Gavin E Parker

Biography

Gavin E Parker is from the Isle of Thanet in southern England, where he has lived and worked his whole life.

He has dabbled in creating music, film and video in the past and is currently writing novels, short stories and blogs.

Inspired by the rapidly expanding possibilities open to publishers in the twenty-first century, in 2014 Gavin set about writing his debut novel, Ephialtes. Ephialtes is the first of a trilogy of books chronicling the war between Earth and its former colony on Mars. A series of short stories - Ephialtes Shorts - set in the same fictional universe will be released alongside the main trilogy.

Having worked in healthcare, local government and education he has a mildly jaundiced view of the human condition, but still maintains good humour about it. Things could be worse, right?

In 2241 Mars declares independence from the USAN on Earth. The USAN sends an enormous spacecraft, Ephialtes, to pressure the Martians into reconsidering. The Martians take some countermeasure of their own. Politics turns to brinksmanship. Just as each side seeks to avoid conflict they are both drawn inexorably toward it and, with Ephialtes closing in on Mars, time is running out.
