Herbert Howard Jones


HERBERT HOWARD JONES grew up in Notting Hill, London in the sixties. He went to a boarding school in Norfolk and then local schools. When he left school he got numerous jobs, including as a porter at the BBC London, in a jewellery factory and also at a solicitor's office as a trainee legal executive. He is a creative spirit who also likes dabbling in music and art. He always wanted to write suspense books with a melodramatic element and so spent years reading them and working on various projects. He is also interested in romantic and fantasy fiction. But meeting people has always inspired him the most and he has had the good fortune to meet quite a few interesting people. One of the most interesting was the daughter of the Captain of the Titanic with whom he had tea in her cottage up in Suffolk. Miss Smith was a lady with a big personality and a very interesting home. She was surrounded with Titanic memorabilia wherever you looked. Jones was only a boy at the time and didn't appreciate the significance of all this stuff, but regret not quizzing her on the catastrophic event which has forever featured large in shipping folklore!
