“Mark Whiteway is a gifted storyteller who knows how to take his readers to an amazing new world”, one where “the technology is every bit as credible as it is fantastic”. So say critics and hundreds of verified independent reviewers about the relatively new, yet stellar sci-fi author writing out of rural West Sussex, England (near the former home of H.G. Wells, on a side note). Author of the critically-acclaimed ‘Lodestone Series’, Mark Whiteway has enchanted fans over his 6-part epic, with his “gifts going far beyond creating alien landscapes and imaginative technology. His complex characters and rich plots continue to fascinate long after the properties of lodestone have settled into the background.” To follow Mark on his writing journey, find out about upcoming books, or just generally learn more about him and his published works, please go to: www.bit.ly/whiteway "Writing SciFi has been a long held ambition of mine. As a kid, I read everything – H.G. Wells, Jules Verne, Robert Heinlein, etc., etc. At twelve years old, I wrote a novella. (I still have it, hand-written in a huge ledger). It was about our sun going nova, and the resulting breakdown of society, as told through the eyes of three boys. It had a pretty surreal ending.” "Following that, life intervened, and it was only in April '09 that I determined that I wanted to get back to writing. I had had several ideas running around in my head for some time, of which the Lodestone concept was probably the strongest. As I began to develop the story, it rapidly became clear that there was no way I was going to be able to cover it all in a single book, and so the Lodestone Series was born. "The first trilogy was quite well received, which led to a second trilogy in the Lodestone universe and I then branched out into a new story which became The Arc of the Universe quartet of books. “Lockdown” enabled me to complete the epic Carrie Anne’s World and to start my next project. And on we go!" Suitable for those interested in: Sci-fi Sci-fi fantasy Epic sci-fi adventure Deep, character-driven story lines Even young adult readers with strong reading skillsRead more Read less
