Jonny Newell’s creative imagination inspired him to become a storywriter. A working musician for over 35 years, Jonny currently lives in Queensland Australia with his wife Vickie surrounded by love of their families. When Jonny’s not rocking in his various bands you’ll most probably find him either recording music in his music room, renovating the house … or just maybe ... he’s swirling something weird and wonderful for his very next story.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Oh, I've been a muso since leaving school so usually something to do with music obviously. I play in a few concept tribute band shows at the moment as a guitarist, so I get to escape from being Jonny the writer, to being Malcolm Young from AC/DC and U2's The Edge for a few hours which the acting side of me really enjoys.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
My imagination has always been quite strong (even in younger years) but putting pen to paper came in my teens. High School is where I learnt a little more about writing. So my first story I truly remember was a terrible descriptive brief that I failed in miserably ... but the Mexican ghost story content did get a like from my teacher.
