“Epic SciFi on Extraordinary Worlds”


Welcome to the novels and thoughts of John Frank Marshall – author of over 10 SciFi and Urban Fantasy epics. My writing blends magic and science, with an environmental backdrop that holds a mirror to our own world.

Like many budding writers I have to work full-time, so I do most all of my creative work whilst commuting and that suits me well. I have yet to write a train-themed novel, but I can see that happening…

I am proud to be a client of the John Jarrold Literary Agency. Thank you for your wise words, John. Thanks also to the talented photographer and digital artist Thomas Budach for the illustrations on this site and to Nicola Wells for the image on the home page.
