Today I am joined by science fiction author Peter Cawdron. Peter’s new book Retrograde released today and he was kind enough to come talk about the new book, his interesting journey to becoming a writer, what role science plays in his books, finding clever ways to engage readers, whether his books are connected, what it was like launching a writing career during the Kindle revolution, and much more.

Peter is an Australian science fiction writer, specialising in hard science fiction.
Hard science fiction is a misnomer as far as categories of literature go, as it sounds harsh and difficult to understand, but that is far from reality. Hard science fiction is simply plausible science fiction, fiction that is written in such a way as it conforms to the known laws of science, and that makes it more interesting, as there’s no magic wand the protagonist can wave to get out of trouble. Peter’s forays into hard science fiction could best be described as informative science fiction or enjoyable science fiction.
Peter is a fan of such classic science fiction writers as Philip K. Dick, Arthur C. Clarke and Michael Crichton and their influence on his style and story lines is readily apparent. You can follow Peter on Facebook or Twitter or find him posting some interesting tidbit on his blog http://thinkingscifi.wordpress.com/
