john simmons


John Simmons spent half his working life as a local government entertainments manager and the other half as an antiques dealer. He always wanted to write and his first novel ‘The Town Clerk' was well received and critically acclaimed. The follow-up novel ‘Goodbye Sean' starts in the antiques trade, embraces a Government Minister and takes in two assassinations and a steamy romance.
John Simmons is passionate about Barnsley Football Club, gambling, his family, his church and his dinner - not necessarily in that order!
