Mysteries at Treasure River

Mysteries At Treasure River I was running behind a potential story for my first ever field report as a journalist. A story that needed closure for the society that it was entangled in. It was a mystery that opened doors for more mysteries and forever changed my life, along with the people around me at that time in the small sleepy town of Treasure River. Unlike the articles I carve for public display, this book is sculptured to preserve the memories of a story that left me shackled prohibiting me from sharing it with the world. A story to remind me that every mystery that we try to hide comes with strings attached. Mysteries At Treasure River Mysteries at Treasure River is a SciFi mystery adventure novel written from the first person perspective. The person that was writing the story is a young journalist that is trying to get a big breakthrough to enhance the career as a journalist. The story takes place in a rural area and the people that this young journalist meet only displays the character qualities of humans that we meet on a short encounter. Because this is written in first person perspective the character qualities stay inline with the perspective of the writer. The reader gets the ability imagine the physical nature of the story teller with complete freedom to their liking and comfort. This is also extended to other characters and locations as well. The plot on the other hand have incredible twists and terns leading up to a discovery that is science fiction in nature but with a hint of reality lurking. It’s the small factors and points that ends with couple of sentences that really demand the readers attention. The book is about a 5 hour read with a nice flow where the different story line come together to form a grand out come. The pace of the story is quick on the other hand and have few moving parts which demands the readers focus and imagination. Hope you have a great read !!! Written & Reading Perspective: This book was written from the perspective of a young journalist coming home from an incident that took place in the past few days. Restricted from the journalistic way this young person puts memories in to words and writes this book for personally keeping the story of the incident from fading away from memory. A book that was written to be shelved forever out of the public eye. Just to keep the memories alive while they last and relevant. The following novel should be read in the mind space of a book that is written by a young journalist coming from a dramatic few days of investigations for story and writing that experience that was absorbed during those few days into paper to preservation of memory. The term “Botanical Warfare” is an attempt from the authors behalf in introducing a novel term where it meant the weaponization of botanical science for defensive or offensive actions.

Meet Nipuna D. Ranasinghe

This is my first time dropping my pen in the ink to write a book. In this novel I try to look at a SciFi angle that is not a common topic. This book is written from a first person perspective of a young journalist that went to a small sleepy town called Treasure River for a filed report. But when more he dive into the story more mysterious it gets. End of the day the law got in the way to tell the story to the world. To preserve the memory of what look place in Treasure River this young journalist did what is known by putting the story to written word. The reader would be reader would be reading the book as a books found buried in the young journalists shelf. The book is written in an angle were to preserve the memories and for phycological relief. The character that were met by young journalist in Treasure River was for the first time and for short periods thus limiting character back stories.

Meet samr

This is the first of two books featuring this heroine and the aliens-amongst-us environment.

Cease Fire: A Space Adventure Book 1

Stranded in uncharted space, Karma is finding it harder to keep information from the crew.

But what she knows will affect their chances of survival.

At least with the crew knowing about the device it means that she can work with them to get it back online and find a way home.

That would be the plan, but for a pesky distress call.

A distress call they have to answer.

The problem with responding to distress signals in unknown space, with untold threats all around, is that you also run the risk of needing to send out your own distress call.

Which presupposes that there are friendly folks somewhere around. And that you’re not going to attract the attention of any lurking hostiles.

Not only that, but their side quest could very well result in losing crew members.

And we’re not just talking about red shirts.

New Orders: A Space Adventure

The year on the human home world calendar is 2220.

Life is a bit like the sci-fi shows of the 20th Century in some ways.

In others? Not so much.

I’m on a League of Civilizations star ship. Yep. Star Ship. In space.

Currently trying to physically, and emotionally, recover from a crash where I lost my partner. All would be going fine except we also have to survive an encounter with the deadliest lifeform in the universe.

A lifeform we were starting to think was just legend.

No big deal.

If it were just about the lives on board that would be one thing. But it’s not. What we do next will impact everyone, in all the League civilizations. That’s hundreds of billions of sentients. They could all be wiped out.

I’m running out of options.

And time.

Oh yeah, and as if dealing with trying to save everyone in the universe wasn’t enough, I also have to contend with a crush on the ship’s first officer who also happens to be… yes, you guessed it, a synthetic life form.

Fuck my life.

Surviving either of these things intact is going to be a challenge.

Wanderer’s Odyssey – Books 1 to 3

The Empire will kill him for stealing this ship… but they have to catch it first!

To the Empire the Wanderer was just another booby-trapped ship to claim, and Jess was just another worthless slave who could be sacrificed in the process.

Things didn’t go to plan.  Jess survived the dangers, and when he sat in the pilot’s chair the ancient ship came to life for the first time in centuries.

Acting on instinct Jess seized the chance, firing up the engines and fleeing the Imperial forces.
Now Jess and the ancient self-aware ship are on the run, their freedom and their very existence on the line.

The smart thing to do would be to run like hell and never stop, but Jess finds he can’t ignore pleas for help from those in danger.  With the powerful Wanderer at his command he can truly make a difference… but at what cost?

Buy this collection of the first three books and see why tens of thousands of people have loved following the Wanderer’s journey, leaving comments including “In the end, I was gripping the arms of my chair as I rooted for the heroes.”, “A fast paced, can’t-put-it-down Sci-fi.” and “One of the best books I’ve read this year.”


Meet Simon Goodson

Welcome! Come in! Take a seat by the fire and let me tell you a tale of adventure, danger, ancient starships, and universe threatening evil… (Wanderer’s Escape)

Or maybe you’d prefer a tale of magical powers, dark deeds and one man’s fight to do good despite the darkness within him… (Dark Soul Silenced)

Ah! You can only stay a brief while? Then I have many shorter tales to entertain and delight you, but beware… one will never be enough! (Tales from the Starflare Universe & beyond)

Oh… it’s you… you with the insatiable appetite for new stories. Well then, I have a treat for you. Visit my site SciFi-Shorts.com for a whole bunch of totally free short stories, with a new story added every two weeks.

You came here to learn about me? Well, there’s no accounting for taste I suppose. This tale is not as dramatic as the others, but perhaps you will still enjoy hearing it. I’m a father of three who’s always loved to read and make up stories. My teachers recognised this skill from an early age, and gave me the lofty title of Daydreamer.

After many years I decided to get the worlds I created in my mind down onto paper… well, the computer anyway (my writing is horrendously unreadable!) and other people read and enjoyed them. So I keep on writing, people keep on reading, and our dogs keep on demanding they be fed. Really. Every ten minutes! It’s a wonder they can fit through the door.
