Jack started reading grown up books at the age of seven and has averaged four a week ever since. Not surprisingly his childhood dream was to become a writer himself but, as is often the case, life got in the way of his ambition and he finished up working as a costermonger on York market, a fish salter on Grimsby docks, a newsagent at the seaside and all that before attending York University to become one of its first computer science graduates.
After university Jack went on to a long career in the computer industry, the last ten years of it running his own software company. When they started making computers that worked properly, Jack lost interest and sold his business to become a teacher. Jack taught at schools around the world, including the Lake District, Egypt and Hong Kong before early retirement to follow his childhood dream and become a writer.

An interesting take on parallel worlds and alternate timelines. A great story, kept me gripped throughout.

The story is woven across multiple timelines and in two star systems and the author weaves the complicated plot with skill. It's a bit of a cliff hanger you think the ending is going to be predictable, but it’s not quite what you expect. Some new twists on old concepts and quite a few original ideas. A very enjoyable read.
