Episode 2 Spiral Arm front cover

Episode One

Wren Harper lives on an overcrowded Earth on the brink of apocalypse. There are just too many people. The answer lies 600 light-years away on Kepler; a planet more than double the size of Earth. For decades humans have been fighting another race for its control. Earth’s armies are depleted, so now 15-year-old cadets are sent to fight, trained along the way in vast combat ships. But why has Wren been chosen? She’s small and geeky and not a fighter. Will she survive Kepler? Or will the training kill her first?This is the first novella-length episode in the series.

Episode Two

Wren is in the most dangerous place imaginable – a training ship full of fledgling killers heading to a war-torn planet. She’s struggling to keep up, and the other cadets aren’t impressed. But Wren’s not done for yet. She’s a survivor and uses the one thing she’s got to even the odds – her super-smart brain. But will that be enough?

In praise of Episode 1

“It had me on the edge of my seat the entire time.”

“Everything about this story is intriguing.”

“… the beginning of a great space opera.”

About the Author

After studying to be an architect, Pete realised he wasn’t very good at it. He liked designing buildings he just couldn’t make them stand up, which is a bit of a handicap in an industry that likes to keep things upright. So he switched to advertising, writing ads for everything from cruise lines to zombie video games. After meeting his wife Shalini and having two boys, he was amazed when she sat and actually wrote a book. Then another and another. They were good too. Really good. So he thought, I’ll have a go at that. He soon realised there’s no magic formula. You just have to put one word in front of the other (and keep doing that for about a year). It also helps if you can resist the lure of surfing, Taekwondo, playing Lego with the boys and drinking beer in front of the TV.
