(?   -    ) UK author with his brother Marcus Wearmouth of the Activation sequence of Near Future post-Disaster thrillers beginning with First Activation (2011), set initially in a New York dominated by Zombie-like minions of a tyrannical organization bent on reshaping America. Protagonist duties are shared by two brothers. His Critical sequence of Alien Invasion thrillers with Colin F Barnes, beginning with Critical Dawn (2014), sets the initial invasion in the past, and depicts a more or less contemporary world in sudden upheaval as the potential conquerors begin to implement their plans.

A solo singleton, Colin's Prison (2013), is a Satirical portrait of Homo sapiens caught in the terrible sway of Religion. The protagonist of Sixth Cycle (2014) with Carl Sinclair awakens from Suspended Animation into a Ruined Earth landscape pockmarked with medieval strongholds; he must learn to cope. The protagonist of Sequence (2015 ebook) must also deal with an inimical world. The Awakened series opening with Awakened (2018) with James S Murray is Horror set in the Near Future. [JC]
