About the author

Thomas J. Bradley

1 book11 followers
Thomas loves the infinite possibilities and the endless wonder of space. He is especially fond of distant galaxies with unusual aliens piloting gigantic battling spaceships—with lasers. He distinctly remembers one childhood afternoon when his parents took him to the video store and his Dad pointed to an older movie sitting on a tucked away shelf: Return of the Jedi. Thomas’s life was transformed as his newly science-fiction–infused imagination blossomed. Thomas believes that the wonder of The Universe can bring excitement and hope to anybody.

Thomas currently lives in Ottawa, Canada, where he spends his days teaching web design and development at Algonquin College and his nights with his wonderful wife, Liz, and their three excitable pups: Paddington, Corduroy, and Wellington. He has previously written two children’s stories: Bartholomew the Bragging Bullfrog and High, Low, Over & Under.

I love this book! The pace kept the book exciting and easy to pick up and get right into, which is great for those of us who are finding we have less and less time to read. I immediately fell in love with the characters and the universe and I hope to read more adventures with Mariska and Hal in the future!

I definitely recommend this book for all Sci-Fi/adventure lovers!

This book was awesome! Such a creative and lighthearted read, featuring a courageous introverted heroine. Perfect for a younger audience, or the kid in all of us. Hooray for space adventures!
