Gareth Mottram


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 the first 500 copies of his Y/A supernatural action novel JASON WILLOW.
The School Librarian Association said “This exciting first novel is not for the faint hearted with menacing locations and action descriptions. …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…”(School Librarian Magazine, Summer2008)

Following other positive, yet constructive, editorial advice from a number of other sources, he worked on a shorter 2nd edition which was printed in 2009 after the 1st edition sold out. He is hoping to release Book II of the planned trilogy in late 2010.

    Excellent guide. Clear, step by step, instructions with hints and tips and screenshots. After following this, my original manuscript(for print)has been sandblasted clean into a tight,lean ebook machine.
