  • Speaker at Novacon 50



I've done public speaking for all ages for many years.

Speaking topics have included travel, different cultures, marine biology, creation care, science, writing fiction and settling the open ocean.

I was asked to be one of two 'science speakers' at Novacon 50, November 2021. Yvonne R., organiser for the event said afterwards:

"I invited Steve Holloway to present our Saturday morning science talk at Novacon 50. It was everything I had hoped for; easy to understand and fascinating for people who have an interest in science. The feedback that I received from our members was that it was most enjoyable and the photographs and pictures enhanced the experience. I would heartily recommend Steve’s talk."

In December 2021, I spoke to a group of 8-11 year old kids in the Potential Plus program. Jenifer N., the organiser, said of the time:

"I am so pleased how it went yesterday. The children were intrigued and totally absorbed. I genuinely think you have made them think in a new way, combining research, a love of nature and imagination. They will have a lot to tell their parents over Christmas. Thank you for all that you put into it."

I travel often as part of my mariculture consultancy, and so would be willing to consider travel to other countries.


Books by Steve Holloway

After earning a degree in Aquatic Biology from the University of California, Santa Barbara, Steve Holloway worked in research and development , taking part in mariculture activities around the world. Steve and his family now live in England, where he consults for a Christian charity. Pelagia is his first book with Lion Fiction.

Pelagia - Between the Stars and the Abyss

Former special forces agent turned particle physicist Ben Holden is on the run. The New Caliphate will stop at nothing to get their hands on his wife’s scientific research, which is believed to hold the key to unleashing chaos in the West and advancing their cause. But in reality it’s Ben’s biometrics that have the potential to unlock the information they so desperately need. Within the oceanic world of Pelagia, in the year 2066, Ben finds sanctuary among the sea settlers of the South Pacific Pelagic Territory, but his respite is short-lived.
