You’ll never think of Atlantis in the same way, ever again. Teenage author Neil Lee Thompsett has focused his special powers of observation and insight on this most enduring of human legends and created cultures, clothing, characters and entire civilizations that no-one has ever imagined before.
According to Thompsett, Atlantis didn’t sink - it is North and South America during the Ice Age. One part of Atlantis - the northern part, surrounded by melting ice - is ruled by Warrior Women, ten times stronger than men, who believe that males can only be slaves or playthings. In another part of Atlantis, in what is now South America, military men have created a vast empire with a high technology based on the energy given off by diamonds, and so must constantly search for new sources of the precious stones to keep their world going. They have conquered the world in this search and it is they who have built the pyramids all ver the world - a pyramid is a half-diamond shape and they were built to show the lfyng machines where to pick up the raw diamonds from each area.
This, incidentally, in Thompsett’s version, is waht gave birth to the legend of the fall of Atlantis - the Atlanteans, (The men of the Sud), had the technology to get to Europe when there were still mammoth and sabre-tooth cats roamign about, but the Europeans, most of whom stil lived in caves, did not have the technology to follow them back. So when the diamonds ran out, the people of Atlantis left and the primitive Europeans assumed their civilization sank and was destroyed. But, the simple truth was that they just had no more use for Europe. They had other problems to contend with.
Young Master Storyteller Neil Lee Thompsett creates these two totally different cultures and, true to his dark nature, immediately sets them on a collision course that can only result in the ultimate battle fo the sexes, at the dawn of time.
Although a total story in itself, this huge 514 page trade paperback volume is just Book One of Thompsett’s massive Atlantis Trilogy. Book Two and Three have already been written and will be released soon by Noggin Publishing.

Neil Lee Thompsett is not just a writer, he is truly a phenomenon. Like a Mozart or an Einstein, he has been quietly laboring away, from a very early age, to produce remarkably mature work without the need for a lengthy education in the field.
He has been writing stories since age 6 and at 12 years old had completed a full-length manuscript for a novel. It was published when he was 13 and still in Grade 8. This first novel, the dark 326-page Becoming Human, is an amazingly perceptive view of human nature from a child’s perspective. It has sold thousands of copies all over the world to readers of all ages and has become a cult classic novel that is said to be on the course of study in some high schools and universities.
At 14 Neil completed another novel - the definitive childs view of war - the 338-page Only Human, which has also been an underground hit among adventurous readers from New York to New Zealand.
At 16 years of age, Neil completed his latest work, the 1800 page No Man’s Land - a trilogy about Atlantis. Book One of this Trilogy has now been ublsihed and is now available.
Although still largely unknown and unheralded in the mainstream market, Neil remains undaunted and has forced himself to overcome the fearsome obstacles that his Learning Disability puts in his path and continues to write these dark and strangely compelling novels. He has a powerful urge to communicate his edgy visions to the world and continues to do so, even though he is not carried in major bookstore chains or reviewed by major media. Yet, pretty much from word of mouth alone, he has created a loyal fan base of thousands - from grandparents to kids - all over the world, who eagerly await every new book he puts out. Possibly because he touches a place deep inside them or perhaps because he writes like no-one else they’ve ever read before. It’s hard to explain his appeal.
One New York reviewer wrote that Neil had "devised an new style of writing; sharp. crisp images, like panels in a comic book - with just as much action." In a write up in a Hong Kong newspaper, the reporter said Neil’s books were "irritatingly compelling." And even Mr Sci-Fi himself, Forrect J Ackerman has written "Neil is that rare sort of fellow who only comes along once or twice in an entire generation - a natural born story-teller. An untaught spellbinder." And he was described as a "Young Genius" by psychologist Lee Travathan in her ground-breaking book "Rebel Writer".
Parents and teachers have reported that, possibly because he has a learning disability and suffers from reading problems himself, he really seems to re-invent the entire language every time he sits down to write and recreates it in a special way that kids and adults with reading problmes find very easy and exciting to read - in fact, for many kids and even some adults, Neils books are the first they have ever read all the way through.
In spite of not being carried by major bookstore chains and even though his books are not reviewed by the popular media, Nei goes on writing, starting out with truyly remarkable work and getting better and better every time out of the box. Which is, of course,t he mark of a true artist.From the Inside Flap:
Atlantis Like you’ve never imagined it before !
Warrior women, Ten times stronger than men in one corner.
Military Men With high tech weapons and low-life morals in the other.
The Ultimate Battle of the Sexes At the dawn of time, 15,000 years ago.
Master Storyteller Neil Thompsett takes a totally original look at this lost civilization and brings it to life in such detail and color, that you will never be able to think of Atlantis again without thinking of the characters, the cultures and the conflicts he has created in this remarkable saga.
