Character Feature – Gaz


© Eduard Stelmakh –

Excellent progress with my novel today! After feeling unwell for the past couple of days, I was firing on full cylinders this morning, having started one of the most crucial parts of the book. It was a pleasure to write this section, which has its setting in a location I consider to be one of the most wonderful places in the entire country!

Ironically, the person featured in this section is one of the remaining minor characters still to cover in this series. ‘Gaz’ (a shortened nick-name for Gareth) is the commander at a fortress Patrick and his colleagues take refuge in towards the later stages of the book. In the service of a Marcher Lord based at Montgomery, he holds the small fort in an increasingly unstable border area. Despite the dangers presenting him and his comrades in this location, he still maintains a very down-to-earth and generally rosy disposition on life. A Powys man by birth, of average height and with cropped hair and piercing blue eyes, he still maintains a slight suspicion of outsiders (like many of his kinsfolk), but at the same time is both amiable and courteous. His assistance is gratefully received by the members of Patrick’s team, as they continue on with the ultimate conclusion of their quest.

Until the next time…..



About Owen Law

My pen-name is ‘Owen Law’ (real name: Nicholas Davies.) I’m a science fiction writer specialising in dystopian/apocalyptic visions of the future. I’m from Shropshire, England (on the borders with Wales) and I’m in my forties. I have a background in public services and training. I’ve been working on my first novel, Dragon Line, since 2008. I’ve also written several short stories, one of which you can find on this blog (‘Matilda Leviathan‘). I now reside on the border of Shropshire and Wales, and my interests include writing (of course!), current affairs and environmental issues.
