Jon Mayhew hails from the misty marshes of Wirral, described as a haunt of 'godless people' even in the days of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight! He spent most of his childhood playing in the ruins of a Victorian zoo and when he wasn't doing that, he was writing or telling stories. He loves traditional music and running too. which you'd realise is a useful combination if you'd heard him play the mandolin.
His first book, Mortlock, was published by Bloomsbury in April 2010 and he is currently engaged in selling it by hand at any school, bookshop, folk festival, flower show, museum that'll have him.
Jon's second book for Bloomsbury, The Demon Collector is published in March 2011.
