Jon has lived in the Midwest US, not in the fictional city that most of his stories take place in, but not far from there, for all his life, apart from quick sorties to Canada and Mexico and a somewhat longer one to France (Paris, Brittany, Normandy, Loire Valley). He has a degree in French from a university in the Midwest.
Interests, apart from writing, have included classical guitar, cycling (before something effectively destroyed his sense of balance), most of the arts, especially photography; and gay rights and human rights in general.
Likes the novella form -- which the popularity of e-reading is reportedly re-invigorating.
