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 - and sold out of - 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, Summer 2008)

Gareth has released a shorter, 3rd edition of the first book and has now completed the JASON WILLOW trilogy.
