Jonathan was born a nomad. He lives in the nooks of Europe and spends his time philosophizing with Una Length and Heathcote Pursuit. When not out busking with his penny whistle, he works as an international editorial-talent manager. He also runs a book-editing business, a literary magazine, and a small press. His debut novel, You've Got Something Coming, received the Black Heron Press Award for Social Fiction.
In another life, Jonathan was a bodybuilder and boxer who harvested seaweed in Ireland, gave free hugs in Spain, and flipped pancakes in Denmark. He still loves riding trains and wondering about the lives unfolding outside the window. His biggest passions are learning and travel, and he's ventured to over 60 countries via hitching, couch surfing, and working exchanges.
Additionally, Jonathan plays piano, makes handcrafted soap, and thrives on diverse workouts, organic food, medicinal herbs, artwork, street markets, the outdoors, and anything related to helping others.
