About John Hindmarsh


I write science fiction and thrillers, sometimes with crossover. Well, you need a thrill in your SF and an occasional touch of science in your thrillers.

I worked for years in IT, wandering around the world as an independent contractor. In 2012 I moved to the High Sierra region of California where I’m writing full time. I could be hiking, kayaking, or skiing when I’m not writing.

I’m Australian – yay! However, my books generally are written with an American voice (well, I try), although I prefer to write British English. So I get mixed up. In any event, I claim aluminium is the correct word.

One of my books – Broken Glass – reached best-seller status on Amazon.com in May 2017 and I achieved an author rank of #8 on Amazon in Kindle eBooks > Science Fiction & Fantasy > Science Fiction. Broken Glass also reached best-seller status on Amazon UK in the same year. I’m proud of those rankings.

As of early 2018 I have written and self-published ten books. There’s a lot more on the way.

Let me know what you enjoy reading.
