It's the year 2025. A teenage boy accompanies his father into the Central London Floodzone for the first time. Warren Smith is excited about travelling into this dangerous, unfamiliar world to sell their farm products at a market stall.
Following a Climate Change event which resulted in a three metre sea-level rise, life in the various Floodzones of the planet is tough and uncompromising, but it has given rise to a hardened breed of humans, known as Floodlanders.
As the brutal tidal surge floods back in, tragedy strikes, and changes their lives forever.
Wayne Marinovich is an author and wildlife photographer who grew up on a farm in South Africa and spent most of his young life outdoors, learning and developing his passion for the natural world. When he was not fishing, bird watching, riding his bike or climbing trees, he was running around on top of the barn roof, fighting imaginary villains.
After a successful career as an IT consultant which saw him travel to all the places he loves writing about, he settled in the leafy county of Surrey, England where he now resides with his wife and fellow photographer, Anneli.
His passion lies with conservation and environmental issues which affect both humans and the natural world alike, and he is most happy photographing and writing about the planet's beauty and fragility.
Currently he is working on the Kyle Gibbs series, an environmental piece set in a future climate-changed world. The first three books in the series have been published and he is currently working on the fourth. Wayne is also working on a portfolio of environmental novellas and short stories, the latest release being, Floodlanders, a teenager's tragic journey in a flooded London.
