Hello, my name is Jason Nevercott. Like most people, I have always had ideas for stories.
North End came to me in a dream. I was on a tube, which stopped at a disused station, where bad things began to happen. The rest of the story my imagination took care of - eventually.
The Destiny of Matthew was a result of visiting an art gallery and being mesmerised by a picture of a woodland scene. My memories of being a teenager and interest in history sorted out the rest.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy them. If you want to give me any feedback then please e-mail me at Jasonnevercott@yahoo.com.
Thanks for taking the time to read my books.

North End is an enjoyable horror tale with an opening hook that drags the reader straight into the story. It's an intriguing beginning and the story unfolds to reveal the main character Tom's creepy discovery of something disturbing in a disused Tube station.
I found that the story was paced well with the final ten chapters moving quickly along and keeping the sense of tension while at the same time throwing a good surprise in on the way to the book's satisfying conclusion.
The characters were well written and developed as the story progressed. Tom's shyness was endearing and Jodie with her strong willed temperament was also very likeable. I found the inept police officer Terry alternately annoying and amusing. The story's antagonists were suitably creepy but I can say no more on this for fear of spoiling the surprise. You'll just need to read it to find out!
While the story itself was very much enjoyable, it was simply 'told' and this is my main reason for not giving it a higher rating. For me the teenagers dialog wasn't always convincing and I found that the time was mentioned often enough to become mildly distracting. Looking past these concerns though there is a nice little creepy tale in there and I will be following this author to see what else he comes up with!
