Robert Appleton is an award-winning English author of science fiction, steampunk and historical fiction. In his free time he hikes, plays soccer, and kayaks whenever he can. He also likes to read as many Victorian adventure books as he can get his hands on.
In a world where fleets of airships roam the skies and great towers of scientific learning pierce the clouds, no one's heard of the misfit McEwan sisters. One collects admirers, dispenses bad advice.
