This is just to update you… I am nearly through draft one of the next novel in ‘The Mentor’ series. This isn’t an on-going series, but a set of novels that are older/younger romance – what some call May to December romance. In this story, the older character, Matt Barrow, is 35, rich, successful but lacking love, and the younger, Jason Hodge, is 23, closeted and scared. As usual, in my Mentor books, it’s all about characters guiding and helping each other to fulfilment.
I have gone back to my roots and a favourite location for this story; a large and empty, rural marsh towards the south coast of England. You may have noticed that the Mentor books are set in remote locations. ‘Wildhill Farm’ is somewhere in the east of the country, where the hills meet the flatlands and miles from the nearest village. ‘Barrenmoor Ridge’ (fast becoming a best seller and racing to the top 130 at Amazon MM Romance) is set on a Yorkshire fell. Lonemarsh house is set on a marsh in summer, and although the house is not too far from a village, it’s still a quiet and romantic location.
There will be more about the story as we approach publication – hopefully in March, and there will be a preview of the cover here as soon as my wonderful designer has created it. She’s currently working on a cover for another of my books, so I’m not hassling her. Anyway, I still have to finish draft one of ‘Lonemarsh’, and then do draft two, edit it, and have it proofed, lay it out and publish it. Meanwhile, you can always catch my other titles at my Amazon author page: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Jackson-Marsh/e/B077LDT5ZL/
“John understood his inexperience and led the way. When John’s mouth opened around Gary’s shaft, and the heat of his throat engulfed it, Gary moaned loudly and threw his head back. He’d never known this sensation, never been so wanted, never been made to feel so special.”
“It takes a brave man to climb a mountain, but it takes a braver lad to show him the way.”
John Hamilton, at 36, is an Everest climber living an isolated life halfway up wild Fellborough in Yorkshire. He’s there to recover from the death of his lover and put his life in order. Gary Taylor, at 19, is homeless with no chance of a future. Gary finds a desperate way to make money but the plan backfires on him, and he finds himself on Fellborough, injured and close to death.
When John rescues him, the two soon come to realise that perhaps they can save each other, all they need to do is accept who they are and what they really want.
‘Barrenmoor Ridge’ is an MM romance novel with a thriller through line set in an unforgiving British winter, but hopefully, it will warm your heart.
Happy New Year

Here’s the cover and back blurb to get you started. Happy New Year!
It takes a brave man to climb a mountain, but it takes a braver lad to show him the way.
Following the death of his lover, mountaineer John Hamilton lives an isolated existence high on wild Fellborough peak. When he rescues 19-year-old Gary Taylor from the mountain, John can’t accept that the boy may be the answer to his heartache. Gary is seventeen years his junior, confused, and being pursued by criminals. As Gary helps John through his grief, so the older man mentors the lad through his coming out. Both paths lead to the same destination, but are they walking them together?
It’s always special when you get a review from another author. Here is what Jackie Keswick has to say about ‘The Mentor of Wildhill Farm.’
Follow four young men and their mentor on a journey of self-discovery and never look at writing retreats in the same way again.
This ticked a lot of boxes for me. A great sense of location combines with situations and emotions many of us will remember from our own pasts to form a vibrant backdrop for five beautifully drawn characters who stayed with me long after I turned the last page.
This is a deftly woven story that offers plenty of introspection and a touch of sweet spiced with surprise while also managing to come across as very, very sexy.
It’s one of those books where I’m hoping for sequel…
When Camden Stevens, a 42-year-old writer, is invited to mentor four gay youths at remote Wildhill Farm, he finds himself with a dream, come true.
Logan, the 18-year old virgin, Dean the troubled show-off and Kenny the farmer’s lad, both 19, and Gabriel, the 20-year-old esoteric, are all keen to develop their skills. Cam’s job is to mentor them in their writing and their sexuality – and he has carte blanche to do that in any way he sees fit.
The boys are launched on a week of self-discovery as they explore their writing and each other through a series of erotic games. Somewhere, in the mix of youth and sex, Camden unexpectedly finds love.
The Mentor of Wildhill Farm paperback [249 pages. Coming soon]
The Mentor of Wildhill Farm is now available on Kindle as an eBook download – and in Kindle Unlimited for free. This is a M/M Romance/Erotica novel (adults only) in the older/younger niche.
“Camden Stevens, a forty-two-year-old writer with a passion for younger men, is invited to mentor four gay youths at an isolated farmhouse. His students are budding writers in their late teens, all keen to explore their creativity — and sex. Camden must mentor them in both, and expects them to work hard.
What he doesn’t expect is a youth like Gabriel, and what he doesn’t know is that the man who set up this fantasy-come-true has a motive of his own.”
The Mentor of Wildhill Farm is my second full-length MM romance/erotica novel. I put it that way because, apart from being a romance, there’s a fair amount of erotica in it. I’m currently in the editing and preparing for publication stage but my wonderful cover designer has come up with a few covers. Here’s the one I am currently playing with. I think it says it all apart perhaps from the erotica element, but we don’t want to frighten Amazon.
The Mentor of Wildhill Farm
Camden Stevens, a forty-two-year-old writer with a passion for younger men, is invited to mentor four gay youths at an isolated farmhouse. His students are budding writers in their late teens, all keen to explore their creativity. And sex. Camden must mentor them in both, and expects them to work hard.
What he doesn’t expect is a youth like Gabriel, and what he doesn’t know is that the man who set up this fantasy come true has an ulterior motive.
