Martin Jones

Biography

Hi! I'm Martin Jones, living with my wife and two boys in Christchurch, in the South Island of New Zealand. A lot of things fascinate me - languages and cultures, gullibility and naivety, great food and conviviality, music in all its forms, the world wide web of nature, unfamiliar experiences, lists. I find that random thoughts sometimes develop into stories, which I then try to foist on unwitting readers!
