Lucien Telford is a British-born, Canadian writer who burst onto the Science-Fiction Thriller scene with his multiple award winning debut novel, The Sequence, in 2021. The book showcases Telford's talented prose with a fast-paced style that keeps the reader turning the page. The Sequence, the first novel in a planned quadrilogy, explores emergent genetic technology, using themes of morality, global power, and how these emerging technologies affect the human condition.
During his continuing 31 year career in aviation, Lucien has traveled and adventured extensively around the globe. The Sequence, his first book, draws heavily on those experiences.
AWARDS and NOMINATIONS
"A complex, exciting, and intelligent thriller with compelling characters and ideas."
— Kirkus Reviews
"THE SEQUENCE is incredibly exciting, and Telford writes it compellingly and well. It’s almost cinematic in scope, with its taut dialogue, creative turns of phrase, and vivid scene descriptions that engulf the reader and draw them easily into this unsettled, unsettling new world."
— Jennifer Weatherly for IndieReader
"The Sequence is a gripping, flawlessly-paced, diverting, beautifully written action sci-fi thriller."
— P.L. Stuart, author of A Drowned Kingdom
"Absolutely brilliant in parts, (many parts), so much so that it’s hard to believe this is the work of a first time author. The story line is multi-layered, fiendishly ingenious, and peppered with such cool tech gear, holograms, vehicles, implants and gadgets that I couldn’t stop thinking what a terrific movie it would make.
