Mars One Inspired The Children of Mars

I have always been interested in Mars since I was a boy. I have read books about it and studied magazine articles about what it would take to get there. I had always felt that by the time my own kids were adults, human beings would be living on Mars. Sadly, politics and reluctance of mankind to invest wholeheartedly in space ventures has meant that we may not in fact go there any time soon. But when Mars One announced their own bold plan, I was intrigued. Irrespective of whether in fact they can do it, the idea of selecting astronauts for a reality show about going there and then transporting humans to Mars as the end goal shows imagination.

I was so inspired by this that I just had to write a book of course. That book was further given a push through NaNoWriMo and the result is my first novel about Mars titled Children of Mars. I am now writing the sequel to this book and will rework and improve the original at the same time. Children of Mars has been my best seller in recent months and achieves consistently good reviews. Take a look at the covers and trailers below and then head to my author page to find out more about this and other books.
