About After the End

There are few things that are considered in science-fiction as much as events which lead to the end of the world. After the End features ten short stories from author Sharon Ruth Parkinson which explore life in post-apocalyptic worlds.

In Mutation, mutated slaves are willing to do anything to save their race. As technology replaces humanity, the Technophobes are born.  When the universe gets Sucked In, a young couple discover the meaning of love.

From Earth, through space, time and even reality, humanity and the loss of it will answer the question, “What happens after the end?”

About Sharon Ruth Parkinson

sharon-parkinson

I once read a book… It was called “Triplanetary” by EE “Doc” Smith and from that day on I was completely hooked on Sci-Fi. I was about ten, and my imagination had been fired and I began putting those imaginings into words. My grandparents fostered my love of words by collecting all their envelopes (way before e-mail was a reality), and giving them to me to open up and use as scrap paper when I stayed with them during summer holidays. A passion was born.

It wasn’t until I was in my forties and self-publishing became a reality that I decided to publish, starting with my anthology Possibilities on Lulu.com in 2006, and then my NaNoWriMo entrant, CODDS  was later published (I have since pulled CODDS since it needs some serious editing).

My main love is still Sci-Fi Fantasy, but I have discovered a delicious addiction to flash fiction, thanks to the Jozi writers and our WhatsApp group. My other passion is NaNoWriMo, which I attempt every year, not always succeeding, but enjoying the challenge it offers. And I have done all this while raising four children! I am busy with several novels, short stories and series at the moment, so like my Facebook page for updates
