(circa 1984-    ) Australian author whose Voidwitch Saga sequence, beginning with Killing Gravity (2017), mixes Equipoisally sf and fantasy modes in a Space Opera tale featuring a young woman who has been Genetically Engineered into a "voidwitch" whose powers are designed to make her into an augmented soldier with Superpowers. The narrative – in which she escapes the establishment in which she had been shaped, and hunts her hunters in the fringes of what may be a Galactic Empire – is virtuoso, though at times pell-mell. Eventually, in the company of her Mutant cat and a psychically damaged teenager, she finds the secret of her engineered origins.

Repo Virtual (2010), a singleton, is set in a Near Future "smart" City comprising an interwoven nest of real, "augmented" and Virtual Reality spaces, described in an easy-going Cyberpunk idiom; outside the walls, in a Game-World rendering of intergalactic space, a War rages. [JC]
