Hi, I’m Greg Mutton. I live on the mid north coast of New South Wales, Australia in a quiet bay-side village with my wife and our 2 cats.

It feels great to have the opportunity to finally start getting my stories out of my head and onto the page where I can share them with others. If I’m totally honest, I began writing 30+ years ago, but the serious stuff started happening in 2016.

I have spent most of my working life in engineering and management and, when faced with being forced to retire (medically) I needed an outlet. I began writing in earnest, and in 12 months had a manuscript to send to an editor. The first response was “it’s too long and should be a trilogy”. Another year later and Chronicle of the 12th Realm was born.

 I like to write about people who are forced to tackle situations – people just like you and I who rise to the challenge. I believe that no matter how advanced, no matter what technology we invent, human beings will always define their existence by their actions, both individually and collectively.

I don’t have superheroes (I’ve never actually met any) but I explore the real physical and metaphysical abilities people have. I take examples from life – emotions, love, despair, romance – and infuse these into my characters and plots. I enjoy using literary license to enhance my stories, design alien species, and describe future technologies. After all, I am a science fiction writer.

I hope you enjoy reading my books and, being part of this journey with me.

The possibility of settling a 30 year feud between two brothers starts the adventure. As Aaron Abraham and his stunning new first officer Petra Mannix head to Earth for a family reunion, their ship is attacked.
They are thrust into a multi-dimensional conflict and Aaron and Petra become a formidable team.

Great balance of action to characterisation

I enjoyed this story from the beginning. The characters are believable and engaging. It’s a refreshing change to have characters who are neither total misfits in society nor superheros with no faults whatsoever. With the story-line developing well and the right amount of action, this is an enjoyable read. (Michelle)

A good read

I really enjoyed this book. I found it an easy read with good character development. The author knows his subject and really tells the story in a way that takes us to a time in the future while keeping a thread to the present day. This is obviously the first in a series of books and I’m looking forward to reading the next book in the series. (Robyn)

Well paced – I loved it!

‘I liked that the pace of the characters and their relationships wasn’t too fast plus the setting of the story is great! Loved Petra; could really imagine her. And the you-beaut ship, all those upgrades they got later in the book – how lucky – like upgrading your 4WD!

I could see that there is conflict building. There’s a dark plot going on in the background– that kept me interested. Mondrac was an interesting character- wasn’t quite sure of him at first. Whose side was he on I wondered?

It’s easy reading, not too drawn out. I loved it! Now I can’t wait for book 2! – (Dave)
