James Raven

Biography

Immigrated to Australia with my "ten pound pom" family in the early fifties spending my boyhood in Victoria. Family moved to South Australia at the beginning of my teenager-hood. Followed all the sci-fi TV series e.g Star Trek, Lost in Space, Dr Who, Time Tunnel. And then in my adulthood followed all the Sci-fi movies, Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica, Star Gate, etc. Have always loved English Literature all through my school years and started writing romantic poetry, graduating to my first non-fiction book in 2003 on separation and divorce. A close friend of mine seemed to recognise that I had the talent to write novels and that I should be entertaining readers with the sci-fi genre that I love. He read my new book "Sentinels of Tzurac" and enjoyed it so much that he is eager to read my sequels in the trilogy. That has given me the self-confidence to continue writing full time which I am now doing after recently leaving the public service after 40 years.
