Sci-Fi and Fantasy Author

“…it’s past twelve o’clock, and we’re sheep in their flock,
The shepherds, they're always watchful;
There’ll be no reaper's scythe, if we all pay the tithe,
So remember to ever be grateful…"

If you enjoy dystopian science-fiction you’re going to love this book!

I am Legend meets The Passage, with a healthy dose of Daybreakers.

The Blight changed everything, sweeping the globe, leaving humanity on the brink of extinction. The melior, with their immunity and fortified walls, stepped in to provide sanctuary. Now, the last of the human race are enslaved, but alive.

The world is stable once more, or so it seems. But one by one, ecosystems continue to fail. All hope rests on a scientific discovery in Sydney, but change won’t come without a fight.
