About Paul Day

Paul G Day specializes in books aimed at children and young adults. He has a unique narrative style designed to draw the reader's attention to the images of the setting as well as the predicament of the protagonist. Through human and non human characters, his books tell a very human drama and the complicated emotional journey we all sometimes find ourselves taking as we search for meaning and answers to profound and often confronting questions. Every one of his characters reflect a personality which has its beginning in the heart and mind of the writer himself. Paul's stories are about love, loyalty, family and courage. They represent a coming of age, where the central character must learn and grow in order to survive the complex and sometimes unforgiving world about them. Paul believes in strong young characters who stubbornly and sometimes defiantly challenge the troubles that compound their lives, finding a way, even in the darkest, bleakest moments of their otherwise unremarkable existence, to overcome adversity, thereby ultimately becoming extraordinary.

Review by: Chris The Story Reading Ape on Aug. 04, 2015 :
This is one of the most character in-depth science fiction books I've ever read!
The author has put a lot of consideration into how the only human - Tamsin - would react to situations that occur throughout her growing up period while travelling through space to her final destination. A journey that was planned and started 800 years before her birth.
Even how the various robots would act, taking into consideration how high level their programming is.
The method of storytelling is reminiscent of the old masters of the genre, like Isaac Asimov, Greg Bear, Ben Nova, et al.
This is a tale to savour and live in.
I consider it to be excellent and my favourite read so far from this Author.
My hope is he will write a sequel soon!
