Coals of Fire
A new dawn is here... The Sinless One is dead, killed by one of His own. Britain is just beginning to climb out of the Dark Age created by the Sinless One after the man-made plague swept the world. But the clean simplicity of a dictator's society rapidly complicates when the restraints (and the secret police) are removed. All the suppressed anger, hatreds, perversions, all can boil up once again, and now there's little to stop them. Society was broken, deliberately, and the architects of the new are not always visible. Everyone, no matter what their public persona, has their own interests at heart, so it's rebuilding whilst balancing on a tight-rope. Oh, and there's someone sawing at the tight-rope... The journey into the light has only just begun...

About Hermione Heppel
Hermione Heppel was born in Edinburgh in 1953 to a Navy family who happened to be stationed on the Clyde at the time, and subsequently moved to Cornwall. Her background is in physics and philosophy, based on a burning curiosity about how the world works and a basic intolerance of ambiguity. She also completed a PhD in Cybernetics in 1986. She has no coherent career to point to, but worked as an engineer in a telephone exchange after the physics degree, a self-employed gardener when the boys were at school, and more recently a technical author in telephony software user interfaces. She wrote a website on depression in 2000, and developed the 'BROH trick', which helped a lot but didn't answer the basic question: am I spiritually disabled? She was finally diagnosed as an Aspie in 2012, her sixtieth year, and a lot of things fell into place. She enjoys gardening, scuba diving and making things out of wood in her home workshop.
