This book project will begin around the time of the specialist meeting “Forming and Exploring Habitable Worlds“. To deliver this challenging and exciting project, I have gained a provisional agreement with the specialist series of a university press (more details will follow). 


Further to those listed above additional academic and popular science / communication book projects are under development.

It is always important to give back. Should the published books prove successful my intention is that any revenues will seed a charitable trust with the specific purpose of supporting outreach to-, and research and higher education opportunities for-, promising young people of low-income and non-traditional backgrounds who have interests in planetary science. This nucleus may grow if philanthropic donors are then engaged to further help in proactively addressing inequalities.
