Jon's first book, When the World Falls Down has just started it's journey with the Matador team. Book 2 of the series is currently in the editing phase while book 3, along with other separate ideas are currently being written.
Jon has created a truly exciting and visceral world that came to life instantly in mind, and made me want to find anything and everything out as Bethany does! I found it highly enjoyable to read, and found it so interesting to see what a world where creatures from storybooks as well as new ones lived in. I cannot wait to read where Bethany's journey goes next! A highly enjoyable read that I would recommend to anyone
This book was a joy to read. Charmingly written, the narrator is as much a character as any of those whose adventures we follow through the weird and wonderful galaxy of Edimor. Bethany is a protagonist to root for. Her friends are your own, as together they get in and out of intergalactic scrapes, twirling pistols, quips and mustachios to boot. I laughed out loud, and was moved just as often, as when it comes to shots to the heart, the writer is just as trigger-happy as his space-piratical protagonists.
Five-star read. Would recommend to fans of Douglas Adams, and of the world-building fantasy genre. I anticipate the sequel.

A gripping read. Very imaginative.
This excellent book invites readers to lose themselves entirely in an immersive and joyfully ridiculous new world.
Following the travels of a delightful young heroine, we are taken on a turbulent tour of the author’s vibrant and intractable imagination, providing a thrilling narrative for the adventures of this fearless child!
Packed with abrupt humour and unprecedented characters, it was really a pleasure to read and I can hardly wait for the sequel.
A solid six out of five starts from me.

Jon created such a wonderfully vivid world that sucked me in from the word go. Can't wait for the next installments!
Born in sunny Watford, Jon has dabbled with writing ever since he was young. As a big fan of both fantasy and sci-fi his stories have generally ended up on the more fantastical end of the spectrum. Favourite books include City of Dreaming Books and A Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy. If it's something a bit odd there's a good chance that he'll want to read it. Other interests include miniature wargaming, history, and anything super geeky. Along with writing Jon is also a trained actor, and annually appears in pantomimes, normally as the comic lead. When the World Falls Down is his first book, and part 1 of a series of 6. He has also started writing other fantasy and sci-fi work.
