Ever had a secret so big that your very knowledge of it consumed you? Uma Jakobsdóttir has one. A huge one. And if it falls into the wrong hands, it could obliterate mankind…

A Rush of Green is the blog of thriller writer O.C. Heaton, author of The Human Race.

Born and bred in West Yorkshire, England, O.C. spent his childhood with his head stuck in books, looking for the adventure he craved but which was not to be found in the north of England.

He became a lawyer in New York City, representing sheiks and other high rollers. Real estate acquisitions proved unadventurous, but the profession’s disciplined research and obsession with detail became embedded in an already inquisitive mind.

O.C.’s relentless quest to understand how things work led him to the technology industry and a fascination with the past, present and future of human evolution.

In his novel The Human Race, O.C. explores the world of super computers and quantum physics.

“I wanted to make the impenetrable world of quantum physics understandable –the joke is that it isn’t, but for a few. So I chose the fiction route.”

O.C. returned to his home town, Leeds, where he now spends his time with his partner, two daughters, a black Labrador and a MIA hamster. He is currently writing the second book in his thrillogy.
