Acts of Life (Paperback)
In order to make this movie, first Jake must survive. Jake Elloway has a glittering career as one of Earth's most celebrated vidicom movie stars and enjoys his privileged lifestyle to the full. An arrogant megalomaniac, he is handsome and talented, but selfish and indulgent. Jake reluctantly agrees to spend three months living and working aboard an inter galactic freightliner as research for a new role, but finds few friends amongst the crew. Life aboard the Mayan Queen quickly proves to be anything but comfortable, and when events suddenly take a dangerous turn, he realises not everyone on board is keen to protect him. With space pirates hot on their heels, Jake and his friends make a desperate bid for freedom, and find themselves in a new and terrible nightmare.
About the Author
Merita King has loved the science fiction and fantasy genre in both books and movies since she was a young child. She has been greatly inspired by years of watching movies and reading books and has wanted to make a contribution to this genre for many years. Her stories all contain a spiritual thread as she believes that spirituality is universal and crosses all boundaries. She believes that the creative process is largely intuitive and can be very effectively blocked by too much pre-planning. "Plot lines, characters and events all come to me intuitively," she says, "and this makes the act of writing a constant pleasure." She lives alone, with her vivid imagination, in Hampshire, UK.
