A Gallery of Mothers By J. S. Latshaw


Mountaintop, the last known refuge of humanity, faces a new cataclysm, and only exiled Icelyn Brathius can stop it. But to do so, she must give up all she loves and journey to an accursed, legendary tower in the middle of an unforgiving desert. Can she endure the nightmares and secrets she confronts–and accept what they teach her about herself?
The end of the world happened in slow motion, and should have been avoided a hundred times. Learn the truth about the aftermath of Sean Brathius’ doomed experiment, and how those tragedies and betrayals forged the foundation of today’s volatile and dangerous world.
An unprecedented horror arises Down Below–a movement, a fervent faith, and a deadly vision for the world. Can the Anaghwin and what’s left of humanity survive the terrors that will be unleashed? Will they even want to if they can?

Jason Latshaw is a writer who lives in Los Angeles.

Latshaw has always enjoyed writing. (All writers say that but he states "it's true with me and other writers are all probably lying".) Even when he's not writing, he is, just without a pen or a keyboard. That's why there's often a blank look on his face.

Latshaw has an MFA in Screenwriting from UCLA. He also writes television and film scripts.

Latshaw was almost kidnapped when in the third grade and (according to the police there at the time) would have been pressed into the sex slave trade in Egypt. He believes his life would have been very different had that happened.

In his spare time, Latshaw enjoys believing in Bigfoot, Nessie, Chupacabra, the Jersey Devil and all manner of cryptozoological creatures because the world is more fun that way, but in his quieter more honest moments he'll admit that he's afraid that maybe they are all just made up.

In his darkest moments, Latshaw is afraid of three things: Serial killers, Alien Abductions, and Sharks. He recently heard a radio show about an entity called the Hat Man the other night, and the Hat Man is trying his hardest to join the club.
