Hi, I’m Jon, a software engineer and author based in the UK.

I use this space for blog posts and opinion pieces on non-writing topics.

Be sure to subscribe to get updates right into your email inbox—I will use this Substack for announcements and special content.

I publish writing advice on my other blog Writing Advice, and I post personal and career updates to my personal website.

You may be interested in the books I have written and published:

  • The 24 Laws of Storytelling is a distillation of the “laws” of storytelling, equally as useful for writers as it is interesting for general readers of fiction.

  • Social Intelligence is a book that may have been better titled How Not to Be a Dick at Work (thanks to the Mrs for suggesting that superior title).

  • Anna’s Evidence is my first novel. It is about a young woman named Anna who investigates her father’s murder, and finds herself in a world of danger.
