Wayne Gamm was born on a remote sheep farm on a mountainside in north Wales on a stormy night in June. The midwife and even the family itself wanted him to be delivered in hospital because he was going to be large and he was Gwynedd's first baby, but for reason's that will become apparent, his mother and grandmother, Rhiannon, thought that might be very dangerous. All of Gwynedd's family had been born on the farm, Yr Ardd Y Ddraig, The Dragon's Garden, for as far back as they knew - a family bible put that at 324 years - and they were all either witches or warlocks. The problem with the males though was that they were 'lose cannons', meaning they had difficulty focusing their powers. Wayne followed suit, although all witch babies have to learn self-control, even the females. Gwynedd and Rhiannon had high hopes that Wayne would be more capable than his male antecedents, but it turned out that he had such great power, and so little control, that even his own family were wary of him. He was feared and shunned at school by teachers and fellow-students alike because they knew from experience, that things could get a little weird when Wayne was around. The more astute noticed that when he was happy, good things happened, but when he was upset, anything could befall anyone. Luckily, Wayne was a happy person by nature, but this made it worse for him, because he didn't want to hurt people, so he refused to accept that he was causing the disruptions. They called him Fate Twister behind his back. Wayne grew up dejected, rejected, lonely and in denial. This is the story of the early life of Wayne Gamm, Fate Twister.

About the Author:

Owen Jones was born in Barry, South Wales, where he lived until going to Portsmouth to study Russian at 18.

At 32, Owen moved back to Barry to work with in his family's construction company, first as a painter and then as a director, or, as the bank once corrected him, a painter and decorator. He was also office manager for ten years. At the age of 50 Owen moved to Thailand to live with a Thai girl that he had met while there on holiday. He married the woman and now lives in her village of birth in remote northern Thailand. As Owen puts it: 'Born in the Land of Song, living in the Land of Smiles'.
