Jon Swift

Biography

Born in Liverpool in 1985, Jon has been writing since the age of 17 and not wanted to do anything else since. He attended Childwall Comprehensive School and Liverpool Hope University, earning what he would find out to be a completely irrelevent education. He works a dead end job to pay the bills. Hopefully only until he can pay said bills with his writing skills. He does not own a fridge. When he isn't writing, Jon plays video games, reads, watches movies and tv shows. Sometimes, he can even be found playing soccer, but you must look carefully. Jon is allergic to turnips and stupidity.

He aims to break through the glass ceiling of publication and be on a first name basis with Mark Coker.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
At the tender age of 17. One door shut and my mind opened up with ideas that I had divert on to the page.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
Born and raised in Liverpool. I think it has given me a good sense of humour and a thick skin. I do try to pay homage with my work. My first novel featured a Scouse MI6 agent and my second will be set in the city itself. But mostly the humour and thick skin thing.

    A very laid back style in an easily digestable chunk. Goth's characters use humour naturally, while his descriptions of socially awkward Evan will be familiar to everyone. Once you read the 1st, you'll want to read more.
