Author Biography

Brett Armstrong, author of the award-winning novel, Destitutio Quod Remissio, started writing stories at age nine, penning a tale of revenge and ambition set in the last days of the Aztec Empire. Twenty years later, he is still telling stories though admittedly his philosophy has deepened with his Christian faith and a master’s degree in creative writing. His goal with every work is to be like a brush in the Master artist’s hand and his hope is the finished composition always reflects the design God had in mind. He feels writing should be engaging, immersive, entertaining, and always purposeful. Continually busy at work with one or more new novels to come, he also enjoys drawing, gardening, and playing with his beautiful wife and son.

Reviewed by Ray Simmons for Readers' Favorite

I love science fiction and fantasy. I am a Christian. I am sure many people, my mother first among them, think that I am not Christian enough. That is a matter of what you think the exact definition of the word Christian means. I like well written futuristic novels when they are told well. It is hard to find them. Many of them disappoint me, but I keep looking for that rare great one. I am happy to report that Day Moon by Brett Armstrong is a great science fiction tale for Christians. It did not disappoint me. It is book one of a trilogy, and I look forward to reading the next two books. Many Christians shy away from futuristic novels. Many are uneasy with looking at science and the future too closely. I am just the opposite. I want to know where God and science will take us.

Day Moon: Tomorrow’s Edge Book One by Brett Armstrong is exciting. It is thoughtful, and very well written. The plot makes sense and I didn't feel preached at or that I was being taught. And yet, I did get the point. That is great writing. But no novel will be good if you don’t have a hero that you can relate to. I related to Elliott. He is from the future, but he could have been born any time and I think he still would have been likable. His love and respect for his grandfather really spoke to me. Brett Armstrong paints his characters with bold strokes. If you like science fiction and love God, you will like Day Moon.
