Meet Jon

Hello! My name’s Jon and I’m an author.

I love reading, writing, running, quizzes and riddles!

I grew up playing in the ruins of a Victorian zoo, which was great fun but also a bit scary.  

Join me on January 19th when I will read from my brand new book, The Spybrarian, tell you how I come up with my characters and answer any questions you may have.

Jo with her book, "Taking Time"

Jon’s brand new book, The Spybrarian, is a rip-roaring, rib-tickling rollercoaster ride which sees Kian Reader and his two best friends, Prissy McBeef and Velcro Asif, plunged into a world of silly puns, bad jokes and vowel-loosening adventure as they try to stop the evil Fellowship Against Reading of Texts from taking over the world.
