John Hindmarsh writes science fiction and thrillers, sometimes with crossover. Well, you need a thrill in your SF and an occasional touch of science in your thrillers. John originates from Australia, and now lives in the High Sierra region of California where he is writing full time. He could be hiking, kayaking or skiing, when he’s not writing.
John’s books generally are written with an American voice [well, he tries], although he prefers to write British English. So he gets mixed up. In any event, he claims aluminium is the correct word.
