Author John Brooksabout this book: 'The First Rays of Sun', is a free flow story of a group of people after disaster has destroyed the civilised world we know today. It is a tough existence initially, of kill or be killed, eat or starve.

Within the human spirit of some, is the hope and ambition to improve their existence and to generate common desires that create unity against problems, like enemies, hunger and justice.

Ultimately, a kingdom is born that moves away from yesteryear horrors. People, as throughout history, love and hate, cheat and die; whilst fighting against frightening weather extremes and people of opposing views of life and how to deal with their futures.

As their new kingdom grows, tough decisions are called for, all be it, love is found and peace is generated, then lost.

Whereas, history repeats itself in many ways, civilisation attempts to move forward, attempting to solve the endless problems of life, the problems we create. Whether the acceptance of all tangents can ever be allowable, is a constant question to be battled with.

The story follows the views of those committed by the cause, the leaders and their lives, their doubts and quandaries; all with good intentions of a better future, but who really knows the right path to a golden horizon with butterflies and swallows.


The story is created in a trilogy, starting with 'The First Rays of Sun', published in softback and E-book, then still to be published, 'The Second Dawning', completed, and then lastly, 'Innocent Reflections', which is nearing completion.


The writing of the story started five years ago, amongst the writing of many other stories. There was no clear plan, but as the book developed into something hopefully worthwhile, it caused many a moment of serious thought.

Ultimately it seems, that every adjective can be applied to our journey of life upon this wonderful planet. Objectively, everyone can only aim towards harmony, equality and peace, unfortunately, that journey includes dictatorship, democracy, kindness and violence. An adventure of spirit and mind.

I loved writing this particular book, night light shining and endless cups of coffee. Living the characters, their decisions, their doubts and loves, and ultimately, their deaths. The future of Garrtellia is still not known by myself.


I hope the story is suitable for teenagers upwards, all be it, there are some sexual scenes, which some may not feel happy about, but, all is intended to be in context with the lives of those within the story.


I am very pleased to be able to say, that all readers I am aware of to date, have thoroughly enjoyed the first book, and for me the biggest compliment is that they could not put the book down, that has been excellent news.

The editor of the publishing company, SPBRA, after twelve years as head editor commented; 'As head editor for twelve years, I am pleased to tell you that your book is definitely is my top ten. You have done a great job John'.
