After a decade of writing as Amy Gallow, thanks to my first publisher's insistence that only women could sell romance books, Eternal Press will release the first book under my own name, David Andrews and I admit to being excited.
A science fiction/adventure/romance about an immortal dynasty of telepaths and their opposition to tyranny in all its forms, I'm quietly proud of it.

Different ships- different tally bands

An old saying that is part of the culture of the Royal Navy and the Royal Australian Navy, and probably all the national navies that were once part of the British Empire. It acknowledges the cultural differences that can separate two identical ships in the same navy, part history, part personality, part circumstances.
"The First Born" is being published under my own name and that small difference has infected the whole process so far, giving it a different feel to the fourteen previous books under Amy Gallow.
It will be interesting to see how far the difference manifests itself, especially as I have four other books planned as David Andrews.
