About C. J. Watterson

Ciarán works as a Computer Engineer writing yards of code for an international chip manufacturer. After nearly ten years of working with and studying computers, his conclusion on the A.I. threat is that come the rise of the machines - they will probably destroy themselves through bugs 'cleverly' left by their designers. Our difficulty will be to survive without computers.

He began writing (human speak rather than machine code) in earnest when he realised that dull essay titles such as "What I did Last Summer" could be twisted to become any story. Stories played with Lego were used to knock out troublesome homework - the hard stuff that didn't involve calculus. Surprised by strong results, one idle summer, he began writing a prologue. That expanded into book, and the book became the first part of a series. So ironically, "What I did Last Summer" was already prepared in advance.

Widely read and with an interest in all things technical, scientific and obscure, he draws from varied source material for his books. Influential authors are David Eddings, Terry Pratchett, Alexander Dumas, Clive Cussler, C. S. Lewis and how could we leave out, William Shakespeare (specifically Macbeth). Of course - he doesn't write literature - he writes light-hearted, entertaining Sci-Fi/Fantasy tempered with occasional serious notes.

Review by: Christopher Lowe on Jan. 3, 2015 :
Wonderful follow-up to the first in the series. I enjoyed it immensely and liked it more than the first one. I read voraciously and enjoy both fantasy as well as sci-fi. This fits into either quite well or even both. I am a huge fan of this original and thought-provoking narrative. If you're looking for a story that will enthrall you for hours on end. This is what you're looking for.
