Weapons of Choice

Join Finn, Zuri and Corporal Smith (deceased) as they explore new worlds and face hostile Alien Contact during their desperate search for a pathway home, in this thought-provoking, military sci-fi thriller series.


Read the enthralling series that reviewers have described as ‘superlative’, ‘compelling’ and ‘an outstanding piece of sci-fi story telling’.

It may be ‘eccentric, creative, and thought-provoking’ and ‘rich in character development’, but it’s also one heck of a ride.

‘This is a moment in time humanity will never forget. Hostile Contact’

 A sci-fi winner


Good Reads Review

Author Grady Harp

So looking forward to the next turning, sheer escapist Sci fi. Brilliant.

The Official Notes

Nick Snape has been steeped in Science Fiction and Fantasy since his friends first dragged him from his schoolwork and stuck a book under his nose. Lost to the world of imagination he became a teacher by accident though he thoroughly enjoyed developing the joy of reading and writing in his pupils. Having retired after thirty years he thought it was high time to practise what he preached.

The Unofficial Notes

If you're really desperate to know more I was a Primary School teacher (or Elementary School) mostly working with the youngest children. I just love their honesty, and yes, I am bald, as they told me every single day. I later became a headteacher (principal) with the core objective of making my pupils' lives and education as worthwhile as possible.  When I say ALL children, I mean that from the bottom of my heart. Every child deserves the best we can provide. This included starting up a specialist support provision for Autistic children as well as emphasising the joy of learning from a very young age. Having completed thirteen amazing years in that role, working with a wide range of neurodiverse children on the way, I decided I wanted to go in a new direction. Having always had a passion for reading and especially telling stories, well, why not be an author? Well at least one person did the honour of paying to read my book, so I can now use that word. Whoever that first person was, I thank you. Why not a children’s author I hear you ask?  Well, I don't know. Maybe I just want to write what I enjoy reading when I need to switch off. Stories are an escape, and perhaps I need to escape when I write them?


 What else is there to tell? Erm, well, I fall off my mountain bike a lot, and I mean a lot. I love walking, usually after having broken the bike, but sometimes  for fun too. I love Sci-Fi films but don't ask me to list my favourites, those arguments can go on for hours. Let's just say cancelling Firefly was a travesty I haven't recovered from.  Oh, and I have some great friends who have kept me sane (stop laughing) over these last few years of madness we have all suffered. That's it.


I hope you enjoy my book (and if I'm really lucky books) and thank you for taking the time to be interested. I aim to make this series as much about the characters as the action.  If you want to let me know how well I did that, well there's always the review link below.  A few words would help a new author get his feet off the ground and in to space. But no worries if not. Thank you for reading.
