Jon Cronshaw is a British fantasy and speculative fiction writer who weaves tales brimming with adventure, escapism, and an exploration of life’s profound questions.

His love for fantasy was first ignited when his mother read him Roald Dahl’s classic, The Witches, during his childhood.

Throughout the years, Jon has immersed himself in countless fantasy books, with works by authors such as Robin Hobb, Terry Pratchett, and Michael J. Sullivan ranking among his personal favourites.

His writing journey commenced in journalism, where he penned features on art and music before progressing to a role as a political reporter. His articles have been published in various regional and national newspapers in the UK, including The GuardianDaily Mail, and Metro.

Prior to this, Jon pursued an academic career, culminating in the attainment of a PhD in the history of art. His research focused on the enduring legacy of Jacob Epstein, an accomplished Anglo-American sculptor.

Following the success of his debut post-apocalyptic Wasteland series, Jon made the pivotal decision to dedicate himself fully to writing fiction in 2017.

Beyond his writing endeavours, Jon finds solace in playing the guitar, immersing himself in music, and embarking on leisurely walks along the coastal landscapes accompanied by his loyal guide dog, Digit.

Originally from Wolverhampton, England, Jon now resides in Morecambe with his wife and son.
