STEM Ambassador and Children’s Author Paul Ian Cross to attend Wyntercon VII.
Paul Ian Cross, author of the Amazon bestseller The Lights of Time, is attending Wyntercon VII in 2020. Paul works in clinical research (developing new medicines) and he has a PhD in science communication (presenting science to non-scientists).
Paul is also a STEM Ambassador and writes STEM-inspired fiction. He has a passion for introducing children to STEM subjects; particularly reluctant readers. By introducing science creatively, he aims to spark their interest, allowing them to gain confidence with their reading. As a previous reluctant reader himself, he understands how hard it can be. But it’s all about making reading fun and interesting!
Paul’s debut novel hit Number 1 on the Amazon bestseller lists for teen science fiction in the UK, Canada and Australia in 2019. The Lights of Time is a science fiction thriller about Engella Rhys, a 17-year-old fugitive with a dangerous piece of experimental tech, who’s searching for her missing parents through time and space. The book has been well received by both young adults and older readers, who are loving this emotional and adventurous series debut. Paul is now writing the other two books in the series: The Space-Time Conspiracy and The Saviour from the Star.
