About Debbie Renner

My love of science fiction developed at an early age thanks to popular TV series such as Star Trek, Space 1999 and Lost in Space, plus books like The Day the Earth Stood Still, The Phantom Tollbooth and Alice in Wonderland. Drawn to action series like '24' and the hugely popular Star Gate SGC. "Independence Day'' is one of my favorite flicks because of its blending of strong characters, brilliant script, humor & ACTION! Another that comes to mind is "Evolution" starring David Duchovny.
I remember the days when there was no restrictions and my dad took me to see 2001: A Space Odyssey when I was 6 years old. I was absolutely terrified. I remember the muster smell in the theatre in Wellington and had nightmares for weeks after. That experience had a definite impact on my brain today. If I can get scared, I want to relate that to others, badly.

I am a late bloomer as I never really thought about writing, but when I moved to Australia, lightening struck one humid evening in 2005. Odyssey Bourne Force began life as a two page hand scribbled essay, and then decided to grow arms, legs and a personality in the process. And that process is still developing. Where it stops nobody knows.

I have scores of unfinished manuscripts of novels, short stories, poems and lyrics stashed away in cyberspace, ready to one day face a brave new world.

My second book in the OBF series "The Sword of Sorrows" continues right after the first one and offers plenty of twists, turns and 'what if' to keep the reader guessing to the end. Which I promise will either piss you off or/and tear up your brain into confetti. My third book will bring you full circle and beyond, this has the working title "The Katophia Mission."

I will be re-editing to polish each book over time and once complete, you can upload for free if you already have an older version. The story will be the same, just better English. LOL

My short story "Bad-Habits" was short listed in the Brighton Community of Writers competition. It is a dark, humourous tale about some quirky characters with psychological problems tied together with a "Tales of the Unexpected' ending. Read that for a bit of light relief.

Though OBF is my first (physical) published novel, already a feature film script has been written by the multi-talented Deborah Louise Robinson and is up for option.

All questions and feedback is most welcome at:

FYI: April 2017, I finally found out what that sci fi kids series I watched (aged 5) was called: Timeslip. Ok watching it now is cheesy and over-acted, but the details and story line were ahead of its time. Going through the time barrier must have left a profound, long lingering fact stored in my data-brain.

Fun read, imaginative ending. I'm only voting it down a little due to your overuse of adjectives throughout and those page numbers should go. They clutter up your otherwise clever little story.

I loved this! It definitely would have made a great episode of The Twilight Zone. A great quick read!
