Jon Lymon

Author Jon Lymonabout this book: Small-time criminal and big-time loser Sye Remnant is going nowhere. Unemployed and the wrong side of 40, he's just marking time drinking and thinking. But mainly drinking.

That all changes when news of the discovery of an asteroid made of diamond is leaked over the internet. Remnant knows his chances of getting his hands on the gem are as thin as his hair. But desperation and an overwhelming desire to do something that will make his estranged daughter proud of him combine to give Remnant the motivation he needs to try and overcome his underdog status.

THE DIAMOND RUSH is my debut novel. It traces Remnant's against all odds quest to beat NASA to the gem. Who'll be home first with the loot? Will an embittered South African diamond baron scupper all their plans? And most worrying of all, with the Diamond Rush causing unprecedented unrest on Earth, will any of them have a home to come back to?

For me, it's about trying to reach an unattainable goal. Trying to do something that's beyond your capabilities in order to impress someone else. There's no way Remnant can succeed where thousands of others fail, is there?
