In short, A.C. Hadfield is me.
It didn’t start out that way, though.
A few years ago, while I was writing post-apocalyptic fiction with my Code Breakers and Last Flotilla series, I had an idea for a space opera series. I worked with a co-author on it. Because we weren’t sure whether it would work out well, we decided to use a pen name to differentiate it from our other works.
My co-author and I published three books under the Hadfield moniker (the Carson Mach series). They did great, but for business reasons, we decided to go in different directions. It wasn’t acrimonious in the slightest; we decided to split our shared backlist, and I took control of the Hadfield name and books.
I then added three more volumes—Two Blackstar Command volumes and another called Vanguard Rising. As of Feb 2021 there are plans for a third Blackstar Command book to come out in the summer and perhaps even a couple more Vanguard Rising books later in the year if all things go well.
Moving on, I shall be keeping the A.C. Hadfield branding for all space opera books. Everything else will be under my name. That said, I’ll be using the same social media and newsletter for everything so as long as you’re signed-up, you’ll get any updates for Hadfield books.
