by Geoff O’Callaghan ISBN 13: 9781846960119 Published: FEB 2006 Pages: 120 Description Tektite Steven Marshal, and his little brother, Frankie, is in a loving family. Tragedy strikes, when a cycling accident renders Frankie brain injured and comatose. Graham Marshal, a geologist, gives Frankie a tektite – a small meteor found in Australian deserts. The tektite contains an alien life form, Tek, who is a magical plasmoid, able to take on any form. Tek flows into Frankie, and heals his wounds. Normally, Tek appears as a small boy, and he joins Steven and Frankie in their games and at school. Tek’s existence is discovered by the press, and the family has to flee in order to protect Tek from a desperate public, and corporate criminals, anxious to get control of Tek and his healing powers. Tek, Steven, and Frankie flee to a huge meteorite crater in order to take Tek back to his family of plasmoids. One step ahead of the corporation, Tek uses his magic to fly the boys to the crater. There, the aliens manage to summon their mother ship and leave Earth. The boys, still magical, head for home. About the Author Geoff was born in Jersey, then under German occupation, during World War II. Soon after the war, his family moved to Brisbane, Australia. He was educated at All Souls’ School, Charters Towers – a rather traditional boarding school after the English style. What knowledge one didn’t learn through the ears was well and truly belted in through the rear end, complete with blood blisters. His first contact with the cane was for not running around a sports oval fast enough. He now prides himself on a complete disinterest on sports and knows nothing about cricket. This led to his creative and artistic sides developing. He had a way with words, and was a skilled debater. After secondary school, he took to teaching, graduated, and then obtained a Post Graduate Diploma in Aboriginal Education. For the next thirty years, he lived with remote aborigines in the Great Western Desert, firstly as a primary school teacher, and later as a School Principal and Administrator. During this time, he took up writing, mostly short stories and film scripts. It was a good way to while away lonely hours in the desert evenings. Child welfare was another interest. Juveniles who committed offences were kept in adult prisons. Some of the kids were as young as nine years of age. Geoff fought hard to get decent juvenile facilities built for them, and also did lot of research into mental illnesses in Children. While taking a rest from the Desert, Geoff worked with the Education Department as a District Guidance Officer. He was responsible for getting educational services to handicapped children across the outback. While on Long Service leave in Cairns, his family home, he met up with his old geography teacher, Kevin Burry, who was bringing Trinity Anglican School to fruition. Kevin became ill with brain tumors, and the Bishop of North Queensland appointed Geoff as the voluntary acting principal to bring the school on line, so Geoff spent his vacation from teaching as principal of one of Queenslands largest schools. Returning to the Northern Territory, Geoff was asked to write 13 episodes of “The Jabiru Trail” for the North Australian Film Corporation, and created the initial stories for “Police Rescue”. He also wrote “Extinct, but Going Home” for Humpty Doo Productions. Retiring from Government service, he founded “Young Actors World” to teach kids to act for commercials and feature films. He also took up advertising and ran “Top End Fliers” – one of the largest advertising distributors in the Northern Territory.
