Jaden Mars’s genre for author publishing is mainly in Christian non-fiction as well as Christian fiction. People today more than ever want truth in matters of social, economic, personal, family and governmental matters and they’re not getting the full truth. Who and what is hindering the public from being apprised of issues all around them which are being implemented and passed, mostly without our knowledge and which eventually affect all of us as a whole? Who writes today and is able to pull solutions to every day dilemmas and deliver food for thought while blending Biblical truths? Not many. These are the things which Jaden divulges; truth without compromise.

My primary career has been the entertainment business: - live theatre, live TV drama, TV series, shorts, commercials, and film. My first 'A' Movie was as a trainee assistant director on the Pinewood set of 'Cleopatra' in 1960-61. In the 70's I aided the British Government as a film consultant, conducting feasibility studies to reduce accidents at home, in the work place and in transit. The ensuing films were extremely successful and were exported to most industrial countries. In all I have obtained hundreds of production credits, of which two-thirds were as writer/producer/director.
I met Alfred Hitchcock in London during the filming of ‘FRENZY’. He welcomed my approach to story structure and film directin ... read more

If you like science fiction, DAUGHTER MOON is the best thing I've ever written, or ever will write. I know my limits. It's not as good as THE MOTE IN GOD'S EYE, or DUNE, or even the flawed masterpiece STRANGER IN A STRANGE LAND. Sucks to be me. I rank it 4th on the Ultimate Sci-Fi Scale. (They say that novelists are even more egotistical than Hollywood Directors.)
If you like romance, you may enjoy A WALK IN THE RAIN. I will always be more than a little in love with Courtney in that novel. This is a mainstream, very adult, epic length romance.

While the characters may change and the story may vary, at the core of all of Denis’s work is a story to be told.
