About this author

John Nugent is an American/Kiwi/Australian living in Adelaide, South Australia. He has a passion for fiction in any form and is an avid gamer. He has loved writing for as long as he can remember and has always pursued it in one form or another.

After a career in information technology, and two film credits, he has chosen to devote his time to writing a new science fiction saga that embodies as many elements of the genre he loves as possible, and reinventing episodic fiction in the burgeoning world of e-publication and new media.

John holds degrees in Political Science from The Evergreen State College in Washington State and in Film and English Literature from The Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand.
