Writing Wednesday: Daniel Hoy, Second Officer of the Kestrel

Daniel Hoy is a human, from Earth. He is of Asian descent, with a small lithe stature, and short cropped black hair. His family are Japanese, but moved to England when he was twelve. Despite the move, he was brought up with traditional Japanese values of honour and loyalty. Working for the Earth Alliance was all he ever wanted to do. It was a family tradition. His father served on the Harrier.

His parents are still at home, and he will have an arranged marriage to a woman, also from traditional family, so she will expect to stay at home and just wait for when he comes on leave. But will his experiences broaden his outlook and make him rebel against his tradition? Working for the Earth Alliance was all he ever wanted to do – it was a family tradition, his father served on the Harrier.

He studies martial arts because of his heritage, and when he fights he confuses opponents who are not used to his style of fighting. But he can be hotheaded and reckless, and has some maturing to do. When we first meet him he has been with Captain Martin for 3 years and was only made up to Second Officer 6 months before.


About Ann Marie Thomas

Married since 1974, Christian since 1986, 4 children, 4 grand children, disabled with fibromyalgia but was working almost full time until a stroke in May 2010 changed my life completely. Writing poetry and making up stories since I was a child, I only started to write seriously when my children were grown. My main ambition is to write science fiction, but along the way I got distracted by local history and poetry about my stroke. Taking early retirement gave me the chance to concentrate on my writing. My book, Alina, The White Lady of Oystermouth, was published in print and ebook at Easter 2012. The success of Alina led to the publication of Broken Reed: The Lords of Gower and King John in September 2013, and The Magna Carta Story at Easter 2015. I am still writing science fiction - a series of novels called Flight of the Kestrel. For all my author news, see me author blog at www.annmariethomas.me.uk
