Have you read my Dark Space series? These books have a special place in my heart, mostly because the narrator, Brady, is angry, scared, and so used to feeling that way that it takes him a long time to realise that Cam can actually love him for him.
Plus, terrifying aliens, lol!
Dark Space was one of the first books I wrote, and it’s always been a little bit of an easter egg that Brady and Cam are both Aussie boys. There are a few hints of it in the story, but then, this version of Earth is so removed from ours that there’s not much left of anything resembling our modern nations. But there are still mentions of cockatoos!
The series is now out in hardcover, with special edition illustrated covers. You can find them all on Amazon.
