I am a life-long fan of science fiction, and so when I had an idea for my first story, I wasn't surprised that it was in that genre. The first book took me ten years to complete, but I've got a little quicker since. I am pleased to say that I now have over thirty books published in my name.
What next? So far I haven't run short of ideas for new stories, so there are several projects in various stages of completion, and I hope to be publishing the next story before too long, so please subscribe to my alerts.
My profile picture is a portrait of the author as a young man, painted by my daughter Charlotte Salisbury who has also contributed to several of my book covers.
In the 1970s I studied Chemistry at university and then spent over thirty years in classrooms across England teaching almost anything but Chemistry, including Photography, Communications Skills, General Science, Computing, and Information and Communications Technology.
In the 1990s I spent ten years writing abstracts of chemical patents. This was a most exacting process but very rewarding to be reading about the very latest inventions in the field, and the abstracts were distributed world-wide to research scientists by subscription. Articles of mine have been published in magazines and I have written assignments used for assessing Communications Skills for a major international Examination Board.
After retiring early this century I began writing in earnest.

I have read Peter Salisbury's two novels, Passengers to Sentience and Passengers to Zeta Nine, so I was looking forward to this short story. It doesn't disappoint. In fact, I think it's my favourite of his so far.
Once again, the relationship between a man and a woman is central to the plot. In this case, the relationship is in jeopardy, and I found it quite moving. The author speculates about how technology would work in a future world and comes up with some very interesting ideas. Imagine if physics lessons were fun - that will give you an idea of how Peter Salisbury's books work.
I really liked the time travel/parallel world elements to the story. I don't want to give too much away, but something happens that causes a rift... the world is in chaos. Can it be repaired? Can the lost people be saved?
We learn about Quantum Fog and The Wanderers. My favourite line in the story: "Where is my hundred per cent Susie?"
