Imagine a mix of the later Harry Potter books, The Matrix and Jason Bourne films and the Supernatural T.V. series. Now step further into the dark. Twenty years ago, Jason's father ran from a hidden war against demons and the fanatical Brethren who summon them. However, his arcane powers were too valuable for either side to give up. After years in hiding from inhuman assassins, Jason's mother is killed and the hunt closes in. A terrifying new world opens up all around Jason - a grey world of demons, possessed innocents and secret societies. Amidst first love and betrayal in an isolated abbey, Jason must decide whether to defy his father and fully embrace his own supernatural powers or continue running away forever. Jason Willow is packed full of hard-hitting martial arts and gun action, suspense and tightly controlled powers. Family, friends and enemies are embroiled in complicated relationships as they lead us through the high-octane action sequences. This modern-day story plays out over such locations as a remote Scottish island, a high-tech abbey stronghold, a gang-controlled school and a hellish brewery town lost deep in the Yorkshire moors.--This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
Father of four and teacher of teenagers, Gareth has trained (badly) in various martial arts over the years and now enjoys the less painful pastimes of racquet sports, writing courses and critiques. Oh - family life is pretty good too!
Gareth has been writing fiction as a hobby for nearly thirty years. In November 2007, he printed and sold the first 500 copies of his Y/A supernatural action novel JASON WILLOW. Following very positive, yet constructive editorial advice from a number of sources, he worked on a shorter 2nd edition which was printed in 2009 after the 1st edition sold out. An e-book version for Kindle and other devices is also available.
Working as a secondary school teacher and living a busy family life makes writing time hard to come by. However, encouraged by a small but growing army of readers and some good reviews(http://theredbuttonpress.jimdo.com/reviews/), Gareth published the 2nd Jason Willow Book in the Winter of 2012. The final book in this trilogy will hopefully be released for Christmas 2013.
