As the end approaches, Li-Sen-Tot remembers his time on this once peaceful world and the people he had come to kw so well. Those memories tug at his bitter heart, but his loss is too much to bear. For the Androktones and the Seventy-Ninth of the Telen'Gal, the final reckoning brings the final solution to the turmoil that has dominated their thoughts in equal power. For Anaxilea, it is a final peace for her troubled conscience. And with the Gate Of Heaven safe, it is time for Tai-Gil and Ann-Ra to leave. And when the war is finally over, the aftershocks continue. Victory is hollow for Ares and the Atlantians as they head for Troy and a life in exile. The Klysanthians also face an uncertain future, and Peleus must decide whether that future is the one that he will share. Prophecies and legends entwine, and in the end only one thing is certain: Nothing will ever be the same again. The Friendly Ambassador: Walking with the Enemy is the fourth part of an ongoing four part science fiction epic in which female characters feature very prominently, many of them in strong and attractive leading roles. The story began with The Friendly Ambassador: The Beginning of the End. The Friendly Ambassador stories blend Greek Myth with traditional science-fiction, taking a different approach to the legend of Atlantis, the origination of the Amazons, and the true nature of mythical creatures such as the Cyclops and Centaurs as aliens from other worlds. The story is set on Atlantian Earth, on board various ships in space, and on the far off world of Eden. It is full of rich characters, monsters and hardware, but it is packaged in a totally different way to anything that's been done before. Although there are many visual centrepieces, it is the relationships between the principal characters and their understanding of each other that is the main focus of the story.
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.
