About the author:
I was born in western Sydney, Australia, in 1965 to my Australian mother and English father. When I was ten years old the family moved to Rotherham, England. We lived there for almost two years, and then returned to Australia. This time we moved to Burnie, Tasmania. At fifteen we all moved again, this time to Sydney.
I got married to a wonderful woman, and we had two great children. But in 2001 I was feeling as though something was missing. I divorced, and left the placed I called home. I then moved to Michigan, USA, where a little over a year later I re-married.
Over the years I had written many short stories and snippets, but during all this time I was unable to tap into that special place needed to write a full size novel. That all changed in 2010 when I decided to revive an old dream and re-start writing, thus the Terran Chronicles saga was born.
The website www.terranchronicles.com has a more detailed biography.
I hope you enjoy my work, as much as I do writing it.
Take it easy

Terran Chronicles Universe

Authored by James Jackson
Edition: 1

The Gamin have left Earth, and in doing so have raised many questions. Clearly we are not alone in the universe. As the alien visitor's ships have revealed, space is not a peaceful place. The discovery of a massive construction dock in the Australian Outback surprises all. The partially built spacecraft within its confines is a baffling mystery to many, a technological marvel to others. A consortium of countries pool their resources in their attempt to complete the 'Terran'. Will the massive vessel even be able to launch? If so, will the crew begin their journey to the stars? Or will that be denied to them by the orbiting satellite grid the Gamin left behind?
Cindy commands an assortment of people from all over the world. Her skills are put to the test over and over again as the crew endures one harrowing event after another. With their very lives hanging in the balance she is forced to make decisions that have far reaching consequences.
George, once again, finds himself embroiled in events beyond his control as fate and destiny collide. Lisa and Johnny can only wait as he is propelled toward his ultimate destiny. Commander John Thompson looks forward to flying the massive spacecraft with trepidation. Arguably the best space shuttle pilot in the world, his capabilities are pushed to their limits, and beyond. The Australian astronomers, Joe and Andrew, find themselves trying to comprehend the alien technology. They are tasked with navigating the alien spacecraft, assuming it can get off the ground and into space. Radclyf and Hayato find themselves, and their respective combat teams, experiencing the adventure of a lifetime as foes old and new challenge them. The brave Russian Olaf and his secretive countryman Peter, complete the main crew as the story continues.
Discovery introduces a few new characters, while at the same time, bids farewell to others. Fate and fortune twist and weave its way as the crew experience events beyond their wildest dreams. The adventure that began in 'First Contact' continues, each person's fate begins to be revealed.
