The 13th Vote

On a distant world, in a not-too-distant future, Alyn Frederick Jr. arrives home from college and is shocked by his father’s murder. Alyn hasn’t a clue as to who killed him or why, but even more puzzling, finds himself as the main suspect. A forlorn detective, employing a rapidly developing A.I., partners with an idealistic journalist to find answers. They uncover a grand conspiracy, orchestrated by a powerful politician, who aims to radically transform society, but must trigger an interplanetary civil war to do it. Alyn must discover a dark truth about his family’s legacy if he is to clear his name and prevent the genocide. And the key to it all, is his grandfather’s wristwatch. 


Meet Brendan Gavin

Brendan is a book-lover, curator of ideas and a keen observer of our human condition, who has combined these with his passion for vintage time pieces, and finally wrote the book he was always wanted to read.

Stay safe from the Evacuation Zone with Peanut Butter and Jelly while visiting the Isolation Worlds or Planet Loreia in Gamma Zaria. Molly’s Second Chance in the Meadow Race leads to Summer on Solar Life.

While I Don’t Mean You is intended to be encouraging, it often leads to Better Forgotten Memories as the Status Quo, or No shifts. Nerissa’s Legacy gives us A Fair Beginning with Prince Charming, in a life where the Safe Place is home.

As our world struggles to survive, and to find A Measure of Life, filled with Painted Paper, will we build Glasses Houses, or Cycle through our lives? Adult Orphanages, and Finally Family may become reality, instead of Second Place.

Will Broken Dogma lead us to Cluster? Or will The Gift allow us to encourage Going Hunting while Saving the Family Farm with (or without) the Written Word?

Space Kids – The Journey of Hope

As a 12-year-old, would you like to lead a space mission with three other kids, and no adults?

This was the situation Sophie Williams found herself in. Having lost her dad a couple of years ago, she decided to try to make him proud and go for it.

It is 2068 and Space Command has been sending astronauts to distant planets for many decades now. However, no child has ever been into space, and they need to understand how children will cope.

After a relentless application process, Sophie is thrilled to be chosen to lead the mission. She is joined by Sahil, a science wonderkid from India, Leena, an incredible pilot from Finland, and Jack, a genius engineer from USA. They are helped by Codey, the latest space exploration robot, and Biggles the dog, who’s main skill is making people feel happy.

The children knew they would be the first kids in space, but they had no idea their journey would turn into the greatest adventure in human history.

This uplifting story inspires children to believe they can accomplish things that adults can only dream of and overcome the greatest of challenges. It provides us all with hope.

“It made me feel really happy that middle-grade books nowadays are inclusive and not just in a way to add supporting characters from marginalised sections. 5/5”

“The author’s creative juice drips from every single page. If it could excite a full-grown adult like me, I’m very sure that the children would find it the same way. 5/5”

“I wanted to show my boy that the stars and science and tech in general are the future and can be a massive source of inspiration and ambition for him. A side benefit was reinforcing that a woman (well, girl in this case) is just as likely to be the leader as any man. He loved the story, absolutely enticed even though there were some tricky concepts for a 6 year old to understand. But he got the gist of it and most of all just couldn’t wait to hear the next problem the kid team would come up against and how they managed to solve their way through it – offering his own thoughts along the way too of course. 5/5”
