C M Weller has decided to keep their full identity a secret until such time as one of their works becomes a bestseller. They share a house in Burpengary East with two children, a cat, and a spouse who sometimes thinks they're insane.
Unfortunately, this author has managed to avoid doing all the things that make author bios interesting reading. Sorry.
This writer is allergic to almost all forms of alcohol (long story), too asthmatic to indulge in tobacco, and in possession of a body chemistry that makes the more interesting drugs problematic at best. Thusly, their chief addiction is their own imagination.
And sugar. Lots and lots of sugar.

Humans are kept alive until they’re past breeding age and then executed. The Tu-atta are aliens of a humanoid type that keep humans enslaved on a large space station.
Sahra Johnston is one of 17 children. None of her family bothered to teach her how to speak properly so she mis-pronounces many words but this is no reflection upon her intelligence. She’s a child prodigy although she’s only six! She is mocked by both her siblings and other children who work in the mines but she cares deeply for the welfare of her family who are on the brink of starvation.
Eon was an overlord at the station until rebels planted a bomb with the intention of killing him. As a shapeshifter he’s hard to kill so he ends up as a gelatinous blob oozing along the tunnels absorbing sustenance. Sahra mistakes him for a slime dog and cares for and loves him as a pet. At first he regards her as a stepping stool on his way back up the ladder but starts to realise that she is the only being who loves him.
It’s a shocking finale and one is left wondering – did little Sahra and Eon die? (If Eon can die that is…)
Implausible yes indeed but highly entertaining.

I am not a professional reviewer so will not go into plot and character development. I am however an avid reader of all types of fiction and really enjoyed this story. If you want something a little bit different I highly recommend it. Can't wait for the second book in this series.
