Creating creepy and funny comics and characters since primary school Jason realised the value of reading and writing books at an early age when he was recovering from surgery as a child in hospital were books and comics greatly aided his recovery.
Jason loves sculpting and creates sculpts of the characters in his books which is a wonderful way of bonding and identifying with his characters.

What are you working on next?
I am currently working on 'The Gikkie Bokkers Book Three - The Talon Guardian' which will take at least a year to complete. Writing Book Two of 'The Gikkie Bokkers - The Aoes Shee' was the hardest thing that I have had to do in my life because I lost my best friend and father in law just when I was starting the book. It was a daunting task but with time I saw it as an opportunity to celebrate his life as he set the spark alight within me to start writing in the first place. Book three focuses more on the Gikkie Bokker Younglings Fluke Fluke and his friend Jele-Nai but I am not giving away anything else at this time.
Who are your favorite authors?
I love and deeply respect the works of J.R.R Tolkien and Don Miguel Ruiz. I also like JK Rowling's style of writing and I found Mark Thomas' book 'As Used On the Famous Nelson Mandela' a fantastic read but I don't read a lot anymore as I am so busy between teaching martial arts, illustration, sculpting and writing my own books.
