As well as being the author of award-winning short stories - some of which appear together for the first time in his collection from Postilion Press, A Spell in Winter - Jonathan Dodds has also written a novel, Trouble, which will be published in June 2016.
Jonathan worked in publishing and bookselling for fifteen years, and more recently has been running a successful property company, but currently devotes "as much time as possible" to writing.
He has spent periods of his life in Yorkshire, where he grew up, in London, Brighton and in Scotland. Over the last twenty years, he has divided his time between Sussex and his family's Scottish croft.
