FEATURED AUTHOR - Writing SciFi has been a long-held ambition for Mark Whiteway. As a kid, he read everything - H.G. Wells, Jules Verne, Robert Heinlein, etc., etc. At twelve years old, he wrote a novella. Following that, life intervened, and it was only in April '09 that Mark determined that he wanted to get back to writing. He had several ideas running around in his head for some time, of which the Lodestone concept was probably the strongest. As our Author of the Day, he tells us more about the trilogy.
