Graham Keeler

Author Graham Keelerabout this book: This is a science fiction book in the space opera genre, that explores what happens when an Earthgirl accidentally stows away on the spacecraft of a fugitive alien adventurer.

It's an idea I've been developing for a number of years, but more recently I had time to start putting it down in writing. The original draft was completed in a few months, but I quickly realized that it was very rough, and I joined a critiquing circle (www.critiquecircle.com), which I found extremely valuable in helping me improve my writing and cleaning up the plot. This process was quite slow and time consuming, because critiques were done on a reciprocal basis and took up a lot of time, but the process was also useful as it forced me to concentrate on the way other writers worked, and this fed back in to my own writing.

I have always disliked stories where the protagonists display amazing talents, survive massive physical punishment or get out of impossible situations, so, apart from accepted science fiction extensions to known laws of nature like hyperspace travel, I have tried to keep everything completely realistic, with the protagonists facing believable situations and keeping in the main to the known laws of physics, yet writing a story with plenty of action in the plot.

At the end of the day, my main aim has been to write a story that engages and entertains readers and to have it read as widely as possible.
