YA and New Adult Sci-Fi Fantasy Books
Welcome to my new website. Okay, first up. It says books in the title, but as yet there's only one :0) But I'm optimistic there will be more and then I won't have to change the web address and titles.
Sky was published in December 2012, and I'm currently writing the sequel, Stargazers, which I'm hoping will be available around June 2013.
Both are YA/ new adult sci-fi fantasy stories with a touch of horror, but don't feature vampires (although a zombie-like creature does make an appearance). I figured there are enough books already with vampires, and doubted I could bring anything new to that particular genre.
So I went for aliens, well not consciously - it just came out that way. But when I look back at the sort of books I've read since the age of six, it's no surprise really.
Having said 'ya / new adult', I get many emails from adults who've enjoyed reading Sky, but I believe a good story appeals to any age - so I'm hoping that means Sky is a good story :0)
Why did I start to write?
I've always enjoyed reading and have fond memories as a child devouring the books by Arthur C. Clarke, John Wyndham and J.R.R. Tolkien. When I wasn't playing sport, I could usually be found reading or watching old science fiction movies.
I'd always wanted to write, but after many a failed attempts I put that ambition on the back burner - for much too long.
But finally, after reading a number of books and online courses on how to write - see my recommendations in my tips for aspiring writers - I set myself the goal of writing a novel, it just came out as Young Adult.
