Jason Ayres is a Science Fiction, Humor, and Comedy, Young Adult from Worcestershire England, best known for his debut novel “The Time Bubble.” Like many authors, he showed an inclination towards writing when he was still very young. As a primary schooler, he wrote an epic space adventure that told of the exploits of Captain Jason who was very similar to a starship captain that was very popular in the late 1970s. By the 1980s, he was busy writing downplays on any spare exercise books he could find at his father’s stationery cupboard. The plays usually starred girls he fancied and his classmates who were involved in several libelous and outrageous scenarios. Luckily, most of them never saw the light of day though they served as an appropriate way to cultivate his fertile imagination. Even though he loved writing, he decided to take a detour when he was in his twenties and went into market research. Given that he had to work a 9-5, he did not have as much time to write as he spent most of his time writing briefs to various manufacturers offering advice on their product ranges. He also wrote tons of spoof newsletters that chronicles the countless activities he engaged in around pub life.

Ayres ultimately left the sales world and decided to become a stay at home father, an experience that gave him a lot to write about. In 2013, he authored “Austerity Dad” and “Fortysomething Father,” which were two humorous parenting diaries. He followed this up with a third diary write up in 2014 that chronicled his experiences as one of the country’s best sausage tasters. During this time, he also worked as a columnist for the “Oxford Mail.” In 2014, he published “The Time Bubble,” which became the number one young adult time travel novel. The novel would spawn a trilogy when he followed it up with “Global Cooling” in the same year and “Man Out Of Time” in 2015. He also wrote other novels not strictly related to the series in “Midlife Crisis” that follows a man down on his luck who has the opportunity to go back in time to right things. His other novel was “My Tomorrow, Your Yesterday” that tells the story of a man who lives his days backward. His novels explore time travel from all angles including both backward- and forward-looking tales that explore second chances in life, and changes in the multiverse. While most of his works may be read as standalone, he interlinks them so that many of the characters in one novel recur in several others. He is also the author of the “Second Chances” series of novels.

Apart from his writing he is also a major foodie and prides himself as the official “Hambassador.” He became a small-time celebrity in 2013 when he was declared the foremost sausage taster in Britain. He won the honor after tasting more than 300 sausages in a competition. Since then, he has been one of the judges that pick the winners of the “British Sausage Week” alongside Simon Rimmer the celebrity chef. He is also the author of the non-fiction work “The Sausage Man: The Diary Of A VIP Sausage Taster.”

Jason Ayres’ novel “The Time Bubble” opens to the discovery of a time bubble in a recently dug tunnel. Any person that walks through the bubble finds themselves automatically sent forward in time. They go even further every time someone else enters into the time bubble. It initially starts as leaps in time measured by the seconds, then minutes and before long, it is hours. The characters now need to figure out how to deal with the new reality before the forward leaps in time take over their lives. One of them starts doing the math and learns that a penny doubled every day would make one a millionaire in just a month. The revelation means that they could be in serious trouble if they do not find a solution to their predicament soon enough. But there are several complications including the fact that the characters are teens and hence they are using teen logic to try to get out of the difficult situation. That means that they do not trust the adults who try to advise the and likewise the adults do not trust them. As such, they try to work out the problem in parallel. As expected, things quickly take a turn for the worse as they do not go to the authorities given that they have a fear and dislike of authority just like any other teen.

“Global Cooling” the second novel by Jason Ayres is set ten years after the happenings of the first novel if the series and tells the stories of the protagonists who are now in their twenties. The novel is set in 2029, where the planet is dealing with an impending climate catastrophe. The earth is struck by an asteroid that covers everything with ash and dust that blocks out all sunlight causing the temperatures to begin falling. With worsening weather conditions, the citizens of a small town in England need to decide if they should wait for the worst to pass or flee to the south where conditions are better. Detective Inspector Hannah Benson decides to stay even though she soon has to deal with more than maintaining law and order in the community. Food is becoming scarce and power supplies are failing which usually leads to people losing their moral core and developing darker motives. Meanwhile, Charlie and Kaylee Adams are stranded at Gatwick since all planes have been grounded. They are desperate to go to the continent and they proceed to find a way to the coast trying to find a means across the English Channel. Meanwhile, Josh Gardner the time traveler may have found a solution as he goes to Cornwall with his wife, where he has heard that there may be a new “Time Bubble.”

“Man Out Of Time” by Jason Ayres is a story of Daniel Fisher, a man who finds himself two decades in the future, where he has been legally declared dead and his home is anything but. Stranded in a strange place, he still has a currency that had been out of circulation for years and things could not get any worse, except they do. It is not long before gets into a confrontation with the residents of the town who believing him to be insane, send him to a highly secured psychiatric unit. His prospects of going back in time to a familiar world look very bleak. In the meantime, Josh has finally mastered the secrets of time travel and can go backward and forward in time. He goes back to happenings in the past and travels to the future, where he spends time with Peter who is a master at future travel. But the two men have been careful not to let anyone in on their secret capabilities.
