“Sebastian’s Moon” is a story about Sebastian, whose little brother Riley passed away, so he thinks his brother lives on the moon. When Sebastian tells his mother that he misses his brother, she tells him that they will see him again one day. With the help of his friends and the aid of a shooting star, Sebastian embarks on an adventure of sending his stuffed brontosaurus and blanket to the moon so that his little brother isn’t lonely anymore, and making the promise to never forget Riley.




A Word from the Author

Author David Villanueva pictureSebastian’s Moon is about a boy’s adventure to send a gift to the moon. With the aid of a magical spider that spins a web trampoline, Sebastian jumps above the treetops to catch a shooting star as it soars towards the moon! Trying to catch a shooting star has never been more inspiring.

Sebastian’s Moon was inspired when a teacher had her class write author David Villanueva Jr. a letter on what they wished for. A boy wrote that he “wished for the moon” because his brother had passed away, and he thought he went to live on the moon.

New Hampton is bloodthirsty. The streets are a cesspool. Greed and corporate necessity rule the overcrowded city.

A mysterious doctor, his young protĂ©gĂ© and a monstrous enforcer are playing gods, their wanton destruction going unchecked. The city’s Mayor seeks vengeance and believes the doctor’s work is the key to achieving redemption. These men will change the city forever, for better or worse remains to be seen.

Crime is rife on the streets and only a few brave, have-a-go heroes, seem willing to plunge themselves into the depths of depravity to intervene and, ultimately, save the city from forces it is seemingly oblivious to.

A handful of extraordinary individuals must decide where they fit in within the changing landscape of the indomitable city of New Hampton. Run? Hide? Fight? The ramifications of their decisions will echo throughout the city.

New Hamptoners look out for number one, slaves to the omnipresent man. Can the city survive this maelstrom or will the meddling powers-that-be doom everyone…

Q – So, what makes the Government Rain Mysteries special?

I’ve always enjoyed reading dark, mysterious books that leave me desperate for answers, and the Government Rain Mysteries are my interpretation of the macabre, urban, mystery genres.

I’ve forever been engrossed with science fiction that touches on the unexplainable, that baffles, intrigues and gets you turning to the next page hoping to find the answers. With The Government Rain Mysteries, I hope to leave the reader puzzled, gripped and, potentially, a little uneasy and questioning. How is that possible? Why are they doing that?

The Government Rain Mysteries are a brutal look at an urban setting with gruesome science fiction thrown in to leave the reader confused, gripped and potentially a little scared…

Know More

Prior to the Second World War, Japan and Australia had been successful trading partners, but after Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbour, Australia was soon at war with Japan. Various attacks by Japan soon followed and the citizens of Australia became afraid and were ready to bolt inland from the coastal regions. In 1942, General McArthur set up his headquarters for the Pacific in Brisbane and, as a result, the city needed a civilian population to ensure the smooth operation of its essential services. Due to its proximity to the Pacific battlefronts, it was a crucial geographic point for resupplying troops in battle – from both sides of the war. A plan was soon hatched to make newsreel films and articles that would not only reassure Australia’s civilians that they would be safe from Japanese threat, but, at the same time, they would also be leaked to the Japanese in an effort to convince them that Brisbane was too difficult a city to invade. The Ministry Communications Unit chronicles the creation and development of the special public relations unit that created those movies and articles.

It is also about adventure, romance, glory and also personal sacrifice. The Ministry Communications unit, tells the tale of how the unit developed along with the interactions of people causing interest and romances to begin. But nothing in the path of love can run smoothly and as the young men and women become romantically involved they then become shocked by the horrific hospital boat sinking.



A Word from the Author

author Gordon smith pictureThe Ministry Communications Unit was a fictional unit of the Australian defence force during World War 2. Although it may have been fictional, it could possibly be real.

The story is one about the men and women who were in this unit and the work they undertook. They were to make newsreel shorts to be shown to the population to give confidence that an invasion by the Japanese would be too difficult and therefore no invasion would take place.

Romanced developed between some of the unit’s members and you will be taken into their intimate thoughts.

When a Japanese submarine sinks the hospital ship Centaur, just off the Caloundra Coast everyone in unit realises that war is very close.

The husband of a team member goes missing when the flight from England crashes in the Indian Ocean. She then throws herself into new tasks and gains many accolades both as an interviewer as well as a person.
After the war is over the unit disbands, but are employed by a major Hollywood studio to make movies in Australia.

This story has it all! Adventure, Romance, Weddings, and intrigue. There is even an unexpected battle scene.

Although a work of historical fiction, The Ministry Communications Unit is a very successful story. The plot is well conceived, the characters’ actions seem fitting for the time, and the background of the war provides an easily reachable and acceptable scenario for this story.
