M J Webb is a loving father of two and husband to one. He lives and works in the heart of England. A short while after the birth of his two children he found himself wanting to do something for them. He wanted to give them something they would always have, something from him that they could hopefully be proud of.
The Jake West trilogy was the result.

I love the freedom to explore my own imagination at will, and very often I'm surprised, delighted and amazed by what I find. My writing is for me and my children, but occasionally somebody somewhere writes a review, or contacts me to tell me they enjoyed my novel, and that is like gold dust. It's like scoring the winning goal in the cup final and it never gets old.

“Do not be afraid of the unknown, Jake. When you cannot see something, or do not know of it, it does not always follow that it is a thing to be feared. You must embrace it with all your heart and soul. Learn to understand it, for only then will you be able to control it, or prevent it from controlling you.”
M.J. Webb

“It is history and as such it is good for teachings only, it cannot change the future unless you dwell on it, unless you let it.”
M.J. Webb

“...it was not Laetral who saved us today! It was he who inspired us to fight I grant you, yes. But, only because Princess Zephany allowed him to! She was the first into battle, and the last to return if I am not mistaken? It was she who returned to the fight when she did not have to, to rescue our soldiers and lead our archers so brilliantly. And it is thanks to the Princess’ leadership that we stand before you now, for we all would surely have fallen without her actions. We who stand in this square are already dead. We breathe now only because we were saved. We should have died out there on those fields today and we know it. Our lives belong to the one who saved us!’
Caro turned to Zephany and took out his sword. He fell down on bended knee and held it out in front of him. ‘Princess... I, Caro, son of Truith of the house of Sirrannus, Champion of Perosya, do hereby pledge to you my sword and allegiance. I am yours, and I hereby swear to serve you faithfully, unto death… Lead us in this fight? Command us, and it shall be done without question. From this day forward, I proclaim you to be the chosen leader of our army. The knights of the Estian Alliance are yours!”
M.J. Webb, Warriors of the Heynai

M.J. Webb Hi,

It's received 44 reviews and it's averaging 4.7 out of 5. I think it's a great story, technically imperfect but everyone has enjoyed it so far. :-)

If you read it please review it or mention it on here.

Thanks very much and best wishes

Chris Parker Reading the keeper of the stones at the moment and really enjoying it. Definitely worth a look. Far better than a lot of traditionally-published books - a real find.

Hi mate - Hope you are well. I noted your variety of books and thought you'd be someone interesting to follow. :-)


Lucinda Dear MJ,
I would like to thank you for being my friend here on GoodReads. I am a huge fan of the fantasy genre and am an avid reader of many works by the authors listed above, hence i do hope to add you to that list too. Your Jake West trilogy really does look amazing, therefore i do hope to be able to read them very soon. Thank you once again and i very much look forward to discussing books and my favorite genre with you (from Tolkien to Dragons and many astonishing adventures!).
Kind Regards

Thanks Lucinda - My books were penned for my children but seem to be doing rather well, though I am struggling to crack Goodreads/entice readers at present. I do hope you try them and let me know what you think but either way thanks for the friendship and look forward to your insights/views. I'm branching out so to speak at present, reading books I would not normally read, a product of having more time on my hands at last now that the trilogy is complete. @:-)

Branwen Sedai *of the White Ajah* Hi there! :) Thanks so much for the friend request! I just tried to download the first book in your Jake West series for my Nook, but I can't seem to find it. Do you know when it might be available for download for the Nook? I'm really interested in reading it, it looks awesome! :)

Lily,
Apologies for not replying before but I have only just seen your post. Have to say that's one of the best blogs I have seen ! Bright, colourful, great content. I look forward to reading your reviews. Complete honesty is a must. Though it sometimes hurts to receive a bad review, it's a necessary part of growth. The only issue I have is when there are errors in the review, or when the reviewer has failed to allow for the intended audience. However, even then, the author must refrain from commenting (as I have just found out to my cost).
Off now to read some of your reviews. If you feel you would like to read my books, and read electronically, I could send you a pdf file or two. pms me if so. 18,000 downloads to date but unable to crack this site. I think it's because my books are aimed specifically at teenagers and there aren't that many on here ? Take care.
