When the child of Rab’s adopted son disappears and the Kun’s settlement comes under siege, an unlikely friend surfaces and events are set in motion that will shatter perceptions and radically shift the course of the future.
Shaune Lafferty Webb was born in Brisbane, Australia. Her father was an amateur astronomer and her eldest brother, an avid science fiction reader, so perhaps it was inevitable that she developed an early enthusiasm for writing speculative fiction.
After obtaining a degree in geology from the University of Queensland, Shaune subsequently worked in geochemical laboratories, exploration companies, and, while living in the United States, at a multinational scientific institute involved in exploration beneath the ocean floors.
Her short stories have appeared in AntipodeanSF, The Nautilus Engine, Blue Crow Magazine, and The Vandal and her novels, ‘Bus Stop on a Strange Loop’ and ‘Balanced in An Angel’s Eye’, were released in 2011 and 2012, respectively. ‘Once a Dog’, an anthropomorphic tale, was voted runner-up for the 2018 Ursa Major Award in the category of Best Novel.
‘Cold Faith’ and its sequel, ‘Faithless’, are the first and the second books in The Safe Harbour Chronicle, a trilogy released by Hague Publishing.
Shaune lives in Brisbane with her husband, a research scientist, and a pair of wayward canine companions.
