About the Author

Four-teen years ago, at the age of thirty-three Kev discovered writing as his new calling and pursued this with passion. This turning point in Kev's life was the beginning of his own personal adventure, starting with the inception of the first Johnny Marsh Adventure novel, Dream Raider. Kev immigrated to Australia in 1971 with his parents, settling in Brisbane Australia. Kev is qualified in two trades and has had to fit his writing around his work commitments. As Kev discovered his path as a writer, this point in time also marked another pivotal moment in Kev's writing career as he partnered up with artist and designer Anthony Puttee. Together the two have developed the Johnny Marsh series over the years as Anthony assisted Kev with concept ideas for story points and world development. Together they are currently working on next book in the Johnny Marsh Adventure series.

The author has a plot with possibilities and a quirky protagonist ripe for development. But the book suffered from a strong technique of telling rather than showing and a viewpoint jumping all over the place to the point it was distracting.

What I read of the book came across as an engaging outline of a yet-to-be-written project and probably needed the hand of an old fashion publishing editor to send the author back to their word processor a few more times.

The author has obvious potential but some craftsman issues made the project seem done in a rush-to-publish way instead of seasoned and fully professional.

A story and project well worth some more editorial refinement.

It was different reading a book in a third person with out an obvious narrator. The book starts of with 2 boys, one a nerd and the other a little odd. The boy John has gone through the loss of his mother and Pete is a nerd with no friends. John's oddity is that he doesn't frighten easily and is more curious about things normal children would find frightening. John starts a paranormal detective agency which Peter hires because of his nightmares. These two quickly become friends not knowing that in a past life they were best friends. They boys find that haunting Pete's nightmare is a clown that is thousands of years old that eats peoples souls. John soon learns that he is the one that needs to end this evil. He has been battling this evil clown in past lives. John learns that this clown was the one who killed his mother. With the help of Peter and 13 white witches he must end this evil forever.

One of my favorite mystery series as a child was Alfred Hitchcock & the Three Investigators by Robert Arthur. In Dream Raider, KC Webb has created the beginning of a YA series a bit darker, but every bit as compelling. If the coming books are as well written, it is sure to be a success with both teens & adults.

Johnny Marsh is a teen with an insatiable curiosity about the things most kids run from. The day he decides to go public with his fascination for the supernatural by offering his services as an investigator, he meets Peter Wright, who just happens to be tormented in his dreams by an evil clown. It soon becomes apparent that Peter's dreams are more than just the product of an overactive imagination. As Johnny & Peter delve deeper into the horrifying reality behind the dreams, they uncover a centuries old evil and a group who believes it is Johnny's destiny to defeat that evil. This is one carnival ride you do not want to miss.

I'm fairly new to the YA genre, so I started reading this story with very little expectations.
I was hooked from the beginning. The main characters John and Pete (aka Wrongy) had
an instantaneous bond. Manjucus the soul-stealing cown is the ultimate creepy villain.
The story had it all adventure, mystery, suspense and gore. I don't want to give away any
spoilers, but there was definitely a twist in the story that I didn't see coming. I enjoyed this
story and I can hardly wait to read the next book.
