About

 

Hello, my name is Alexander Shaw

I live in Lincolnshire, England with my wife Sharon and daughter Lyra. 

After hosting the School of Movies podcast for many years, going deep into what makes stories truly great and memorable, I started applying what I'd found to my writing. The result is the New Century Multiverse.

I began adapting the first book into an audio drama before it had even been published, and it became a long-term, ongoing project with my voice actors. It is released episodically as an evocative, cinematic podcast, and each time a story completes the novel and audiobook will follow.

The voice cast include Laureta Sela, Maureen Foley, Theo Leigh, Sharon Shaw, Spencer Leeb, Matt Wardle and myself, along with various guest voices. It has become quite an extraordinary experience to work so closely with these amazing, talented people over the years, as well as our artist, Antonio Torresan. Through their voices and his drawings these characters are brought to vivid life, going far beyond the words I write. 

My long-term plan is to keep this rhythm of podcasts, books and audiobooks, grow our audience and expand into other media, as more people share and explore the many worlds of New Century.
