Editorial Reviews

Review

Bookmuse Magazine: "If you're a writer you will laugh, despair and sympathise with Jonathan Jones, and the trials and tribulations he faces as he battles to become a published author. And if you're a reader, you'll be captivated by the excellent story-telling that weaves Jonathan's complicated life into a page turning drama. A real feel good novella, perfect to curl up with on a stormy winter's afternoon..." 
You'll enjoy this if you like: Jojo Moyes, Jill Mansell, Erica James. 
Ideal accompaniments: Hot chocolate with marshmallows and a plate of shortbread.

From the Author

The longer I live and the more places I visit in the world, the more connected I feel to my roots, or more specifically my spiritual home, Snowdonia.   
Some years ago we moved from Cheshire to North Wales. Although Cheshire has its history and pretty rural surroundings aplenty, Wales is far more extreme in both aspects. The castles and the rugged hillsides scattered with stone settlements, Druid's circles and Roman roads bring out the historical muse in me. To think that I am treading the same path as someone who lived in the Iron Age, is both fascinating and humbling. Snowdonia kick-started my stalled obsession with writing in a very positive way.
All this whimsical talk of the past makes me sound as if I write historical based fiction. Far from it. Much as I admire many other genres I tend to be very much rooted in current times and my work reflects a lot of my own life experiences. But this is where I find the two ideas merge a little because I am most certainly inspired by this Ice Age landscape and the idea that what has gone before, shapes what we see today, but does it shape what we feel, too?
I write contemporary fiction set in North Wales. It falls very loosely into the romantic genre but it isn't hearts and flowers fiction. You may find the odd spot of arson, adultery and manslaughter laced with black humour and of course, the big landscapes of Snowdonia.
