Publication day for Refraction - new scifi novel by Terry Geo

Good afternoon! 

Refraction, a new sci-fi fantasy novel by TV director, playwright, musical producer and now author, Terry Geo, officially launches today. Yorkshire-born and raised (Wakefield) and now living in London with his new husband, Terry is available for media interviews about his new book and how he went from writing and directing his first play at 11, to becoming the the youngest TV director in the country age 16, to writing musicals, editing national magazines and touring the world as an actor, to achieving his life-long goal of publishing his first sci-fi fantasy novel!

Refraction starts at the end - with a death, then life. We have a paperback copy here with your name on it (if you'd like to call in a copy?) and we can happily connect you with Terry who will be in London and Yorkshire over the coming weeks at various book signings and media interviews. 

I'm pasting the press release below and more info can be found in the online press folder:


Helen Lewis 

Director - Literally PR 



By Terry Geo

Most stories start at the beginning; this one begins at the end. At least for Maria. Her sudden death sends shockwaves through her family and pushes her grieving mother to the very brink of insanity. After exhausting every avenue conventional medicine has to offer, Maria's father, Henry, brings together the world's greatest minds in the hope of carving out a new path. Months pass, and as Henry watches his beloved Elena slowly drift away, he begins to lose faith. It is only then that a solution presents itself. A discovery so momentous, it saves Elena and reveals the most important scientific and technological breakthrough in modern history.

Silicate is founded; a privately funded facility which delves deeper into the human mind, able to discover answers to questions we are yet to ask. Securing Silicate's secrets becomes of utmost importance; even after treating hundreds of patients, the public are still unaware of the wonders and terrifying reality Silicate has unearthed . . .

The world you know is only half the story.


About the author

Born in Derbyshire, raised in Yorkshire, resides in London, Terry learned from a young age that he was different from his peers. He preferred the company of girls over boys, didn't like sports and would write at every opportunity. He was bullied throughout his school life both physically and verbally and had to deal with the cruelty of others from an early age.

Terry Geo wrote and directed his first play at age eleven. At sixteen, he started work in television, writing scripts and becoming the youngest director in the country. Terry applied for a job while taking his final exams and started work in television the week after he finished school. For the first time in his life, he found a world where he could shine and be accepted for who he was. He came out as gay to his parents the following week and never again hid his sexuality from anyone. At seventeen he became the youngest director in the country, producing a light entertainment show for Yorkshire Television. After a short stint in a boyband, Terry went back to writing, editing two national publications. He toured the world as an actor, moved to London and in 2017, wrote and directed a musical for the London stage. A year later, Terry married Ken, the love of his life, in London. After their honeymoon in Thailand, he returned to a book he had started some years before. In January 2019, his cat Megara sadly passed away. This hit Terry hard and in memorial to her, he wrote her into the book he was writing. She is now a part of Terry's debut published novel, Refraction.
