Jonah Gibson is a former accounting and finance executive who lives on the Florida Treasure Coast with his wife and as many greyhounds as they are able to squeeze into the house. He's been writing most of his adult life, but turned seriously to fiction in 2008 the day after the Lehman Brothers bankruptcy brought Wall Street to it's knees and the global economy to the brink. Honest fiction may be subversive, but it rarely poses the same level of threat to society as the monumental financial fictions that underpin economic policy . When he is not writing, Jonah is tinkering at art and thinking about fishing, although he never actually goes fishing as he hates to get his shiny tackle wet.
Jonah prefers the sacred to the profane, but also prefers profanity, at which he is adept, to speech that has been sanitized of impact. He prefers art to politics and politics to war, quiet to music and music to noise. He prefers driving to flying, but these days who doesn't? He also prefers red wine to white, scotch to bourbon, and martinis to everything else. He likes his candy with nuts. In fact, he is certain that there is nothing that cannot be improved with the addition of either nuts or bacon - except martinis of course. Those are already perfect - only the classic ones though, constructed of gin and vermouth with the garnish of your choice. An appletini is not a martini. Jonah suspects it may actually be an abomination, but he would never say so.
Jonah believes fiction is often truer than reality, and art is more reasonable than philosophy. He thinks science confirms faith in ways only a poet would understand. He believes that, at a minimum, one should leave the world in a better state than one found it, and while it's okay to fail at this, it's not okay not to try.
