Casual Loops is a podcast created by science fiction authors Darren Wearmouth & Carl Sinclair.

Darren & Carl sparked up a friendship over a shared history in technology, world travel, food and sports which led to them writing the bestselling sci-fi novel SIXTH CYCLE together.

As they were already casually discussing science fiction and speculating about mysterious events, unexplained phenomena, and the occasional kebab, they’ve decided to record it for readers of their books, and anyone with an interest in the subjects they cover.

Darren Wearmouth spent six years in the army before pursuing a career in corporate technology. After fifteen years working for large telecommunications firm and a start-up, he decided to follow his passion for writing.

His first novel was the best-selling FIRST ACTIVATION that he later sold to Amazon’s publishing imprint, 47North in a two-book deal. THE INVASION TRILOGY and SIXTH CYCLE have subsequently also been Amazon best-sellers. His next release, AWAKENED, is through Harper Voyager in collaboration with James Murry of Impractical Jokers fame. Darren is a member of the International Thriller Writers Group and the British Science Fiction Association, and currently lives in Manchester, England.


Carl Sinclair worked in information technology, the food industry, and a decade in insurance before turning his attention to writing science fiction.

His first published novel SIXTH CYCLE was an Amazon bestseller. His second novel SHIFTING MATTER is due for release in late 2017.

Carl is currently living in Melbourne, Australia.
