Haydn Jones

Biography

I live in the UK and for the last two years I have been writing full-time. In my spare time I enjoy reading, cooking, jogging and a round of golf as often as possible.

I love writing, so here I am exposing my work to the literary world.

'The Angels of Destiny,' is my sci-fi thriller for adults.
To give the novel authenticity I utilized my travel experiences to San Francisco, Washington DC, Houston, Paris, Rome, Moscow and Antwerp in Belgium.
During December 2015 I started the third and final part entitled 'The Nine Men' The novella is now complete and was incorporated into the Angels of Destiny (New Edition) 2017.

'The Devil and the Unicorn,' is an adult horror story set in the traditional English countryside and is my tribute to Hammer Films for scaring me to death as a child!

'The Journal of Harry Somerville' is a novel set in England in the 1960s but incorporates elements of the WW2 Battle of El Alamein. The novel reached the best seller category on YouWriteOn.com and was in the top ten of the writer's chart for 14 weeks.

My latest work is a murder/mystery novel, entitled 'The Long Wait.' Started in October 2017 and completed in August 2018; the first chapter is now available on my website.

Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to become an indie author?
I enjoy the freedom it offers the writer. The challenges are not to be ignored but the rewards for success are there. The world is now the stage and that is an exciting prospect for any writer. The book industry is changing, because the current model that traditional publishers use is, I believe, flawed. Visionaries like Mark Coker are enabling great books to be available to a global market.
Whether the book is a success or not is decided by the readers and not the publishers.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
To get feedback from someone who has engaged with a character in the book. A good review is also uplifting.
