The author recently retired from teaching after 45 years at the chalk-face. He has always loved to write and has always been fascinated by human behavior, history and science. He has wanted to write ‘The Secret Second Coming’ all his life.
He wrote a Legal Studies textbook ‘Computers and the Law’ which was published in 1994. He has written many articles for educational journals and been a columnist in regional newspapers.
It is difficult to categorize my novel. Given the main character is an alien, it would be easy to regard it as science fiction. However the character of Jason is really a construct to explore human nature, relationships, politics, religion, education and culture. It seems more at home in a social science or philosophical science fiction genre.
My intended audience is for educated adult readers who are interested in the human condition, the future of our planet and the fate, in particular, of one lonely inter-galactic visitor.
Although the setting, characters and language are distinctively Australian, the story has universal appeal.
I hope you enjoy reading my novel as much as I did writing it.
