“About A Rain of Fire:
War has come to the Galaxy.
The dark forces of the Neo Hegemony strike, sweeping across the worlds of the Arcadian sector and crushing all in their path.
One system stands against the onslaught, the Kingdom of New Avalon. But the men and women of their expeditionary forces are trapped behind enemy lines on a besieged planet. Losing those troops will lose the war.
Their only hope? A last-ditch rescue mission led by Captain Hal Cutter and his battleship, Achilles. Beset on all sides by lethal enemy warships, he must lead a rag-tag fleet of naval and civilian vessels across Hegemony-held space to save the beleaguered Kingdom soldiers.
In the skies and orbit, Lieutenant Jason ‘Rick’ Richards and the untested pilots of Viper squadron clash in a furious battle for supremacy against elite enemy fighters.
And on the ground, Private Patrick ‘Wink’ Goble and his platoon must hold the line against a ruthless commander and her overwhelming force of battle-tested mechs until salvation arrives.
All will play their part in this desperate struggle for survival against impossible odds.
The Great War has begun…

For as long as I can remember I’ve always enjoyed science fiction, especially the grand masters of the genre, Arthur C Clarke, Stephen Baxter, Alistair Reynolds and many more and finally decided to try my hand.
I hold a degree in Aerospace Technology and won the opportunity to work in Milan on the design of a Satellite, got a Pilots License (before I learnt to drive) which led to the best weekend job going, taking Air Cadets flying in a motor gliders and for a year was an officer cadet in the TA.
After all that I had a bit of a quarter life crisis and decided that I would succumb to the kid in me and follow a career in chasing bad guys. That led to a huge hole in my life though, the desire to think about what I consider ‘the big issues’ a desire I’m addressing with my writing.
Nowadays, I’ve calmed down a bit and enjoy spending time traveling, seeing what the world has to offer, scuba diving, long distance running and, of course, writing.
