You’ve probably landed here because you have just finished book one of the Brightwater series, Major Ryan Returns. I have started work on book two, and it should be available around this time next year. To keep you going in the meantime, click the link below to read the short story Last Cigarette and let me know in the comments if you think it would make a great sitcom. Don’t panic if your comment isn’t immediately visible: I have to moderate comments to avoid the whole page filling up with people trying to advertise viagra.
If you HAVEN’T read book one, get it here.

Brightwater: Major Ryan Returns tells the story of Grace, a civil servant called back from retirement in 2025 to deal with a global pandemic, and of Tom, a NASA astronaut who returns to Earth in 2098, after 80 years in cold-sleep, to find the world much changed.
Traumatised by watching the rest of the world die, the inhabitants of Britain have built a new, more tolerant, more equal, more compassionate society. Under the inspirational leadership of the King and the mysterious Council of Grandmothers, they have navigated the years of hunger and begun to heal and re-settle the planet. Genetic changes have eliminated many diseases, rape is impossible, and reincarnation is accepted as simple fact. The survivors and their descendants live long lives of peace and abundance, and some have mastered the art of remaining youthful into their second century, but not everyone is happy about the changes. Major Ryan Returns is the first in a series of six Brightwater books.
