The novels I write are mostly in the Scifi and Fantasy genres, like the ones below. SIDESHOW ALLEY (Scifi) was written with the YA market market in mind, but would appeal to anyone who likes adventure and fast flowing action. The same applies to MYVANWY and the HOUSE of DRAGONS. (Fantasy) Enjoy.

SIDESHOW ALLEY, by KJ Sheerin


Colin and Tiddles are two unemployed youths from the suburbs. They are shanghaied along with others while at the local show and beamed aboard the Galactic Legion Carrier Redemption, tethered in the heavens above. The new recruits are fed, quartered and manipulated every step of the way. All whims are catered for including their curiosity, which builds daily.  Go aboard the Redemption to find out how it was done and then follow them as they are introduced to shipboard life and trained up to fulfill their roles within the legion. 

All good Sci-fi begins with extreme video game addicts like Colin and Tiddles.  Join them as they venture into unknown corners of the galaxy to defend it from those hell-bent on total galactic domination. It is a mix of intergalactic melodrama and game play, so strap on your proton blaster and check your flight path—Sideshow Alley is about to take you on a rocket ride.  C. Callaway

 MYVANWY and the HOUSE of DRAGON, by KJ Sheerin


All
of us have seen a rainbow, but there would only be a few who have seen where it ends. What is it that lies far out to sea where theseven colours hang suspended in the sky? Is it magic, or a pot of gold? Maybe even dragons

Through no fault of their own, Josh and Clare are set adrift and borne by the prevailing winds to a small island in Bass Strait, the home of two dragons. Despite helping the dragons in their hour of need the teenagers are held captive and grow together in a virtual paradise until they prove themselves once more, and are inducted into ‘The House of Dragon’. When Clare and Josh finally return home again, their parents are too blind to see that their children have changed forever …

The story is set in the current era, using Geelong and surrounds as a backdrop, along with the Furneaux Islands of Tasmania.

Against all Odds, by KJ Sheerin


Some of the pieces within reflect family or attachments, others Ken’s unique take on things, observations, or just pure flights of fantasy. Some too, may be as simple as memories of walking his beloved dog ‘Molly’.

KOI, a book of tanka

Tanka is a genre of classical Japanese poetry, with a history going back thirteen centuries. So naturally when it was introduced into the Geelong region in 2011, Ken joined other interested poets to become what was known as the Breathstream tanka group. A tanka, or Waka as it was kown, is a complete story in five lines, so it's easy to see why the genre has endured for so long.

 A follow on book from TULA, book one in the Rim Trader series. 

Rhuma is a native of Tyrus, a planet on the rim of the galaxy. She was caught up in the fighting there when pirates took over the Spaceport and nearby city, and lost the lower part of her left forearm in the mayhem that followed. Terry McKeag offered her passage to Earth, via the Red Star System, in order to get another one. However, the journey between Tyrus and Earth is fraught with danger and takes months to traverse. A lot can happen in that time. When Rhuma finally returns she is not the same person, and village life is the last thing on her mind.
