If you could go back in time and undo one mistake from your past, what mistake would you undo?
Submitted by Los Angeles Style Salope.

If I could go back in time and undo one mistake from my past, it would be writing Dragon Line ten years ago when I first planned the novel, instead of shelving the plan and leaving it to gather dust. Then again, I do think the new version is a lot better. Even though I'm not sure if it will get published now, I'm sure as eggs that it probably wouldn't have done then! Originally, the novel was going to be set against the backdrop of a comet impact. Frankly, I think that sort of thing is now a bit 'old hat' (think 'Armageddon', 'Deep Impact' etc). I reckon the issues of Global Warming and Peak Oil are more relevant and more likely 'threats', though I do feel as though the jury is still out as to whether these things will actually happen. After all, the purpose of my book is not to debate whether they will occur, just to explore what it would be like if they come to pass (in the worst case scenario of course!) There's also a few other things in the story which give it added interest, on top of these current 'hot' topics. I hope you enjoy reading the book if (and maybe when) it gets published!


About Owen Law

My pen-name is ‘Owen Law’ (real name: Nicholas Davies.) I’m a science fiction writer specialising in dystopian/apocalyptic visions of the future. I’m from Shropshire, England (on the borders with Wales) and I’m in my forties. I have a background in public services and training. I’ve been working on my first novel, Dragon Line, since 2008. I’ve also written several short stories, one of which you can find on this blog (‘Matilda Leviathan‘). I now reside on the border of Shropshire and Wales, and my interests include writing (of course!), current affairs and environmental issues.
