped apart when his brother, father & fiancée were all killed by raiders. He vows revenge and sets out on a path to vengeance. This is an interesting novel and it has very interesting characters with intriguing scenes that the author cleverly conjures up in your mind as you read. Get ready to be transported into a world of science fiction and be ready to gaze skyward.

First off, i am not a big reader of sci-fi, tending to go more for classical and historic novels. I was recommemded this book and i must say i was very impressed. For a first novel there was enough going on in this book to hold my interest right until the end, which just left me eager to start the second.
The story starts out with a young man aspiring to be a top-grade fighter pilot, both to seek revenge on the krelathans and also to escape his home planet and explore the universe, so you start off wanting to read on to find out the background of this man, Grogaan. the story weaves between the present and flashbacks of the past without ever seeming to drag or giving too much away, making reading interesting and never boring. the development of the characters throughout adds much to the story and the descriptive writing sets the scene brilliantly.
All in all, a great first effort and i eagerly anticipate the next book; the sorcerer's duel
