Overview

Angela is on a mission. To prove that the winning stick body formular can triumph over all. Even over Lucy Crow-Bennett's Barbie like curves and long limbs.

Fat chance. Have you seen Lucy Crow-Bennett? Ayi-yi-yi...

Oh yeah? Well I've got brains, know how and I'm every bit a woman as she is!

You are? So prove it.

G'ner! You'll see!

The Intrepid and her crew are on a mission. To boldly go and investigate a drifting hulk that has come from outside of the solar system and is passing right on through and out again. The Intrepid's crew are all experts in their field, but their current field is small, cramped, zero-g and a million miles from home. Angela and Lucy are the only two female members of the crew. That means they get to share one of the even more cramped living quarters in the shuttle. Their differences soon begin to effect Angela's mind, as does Scott Martin, the Intrepid's ever so handsome captain. But being all cramped together in a steel tube floating in space is the perfect time to learn who and what you are, and when Angela gets on the derelict, who, what, when, where, and above all, how, are questions she's soon dying to answer. For Nac Tikmak, the derelict is home. And for over a thousand years he has waited for another visitor, like a spider in the centre of his web. And the derelict is no ordinary web. But are the Intrepid and her crew ordinary flies? And if Nac Tikmak is the spider and the Intrepid and her crew are the flies, then who the hell is Humbolt?

Meet the Author

I was born in Manchester in the North West of England in 1957. Although I have moved around a bit, Manchester is still both my physical and spiritual home. I am a Northerner. I am also married to Rosanna, and have been now for twenty-one years. I have an imagination that began when I was very young and never waned. I also like reading and so it was no surprise I suppose when I started writing. Because I am an unknown who has never been picked up by either an Agent or mainstream Publisher, I am a bit of a one man band. I even do my own covers and have become a bit of a digital artist as a result. I started writing when I was young and very bad. Now I am older and a lot better. My writing has improved too. I write science fiction, fantasy and romance stories. I also like to mix and match with romance in science fiction and so on. Female characters feature very prominently in my stories, many of them in strong and attractive leading roles. The reason for this is that I like women, a lot. In fact I adore everything about them, so it is no surprise that I enjoy reading stories where women feature prominently and that I should also enjoy writing stories where women feature prominently. It gives my stories a female bias, but I think they are better for it. I also like every character, even the monsters and villains, to have a realistic reason for being and doing what they do. Like reality, everything blurs. There is no right or wrong, just different viewpoints that lead to conflict. But I also like my out and out villains to be really bad. If you like science fiction, thrillers and romance stories with particular emphasis on leading female characters that are exciting and adventurous, look no further.
