Who are TKB?
In short, we’re brothers and co-authors. We’ve been brothers for as long as we both remember and co-authors, well that’s a more recent development. We first put pen to paper, or rather pixels to Google docs, in February of last year.
My name is Rob, Robert or Bob, depending on who you ask, and on rare occasions Robs, but that’s strictly just to my mother, and that’s only when she’s feeling particularly moved or emotional. I’m the senior co-author of TKB, and by that I explicitly mean I’m the eldest member of our team of two. I have a degree and masters in psychology as well as a postgraduate diploma in statistics and have worked in the Health Service Executive here in Ireland for almost fifteen years.
My brother Matt is the other half of TKB and is the youngest of my three siblings. Matt has a science degree in addition to a degree in Model Making, Design and Digital Effects, and has more artistic creativity in his little fingers than I could ever dream to have. Matt has worked on a number of projects over the past few years, including being a part of the model making team for the 2014 film Dracula Untold. He also lectures part time at the Institute of Art, Design and Technology in Dun Laoghaire (not a typo, and pronounced Dun Leery, believe it or not). You can find out a little bit more about TKB on our About Us page.
What can you expect to find here?
We’ll have information and updates on our current and upcoming work and progress as well as details and links to our publications as they become available.
From time to time we’ll discuss themes and topics relating to the genre of Military Science Fiction. We’ll also review some of our favourite science fiction characters, novels and series, what we’re reading now, and what we think you’d like to read too.
What are we at right now?
We’re currently completing the self editing of our debut novel Quarry Turned, the first book of the Dominion Series, which will be hitting the manuscript critiquers/beta readers any time soon before final tweaks and editing take place. We’re also working on a short story entitled Morti, centered on one of the pivotal characters introduced in Quarry Turned.
