Owen Jones

Publisher info

Author Owen Jones, from Barry, South Wales, came to writing novels relatively recently, although he has been writing all his adult life. He has lived and worked in several countries and travelled in many, many more.
He speaks, or has spoken, seven languages fluently and is currently learning Thai, since he lives in Thailand with his Thai wife of ten years.
"It has never taken me long to learn a language," he says, "but Thai bears no relationship to any other language I have ever studied before."
When asked about his style of writing, he said, "I'm a Celt, and we are Romantic. I believe in reincarnation and lots more besides in that vein. Those beliefs, like 'Do unto another...', and 'What goes round comes around', Fate and Karma are central to my life, so they are reflected in my work'.
His first novel, 'Daddy's Hobby' from the series 'Behind The Smile: The Story of Lek, a Bar Girl in Pattaya' has been followed by four sequels, but his largest collection is 'The Megan Series', eighteen novellas on the psychic development of a young teenage girl, the subtitle of which, 'A Spirit Guide, A Ghost Tiger and One Scary Mother!' sums them up nicely.
As Owen puts it:
'Born in the Land of Song, living in the Land of Smiles'.

Smashwords Interview

What is your writing process?
I like to write in school exercise books first while sitting in a public place like a pub or cafe (preferably outside), then I type the chapters up,
When the first draft of the whole book is complete, I reread it twice on my laptop, again outside
I find creative writing indoors very difficult.
How do you approach cover design?
I like to create my own cover designs and have programme to assist me, but I do use designers when I am incapable of doing it myself.
