I've been reading science fiction since I was eleven. I found that first book in a ship's library when there was nothing else to do onboard. It jolted my preconceptions of what was possible. I've kept on reading since then. The Elder Daughter of Dark Sky is my first novel.
I am scientist and I study how fast living things grow, which has absolutely nothing to do with science fiction.
I live in Hobart, Tasmania with a tolerant wife, at least two dogs, and innumerable wallabies.
Tom Civis, naval officer in command of a survey vessel, suddenly vanishes, possibly to defect. With stolen secrets he might avert a war and save his famous sister from assassination. As he flees he is hunted by the Church which now controls almost all the worlds. He must decide: should he unlease chaos?
