More About the Author

Father of four and teacher of teenagers, Gareth has published two YA, paranormal action books in his JASON WILLOW series and hopes to release the finale in early 2015. He is also working on a children's multimedia book full of monsters and magic, a near-future, dystopian film script, a strategic card game and is ploughing through a copywriting diploma.

With so much bubbling around in his little head, Gareth managed to escape from teaching in September 2014 for a two-year shot at fame and fortune. You can read all about his world-shattering writing success (or otherwise) at http://tomdickandharryproject.blogspot.co.uk/

Gareth has trained (badly) in various martial arts over the years but nowadays, when not writing or doing family malarkey, he enjoys the less painful pastimes of racquet sports in sunny Hertfordshire, UK.

Review

"This exciting first novel is not for the faint hearted with menacing locations and action descriptions. It is a story of the struggle of a boy who has all the usual teen angst as well as having to deal with a family secret which catches up with him. Issues of bullying, violence, family loyalties, friendships and the battle between good and evil make this a fairly complex but exceedingly hard to put down novel..." --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
A sometimes dark but always surprising novel which made me want to keep reading. The characters are well constructed and believable and the action element keeps you on the edge of your seat. Even my mother loved it! Although the plot twists and turns the end is sufficiently open to make me want to know when is novel number 2 to be published?

Format: Paperback
On a surface level its a thrilling read about the main character Jason finding that he has incredible power and having to face the choice of following his destiny and the destiny of others before him to fight demons. However, if you are looking for a violent story of monsters and demons this is not for you...I'm not saying there is no excitement and action on the contrary there is a lot of tense moments throughout the duration of the book leading up to the final climactic ending, however, bloody violence plays a minor role in this book making it an ideal book for young readers (i'd say its a book for 10+) and adults alike. Therefore, I'd give it a 10/10 and recomend it to anyone.

Format: Paperback
I love a book that leaves me wandering "What the... How the..." about the author and how such scenarios and plots could ever have been thought up. This is one such book. The images created are so vivid you become part of the scenery and feel like you are only a few footsteps behind the action but can't quite reach out to stop the things you know are coming. There is nothing typical about this book, the badies get their fair share of success and the goodies also get their fair share of kicks in the face which leaves you shouting "noooooooo... you can't do that". I can't wait for the sequel, this is a teenagers book for adults, a must read by all over 12.

JASON WILLOW by Gareth Mottram. I love to read a novel that keeps me wanting more. Jason Willow's quest to establish his true identity is one long roller coaster of action and suspense. Magnificent locations came alive with an ever-present sense of menace. The other characters, good and bad, were skilfully built upon as the story progressed (I'm still rooting for Violet), and I can't wait to hear more of their story. If you like books by Darren Shans, Anthony Horowitz, and the later, darker Harry Potter novels go and get Jason Willow now!

Format: Paperback
There's something in this book for everyone: martial arts, daemons, class warfare, complex relationships, fighting, fast cars... you name it and it's probably here, meaning many people will relate to it. There are some nice set pieces and some intriguing ideas, some of which are developed, others which are left, presumably for later. Sometimes there seem to be too many ideas fighting to be heard, but overall it's an exciting read which pulls you along to the bloody, violent climax. Let's have some more please!
