Sarah : The Empress of the Galaxy
It's Sarah Penworthy's sixteenth birthday! The sun is shining, the school bell is ringing, she's got a birthday party to prepare and there's that boy she really wants to ask out on a date... But all of Sarah's plans are shattered when a strange silver ball comes crashing through her bedroom window. The ball tells her his name is Robot Holmes, that he's come from a starship orbiting planet Earth, and that he's on a mission to find Sarah and take her away with him. In a flash Sarah is beamed aboard the starship Hound of Love, and as she is introduced to the ship's robot crew, she quickly realises the unbelievable truth: she has been abducted by aliens! The Hound of Love's engines are fired to maximum, and so begins an incredible journey across the stars- a journey which will change Sarah's life forever. For faraway on an alien world, at the heart of a great intergalactic civilisation, an old Emperor lies dying, and a throne stands empty. In the final seconds of his life, using all that remains of his strength, the Emperor tears off his life-support mask and whispers the name of the one, the one being in all the universe, who must follow him. The name he whispers is "Sarah Penworthy..." "Sarah: The Empress of the Galaxy" mixes wit, imagination and originality to create a fast-paced and exciting outer space adventure story, which will appeal to science fiction readers of all ages.

About J H Barron
J.H. (Joseph Henry) Barron was born in Kent in 1984, the youngest son of a scientist and a teacher. He developed an appetite for reading and storytelling from an early age and during his life he has written numerous short stories, plays and scripts for TV, film and radio. He was educated at the University of East Anglia from 2003-2006, where he attained a 2:1 degree in English Literature. It was during this time that he honed his writing skills by joining the University's Creative Writing Society, and had several short stories and poems published in "Concrete," UEA's campus newspaper. Shortly after graduating in 2006 he started his first novel, "Sarah: The Empress of the Galaxy," a science fiction adventure story aimed at a young adult audience. "Sarah" finally saw completion six years later in 2012 and was published as an independent ebook the year after. It was first published via Amazon's Kindle Direct Publishing and made it into the "Top 100 Paid" chart for children's science fiction. J.H. Barron lives and works in London. His current writing projects include a picture book for very young children and a sequel to "Sarah." He is an avid reader of all types of literature and would love to hear your thoughts on his writing. You can contact him at his Twitter account @JH_Barron.
