The SimCavalier Series

As blackmail and treachery unleash a storm of cybercrime, how many lives will be lost?

Cameron Silvera, aka the SimCavalier, is a hacker legend known for bringing systems back online, fast. When cyber criminals hold the world to ransom, the SimCavalier stops them in their tracks. But now she is their target, and she’s fighting for her life.

The Travels of Finch

Meet Finch. Cocktail lover, enthusiastic tourist, not yet wise to the ways of the galaxy.

Finch is a young avian on a mission to see the galaxy. There's plenty of danger out there on strange planets and in pirate-infested shipping lanes. Granny's old guide book from her travels a century earlier may help, or it could lead Finch into mortal peril.

Praise for the SimCavalier series

The writing is beautiful, clear and engaging. It has a twisting plot that keeps you hooked to the last and well drawn characters.

What a rush. This is a great story about the world of cybercrime and about how our future will look.

The Travels of Finch

A young avian is taking a rite of passage round the galaxy trip, following in the footsteps of their redoubtable grandmother. But it's not all plain sailing. Read the Finch tales in the Harvey Duckman Presents anthologies: Finch (Vol 5); Parrot Radio (Pirate Special); Firebird (Vol 8); The Eagle's Flight (Vol 9) and new adventures coming soon.

Finch first appeared in the introduction to a chapter in a serious book about blockchain and cryptocurrency. I needed an example of a space traveller arriving in port and buying a cocktail without any messing around in the interplanetary exchange booth. After racking my brains for an appropriate passage, I remembered I was a sci-fi writer, and wrote one myself. A few months later I found myself wondering what had happened to this little character, so I went to check on them. Since then, Finch has gotten into all manner of scrapes, and has emerged unscathed. One day they may get their own book. For now, enjoy discovering not only Finch but also the work of 50+ other talented writers in the sci-fi, fantasy, steampunk and horror genres in the Harvey Duckman anthologies.

An Accidental Author

Blogs, childhood fan fiction, business reports and text books - sure. Speculative scifi? Never.

The first SimCavalier novel came as something of a surprise, written after a friend suggested that cybersecurity might be less dry as fiction. Cameron Silvera and the Argentum Associates team burst into life in Bitcoin Hurricane.

Hacked Future and Tangled Fortunes followed, making up the Hacked trilogy, and Critical Nexus starts off a whole new story arc. Book five is due for release in early 2023.

Along the way, the wonderful team at Sixth Element Publishing launched the Harvey Duckman Presents anthologies, and there are eight more of my science fiction stories to discover in that series.
