ADRIFT

“A TERRIFICALLY CINEMATIC ROLLER-COASTER" - SciFi Magazine

Out Now - Orbit Books

In the far reaches of space, a tour group embarks on what will be the trip of a lifetime…

At Sigma Station, a remote mining facility and luxury hotel in deep space, a group of tourists boards a small vessel to take in the stunning views of the Horsehead Nebula.

But while they’re out there, a mysterious ship with devastating advanced technology attacks the station. Their pilot’s quick thinking means that the tourists escape with their lives – but as the dust settles, they realise they may be the only survivors . . .

Adrift in outer space on a vastly under-equipped ship, they’ve got no experience, no weapons, no contact with civilisation. They are way out of their depth, and if they can’t figure out how to work together, they’re never getting home alive.

Because the ship that destroyed the station is still out there. And it’s looking for them…

ZERO-G (OUTER EARTH #2)

ZERO-G is the nonstop sequel to Rob Boffard’s Tracer, a brutal, gripping thrill-ride, where the hero moves like lightning and the consequences for failure are deadly.

The clock is ticking down again for Riley Hale.

She may be the newest member of Outer Earth’s law enforcement team, but she feels less in control than ever. A twisted doctor bent on revenge is blackmailing her with a deadly threat. If Riley’s to survive, she must follow his orders, and break a dangerous prisoner out of jail. To save her own skin, Riley must go against all her beliefs, and break every law that she’s just sworn to protect. Riley’s mission will get even tougher when all sectors are thrown into lock-down. A lethal virus has begun to spread through Outer Earth, and it seems little can stop it. If Riley doesn’t live long enough to help to find a cure, then the last members of the human race will perish along with her.

The future of humanity hangs in the balance. And time is running out.

IMPACT (OUTER EARTH #3)

Following Tracer and Zero-G comes Impact, the explosive conclusion to the Outer Earth trilogy – a heart-pounding thriller set in space where the hero moves like lightning and the consequences for failure are deadly.

A signal has been picked up from Earth.

The planet was supposed to be uninhabitable. But it seems there are survivors down there – with supplies, shelter and running water. Perhaps there could be a future for humanity on Earth after all.

Riley Hale will find out soon enough. She’s stuck on a spaceship with the group of terrorists that is planning to brave the planet’s atmosphere and crash-land on the surface.

But when the re-entry goes wrong, Riley ends up hundreds of miles from her companions Prakesh and Carver, alone in a barren wilderness. She’ll have to use everything she knows to survive.

And all of them are about to find out that nothing on Earth is what it seems . . .

DUST

Read these three terrifying stories from the internationally acclaimed author of TRACER, ZERO-G and IMPACT.

An inmate in a maximum security prison develops terrifying abilities. A sound engineer accidentally summons a demon. And two car thieves get more than they bargained for when they steal a witchdoctor’s car…

These are some the short stories published when I was first getting started with making things up. They date from 2013 and 2014, and I think they’re pretty good. Good enough that I collected them into a single volume, available on Amazon for a knockdown price.
