Leonard G Mann


Leonard G Mann is an engineer, scientist and dreamer. Top of his bucket list is his desire to talk to an ETI. While unlikely, it doesn’t stop him from imagining the numerous ways in which one could meet or communicate with aliens.
Born in North London, UK, he now lives a life lost in the wilds of Dorset with his wife and their two dogs. Looking out across the countryside at the wildlife and the distant ocean makes a good backdrop from which to develop new stories. Leonard’s other interests include the study of cosmology and science in general, including the effect humankind has on our planet. He also enjoys walking the Jurassic coastline and Purbeck Hills with his wife and extended family.

Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
When I first develop a story I see it as a movie, pictures in my mind. When I showed my first writing efforts to my daughter, she suggested I wrote a screenplay rather than a book. I could see exactly what she meant and I thought about doing that for a while but finally decided to stick with a book.
The joy of writing for me is visualising the story and imagining it as a film available for anyone to watch.
What does your book say about religion
Despite the tittle 'Melissa Our God', this book is not about religion. It's about someone using religious belief to control and manipulate people. I trust that atheists and believers alike are not offended by this book.

The Melissa series considers a Galaxy containing several intelligent species. Are they aware of each other? Are they at war? How does this affect our home in the Solar System? We follow the story of a small group of human beings determined to survive in this multi-alien Galaxy, but how is that possible when our intelligence is so much less than theirs?

Everyone worships Melissa; well almost everyone.
