About the Author

Photo of sci-fi author Jim CostelloScotsman Jim Costello’s writing draws on his interesting and varied career to create rich, compelling reading.

Reinventing himself many times, he has worked in psychiatric nursing, the Royal Navy, gents’ outfitting, the civil service, and political campaigning and fundraising. As election agent and a senior party executive, he has worked with many well-known Cabinet Ministers, MPs, MEPs and Members of the House of Lords.

After leaving politics, Jim retrained as a driving instructor and enjoyed many happy years getting hundreds of people of all ages through their driving tests. He has quite a few interesting tales to tell about that.

After suffering a stroke, Jim completed a 1,400 mile walk for the NHS. Now he is enjoyed a well-earned retirement but is still as active as ever in his local community. You just can’t keep a good man down for long.

Jim has always had a love of the sea and of all things maritime. Technical details and knowing exactly how thins work has always fascinated him. His other passion is science fiction, and among his favourite authors are Isaac Asimov, Ray Bradbury, E Doc Smith and John Wyndham. He has been a fan of Star Trek since the very first series.

His other interests and hobbies include backgammon, fish keeping, gardening and photography.
