J.J. Green is a British-Australian science fiction author who believes the science in science fiction includes zoology, botany, genetics, evolutionary theory, social science and psychology. Her characters are real people living with the challenges of existence in future societies, and some are kickass sci fi heroines too.

Her series include Space Colony One, Star Mage Saga, Shadows of the Void and Carrie Hatchett, Space Adventurer.

J.J. was born in London’s East End within the sound of the church bells of St. Mary Le Bow, Cheapside, which makes her a bona fide Cockney. She first left the U.K. as a young adult and has lived in Australia, Laos and Taiwan. She currently lives aboard her starship in Cambridge, UK, with her ship’s cat, called Blac

Our brains have many ways of tricking us into procrastinating. It's my belief that writer's block is one of them. I don't allow myself the option of experiencing it. I don't wait until inspiration strikes, or I'm in the mood to write. Even if I have no idea what to write, I just start writing. (less)

Hi Brent

Thanks! I'm so glad you enjoyed Starbound. I've released three box sets of the Shadows of the Void series. Unfortunately Amazon's product page setup doesn't allow me to show them alongside the individual books. But you can search for them. They're called The Galathea Chronicles, The Earth Chronicles and The Galactic Chronicles. Put my name into the search bar too.
If you're patient and would like to read the entire series at once, I'll be releasing a 10-book box set later in 2018 on Kobo and via Payhip.
I love Jas' tenacity too. She needs plenty of it during the Shadows of the Void series.(less)

What shipmates can expect

Brrr! Things are cooling down aboard our starship, and your captain has been forced to divert a little heat from the engines to the life support system. The ship’s cat isn’t objecting, as you can see at the bottom of the bulletin. Notice how he bypasses the radiator bed and makes a beeline for the radiator itself? He doesn’t miss a trick.

I hope you’re doing well during these tumultuous times. Some
