Eaton Krone is a revolutionary inventor with a full head of hair, impeccable handwriting and only one wish in life: that at least one of these things could be true in some alternate reality. In this reality, Eaton is a sci-fi satire author, which will have to do.

Over two decades ago, Eaton hit pause on his planned writing career to slave away in the fields of journalism, PR/communications and advertising – the latter devouring three quarters of his career-history pie chart along with a sizeable chunk of his sanity. He’s done nearly everything copy- and language-related, from writing and editing to translation and proofreading across a wide spectrum of media. His journalism and copywriting qualifications are in a box somewhere.

In 2017, after being retrenched for the fourth time, Eaton loosened his stuck pause button to write his debut LightSide novel, A Life Spectacular, which was released in 2018. His second novel, Happy Meals, will soon be available at a click, tap or thought.*

Although he’s pleased to continue his journey as an author, Eaton denies being the author of his own life, as it’s riddled with way too many errors and scenes that cannot be edited or (preferably) deleted. As a cancer survivor with the superhuman ability to wiggle his ears (without touching them, mind you), Eaton spends his free time reading, gaming and dreaming of getting a kayak for him and his girlfriend, with whom he lives in Johannesburg, South Africa. His mind lives somewhere else.

 

* The latter method might not be available at present but, for the time being, clicking and tapping remain perfectly viable options.
