Man O’War released on Monday 23rd November

I can’t really believe it’s happened so quickly, but Episode 1 of the Bookstreamz adaptation of Man O’War will be available to view on the Bookstreamz platform from Monday 23rd November.

Elaine Sturgess and her colleagues Leslie, Paul and Wendy have done a brilliant job in getting the production ready to fly in such a short amount of time, especially with all the chaos and uncertainty that surrounds so much of our lives these days.

Actually, the uncertainty and instability that has been handed to us thanks to the pandemic have actually necessitated a bit of invention, and these Bookstreamz adaptations are just that. It’s been keeping theatre actors and producers in work, it’s provided an outlet for this author in a much-slowed down publishing sector, and it provides people with some much needed entertainment, especially those who would otherwise look to the theatre, where most of the cast have cut their teeth.

It is a great cast, too. I’m very grateful to have such rising stars as Jessica Clark and Alessandro Babalola on board, and think it will be a great piece of work. We’re also looking into the option of creating a recording of the performance, which could then be transformed into a cast-read audiobook.

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.
