Alan James Garner

about this book: Always fascinated by prehistoric and extraterrestrial life, I decided to combine the two interests in my debut novel and so was born The Chosen One. The story covers the final days of a disparate group of North American dinosaurs before the extinction event that gives the rat-sized mammals a huge step up the evolutionary ladder occurs. Throw a mysterious offworld visitor into the mix and the scene is set for a tumultuous tale of aliens and asteroids, reptiles and rodents, love and betrayal. A former cartoonist, I injected wry humor to offset the pathos of a bleak, roller coaster ride that, while without a typical happy ending, nonetheless does end on a ray of hope. Young Adults and older will find The Chosen One an intriguing blend of science fiction and fact.

I take immense pleasure in designing all my book covers, which can often be more challenging than writing the actual books! Afflicted with a stammer since childhood, I find writing to be the ultimate expression of my beliefs and opinions. Freed of the limitations my speech disorder imposes in my daily life, I can - in the words of an editor of mine - "...wax lyrical" as a novelist. And that's what books do, fire the imagination and fuel the spirit.
