Darren Hoyland (1980-Still Going) was born and raised in the town of Grimsby on the north-east coast of England and is only slightly traumatised from the experience. He first realised he wanted to be an author when he was told off by his English teacher for writing too much. He still gets a buzz from other people reading his work and is not, it would seem, above walking into Tesco and loading Episode 1 up on the e-readers. Having spent the best part of ten years at seemingly every university the country had to offer, he has acquired a BSc in Biological Sciences, a MSc in Informatics and a PhD in Computational Neuroscience, as well as a love for all things sciencey and an unmanageably large student loan. He currently lives in County Durham in the UK with his wife, son and collection of small, annoying animals.

Raiding a planet is generally regarded as a bad idea. Alex and his crew know this, but are convinced it's worth the risk by a genius who goes by the name of Christian Islam.

Alex Kaidan S01E01: Paradise Lost
by Darren Hoyland
Approx. 15,000 words.
Published on October 30, 2012.
Being unable to name your space ship is less of a problem when there's only one ship in the Human 'fleet', besides Alex Kaidan only really borrowed it. More of a problem is Earth being paved with only a few survivors. Alex's mission is to rescue any remaining Humans being held by alien races. A mission made harder by the fact that a catastrophically decimated population is not an employers' market
