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. 4, 2015 :
This is the eighth book by the author that I've read, covering various genre, and I have yet to be disappointed.
The story taking place on Mars, near the largest known volcano in the Solar System - Olympus Mons - gives the perfect setting for challenges to the settlers, each of which is resolved by ingenuity, not of the Scientists, but of their children.
As the story progressed, I found myself imagining it in a cinematic way - the only thing lacking was the background music to highlight the tenser scenes...
Like all his writings, the strength and resolve of humanity is highlighted, as well as providing valuable life lessons that could, if applied, make children (of all ages) better human beings.
