Welcome to the world of award winning author, performer & musician Gareth P. Jones… Ninja Meerkats, Steampunk Pirates, dragon detectives, murderous twins, dark family secrets, bureaucratic ghosts, Victorian illusionists, dinosaur parties, time travel mysteries, funky ukuleles, sinister accordions, alien-fighting pets, daily jokes, death and ice cream.

This year, I wrote and presented the  Blue Peter mystery. Click on the picture to find out more and to play detective along with me.



My latest book is a joke book co-written with the fantabulous Rachel Delahaye. The Daily Joker contains a joke for every day of the year, alongside weekly joke challenges and hilarious illustrations from Beano legend Nigel Parkinson. There are famous birthdays, ‘on this day’ funnies and space for young readers to write their own jokes. It cost £4.99 and I really hope you manage to get a copy and enjoy reading it as much as we enjoyed writing it.



My series in which ordinary household pets fight extraordinary extraterrestrials (illustrated by Steve May) now has 6 books.





The sixth and final installation in the series, Invasion of the Giant Nits sees the Pet Defenders face their biggest challenge yet, as they try to defeat the evil Tarangutan, Anitch Annascratch and her miniature army of genetically designed nits.

This adventure also brings together some of the themes that have been developing over the series. What did happen to Biskit’s previous partner, Champ? Has Daley the fox picked a side yet? And is grumpy old Commander F right that the Earth is better fighting its own corner? Or should they join forces with the SUPA agents and work for the good of the entire universe? Find out by buying a copy from your local bookshop or ordering a copy online.

If you prefer your books a little richer and darker then why not try one of these sinister titles, available from all discerning bookshops or online here.
