Tobias Roote began writing while recuperating from an illness. He moved to the island of Corfu, where he had time on his hands and a wild imagination that needed an outlet. His enthusiastic writing evolved quickly into an 80,000 word book that although never got published, provided a springboard into several other novels. 'Mercury's Secret', then his best-selling 'The Pattern Ship' followed by 'POD', a sequel.
Three years later and over 20,000 books sold, Tobias now travels around Europe looking for inspiration for yet another Sci-Fi story. At 62 years young, with over 50 years of reading science fiction behind him, Tobias knows that his readers like fast-paced action filled plots with plenty of space drama and alien battle scenes.
Roote, who views himself as a post-humanist, delivers all of this in spectacular fashion. Never one to follow rules, his own sense of wonder at what the future holds, drives his imagination to consider 'what if' scenarios involving humans and artificial intelligence.
