J.B. THOMAS - MAMMON - THE FERRYMAN CHRONICLES & STORIES FOR SEVEN YEAR OLDS - RANDOM HOUSE AUSTRALIA - AUSSIE AUTHOR ROAD TRIP - DAY 19

Welcome J.B.


AUTHOR BIO:


I write speculative fiction for young adults. I like to write fast-paced, action stories set in cities where my characters use weapons and modern tech to fight baddies, who are usually supernatural in nature. I live in Perth. I love Great Danes and have lived with two so far: Henry and George. My back garden is also a hangout for ducks, crows, doves and the naughty magpie larks. (They're those crazy little birds that fly from your car to your roof and back again, all day.) My favourite storytellers include Terry Pratchett and Leo Tolstoy but there are far too many to list here. For me, no other film has bested The Matrix as yet. I like animation, especially Archer, The Venture Bros and South Park. I am a proud member of The Colbert Nation. I like to support new writers and you'll find tips and hints aplenty on my blog. I am represented by Leonie Tyle of Tyle and Bateson Publishing.

Mammon

Forget anything you ever heard about possession, exorcisms, salt circles and pentagrams. The modern demon is far more difficult to catch - and even harder to destroy.

After the savage, tragic deaths of their parents, Grace and Joe Callahan learn that they are descendants of the sarsareh - an ancient order of mercenaries who hunt very special prey. Grace and Joe take their place in the Order, but are treated with hostility and fear by other recruits.

For the Callahan siblings have powers that fascinate and terrify. Joe is a Ferryman, capable of opening dimensional rifts, while Grace's telepathic abilities surpass anything the Order has ever seen. To complicate matters, Grace falls for her older, more experienced squad leader, Ivan. Meanwhile, the sarsareh elders have their own plans for Joe.

But none of that will matter if the powerful demon Mammon manages to convince Joe to open a gateway to his demon world and overrun Earth with his armies. 

If he succeeds: game over.
