Tony Pitman's 25-year working life has bounced around like a photon in a hall of mirrors; but the constant force has been his writing. In high school Tony was drawn to words, and penned dozens of radio comedy episodes for Brisbane's 4EB. Since then he has written songs for band New Voice, screenplays for his own video production company, stageplays and musicals for community groups (including Work For The Dole) and developed an original drama methodology, the CRAB Method. This latter produced two works which were shortlisted for Queensland's George Landen Dann award, plus a full-length musical. Now he is striding into the field of novel writing with Light, the first of a planned series of six books based on the senses. When not writing - or supporting his family as a public servant - Tony is co-founding a new business which will launch a creative and historical time capsule into deep space. As such, the stars are the pages on which Tony's fiction and real life story are being written.
Light - First Book in the Senses series
by Tony Pitman
In the late twenty-first century the western world bathes in privilege, while the desert fringes of Western Africa drown in poverty and disease. From the oceans rise the immortals, turritopsis nutricula, after four billion years of waiting. Physicist Jeph Wallace discovers particles which alleviate all illness and ageing. He rejuvenates thousands of Mali's poorest, but the particles are tainted.
