The Cortii are mercenaries, for hire to anyone who can afford their services. Every government uses them; no single government can destroy them.

A newly discovered world. An opportunity for the Cortiian rebels. And a mission for Wildcat Cortia...

The Federated Planets Alliance scouts have discovered a new human civilisation; a civilisation not suited to their usual contact protocol. They want a Cortiian to test the waters, and the rebel faction has a very specific commander in mind for the mission – Ilan of Wildcat. 

To Ilan, the orders are a convenient pretext. To an ancient feudal culture about to join an intergalactic civilisation, the leaping wildcat and a rider all in black are symbols long foretold - heralding cataclysmic change.

About the author

Despite reading anything I could reach (or climb a bookshelf to get to) since the age of about three, it never actually occurred to me to write my own books. It took a friend telling me point-blank I should write some of the stories I told myself down to actually get me to put pen to paper. Since then I’ve written obsessively, in classes, on coaches, and occasionally by torchlight under the bedclothes while I was still in boarding school. At this point I've been writing for about twenty years – and I finally got around to publishing my first two novels just last year.

I was born in Gibraltar. I didn’t get to stay there long: my parents lived on a yacht at that point, and six months later, after my first Atlantic crossing, we were already in the British Virgin Islands. We moved to central France when I was thirteen, and I was sent to school in York, England, which was a bit of a shock after the Caribbean and southern Europe. In sincere hopes of moving somewhere warm, I first tried to join the Royal Navy, and then went on read languages at Aberystwyth University when that plan didn’t come off. As I now live in Canada, I’m still not doing too well on the ‘warm’, but the scenery’s a huge improvement.

When I’m not writing, I read a lot – I’m an unashamed dinosaur and prefer paperback, but I’ve recently started reading a lot more indie e-books. I also practice a variety of martial arts, which I class as book research if someone asks, and I hike and kayak around my home.
