Her novella Across Spacetime will be released on 31st March 2017 by Fountain Blue
2651: humans have colonised most of the Solar System, and have a vast theoretical knowledge of the Multiverse. The Martian branch of the Earth History Institute decides to put that knowledge into use by offering a few lucky students the chance to spend a short while on a different point of the spacetime continuum for research purposes.
Samir, a young Terran, takes this opportunity to experience London in the ‘90. A few years later he happens upon another time traveller, Beatrice, a young Progressive (human from the outer planetary systems). They fall in love, but for their story to work out they have to overcome their own prejudice and change their expectations from life.
I first met Angela a few years ago on a creative writing course in our home town of Folkestone. I am often asking her questions about her writing, book and sci-fi. Here are a couple of them for your enjoyment.
Would you like to go to the Moon Angela?
Oh yes! There are so many things to check out, like the very tall features (some of them 4 miles high) that look a lot like artificial towers (check these coordinates on Google Moon, images from NASA: 22°21’50.69″N, 81°59’12.92″E and this one 16°17’20.57″N, 87°36’23.56″E), or see if it’s true that it is almost completely hollow.
And I’ve seen lots of footage on YouTube with UFOs caught hovering over the Moon or seen from the International Space Station. Many astronauts have admitted that they saw them, like Buzz Aldrin.
So, when shall I start packing?
When did you start writing?
In 2008, although a tarot reader told me in 2000 that I would write a book within two years.
I was struggling with a severe health problem at the time, so writing was not a priority.
The work I started nine years ago never saw the light of day, thank goodness! I don’t regret writing it, though. The feedback I was given pushed me to attend several Creative Writing courses, and the research on the Saturnian moon Titan came in handy when I wrote Across Spacetime.
Where you pleased with how your Across Spacetime Facebook Launch Party went yesterday?
It was hard work organising it, but the party unfolded without glitches. I was touched by the support I received from friends, family and my co-hosts. The event is still available online at http://bit.ly/2mAGWLg to give to who couldn’t attend yesterday the chance to discover new interesting authors, learn more about Across Spacetime and have some fun.
And the fact that you Karen stayed at my place for a few hours was a bonus.
So there you are straight from the horse’s mouth, I do find it all very interesting and I love Angela’s enthusiasm about anything sci-fi.
I have read the very first draft of the book and even then I thought it was amazing and to be honest was quite surprised how much I enjoyed it as never before had I read anything like that and also never as a child was interested in anything to do with the future apart from Doctor Who who I did enjoy very much from behind my granddad’s chair as it was very scary for one so young.
I have included the links to purchase and I have given it a good 5 stars. Well done Angela xx
