I am excited, maybe even, Thee, most excited I’ve ever been about featuring a fellow author on my blog. Joe Gazzam has so much experience in the screen writing world. His talent is endless. With a resume of 21 Jump Street and Step Up and many others, Joe has finally taken the leap across the pen line and written his debut novel. UNCAGED, released just days ago has already attracted a great readership in this genre. Just check out the reviews the book has already accrued. ‘It reads like a movie,’ ‘Well researched and written,’ ‘An education.’
Based on politics and crime, Jason Holden finds himself in prison. What did he do? He’s a troubled teen with a father who not only is the State Governor, but also wants to re-educate his son and enters him into the ‘Scared straight’ programme. Jason finds himself mixed in with the worst criminals and when a full-out jailbreak takes place, Jason has no choice but to rely on an unlikely convict.
Screenwriter/Novelist Joe Gazzam was born in Baltimore, MD, grew up in Fort Lauderdale, FL and graduated from the University of Florida. Soon after college he moved to Los Angeles with one script under his arm, never having been to California in his life.
