More 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, 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. Over the years Kev has drawn his inspiration from books, films and even video games. Kev has been married for over twenty-seven years to his wife Tracey, who together have two sons.

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 marketer Anthony Puttee. The two have been long time friends and the idea of working with Kev creating this new world and characters was irresistible.

Together the two have developed the Johnny Marsh series over the years as Anthony became the concept artist developing ideas for story points and world development. It's a rare working relationship as the writing inspires the artwork and the artwork in turn inspiring the writing with character details yet to be revealed in upcoming books, which were fleshed out through visual concepts over ten years ago.

Together they are currently working on Book 2 in the Johnny Marsh Adventure series, Soul Trader: A Johnny Marsh Adventure. The two together founded the website JohnnyMarsh.Net where they share the stories, freebies, announce event information, and share there writing adventures.

You can find out more about Kev Webb and Anthony Puttee at the website JohnnyMarsh.Net, along with giveaways and the free weekly story 'Pete's Diary' an online companion to the novel Dream Raider: A Johnny Marsh Adventure.

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.

Dream Raider: A Johnny Marsh Adventure is an edgy sci-fi story that takes the reader on a chilling ride.

Follow the daring and frightening adventure of Johnny Marsh and his friend, Peter Wright (nick named Wrongy) as their search for the truth leads them into dangerous territory, where a malevolent presence lurks at every turn.

The menacing Manjucus terrorises Pete and John in their dreams, knowing their weaknesses and using them to lure the boys into its evil grasp.

John and Pete's investigation uncovers this four thousand year old creature, and discovers that it has been destroying lives for many, many years.

With plenty of plot twists and an ending that will leave you breathless, Dream Raider will have you on the edge of your seats and eager to continue the thrilling journey in book number two.

Format: Paperback
In Dream Raider, follow the unique, disturbing and courageous adventure story of two teens, Johnny Marsh and his mate Pete (Wrongy).

An investigaton of their troubling dreams leads them into darkness and danger, where evil lurks around every corner.

There's plenty of twists and turns in the tale, with an ending that'll surprise you, and inspire you to get a hold of the next book in the series when it's released.

Dream Raider: A Johnny Marsh Adventure is a bloody, sci-fi horror story that has many layers and hidden meanings for the curious reader to tease out.

Kev C Webb has a fresh and sinister approach to a clown as the evil menacing figure permeating every page
and the exceptional illustrations by Anthony Puttee just add to the reading pleasure for young teens as well as older audiences.

If you find clowns scary then certainly don't read this book. The evil Manjucus is coming into young Pete Wright dreams and Pete keeps waking knowing that the evil is coming for his soul. Johnny Marsh is new to Pete's school and had just that morning passed out his new business card as a supernatural investigators. John and Pete team up and head off into an adventure that is sure to scare.

K. C. Webb draws you into this story and keeps your interest throughout. I'm not sure I would continue in this series, but maybe...

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.
