The Hole In The Sky Done!

After two and half years I’ve finally completed my second novel, The Hole In The Sky, an SF thriller about Grub Teng, a psychitect left horribly crippled after suffering an accident at his employer, the Nunes-Elessia Psychitecture Corporation (NEP-E). Embittered and reduced to self-medicating to hold back his resulting psychosis, Grub joins the cyber terror group T-127 to get revenge over his former employers. But when their methods become violent, Grub is left weighing his desire for revenge against the innocent lives of others.

And when NEP-E uncover the blueprints for a monstrous lifeform from the vestiges of Grub’s mind, he discovers things about himself that shatter his sense of who he is, and threaten everyone he’s ever been close to, and everything he’s been fighting for.

Taking in the death of religion, the encroachment of technology upon the lives of humanity, and the desperate yearning we have for control over our own lives, The Hole In The Sky was a huge undertaking and one I’m hugely proud of.

At present I’m seeking representation to sell the book on.

Away from the page, I work for the UK Space Agency on a European programme of space robotics for advanced satellite and planetary exploration technologies. All of which comes in rather handy when coming up with new ideas for science fiction stories. My first novel Man O’War was published in 2018 by Snowbooks, and I’ve had a few short stories published hither and yon. I’m a member of the Society of Authors and a supporter of SFFChronicles. I was born in Forest Gate, east London, and now live in Essex with my wife and two daughters.
