Jonoboyle

I am inspired by all things creative; moreover literary, but above all historical, and more precisely the wisdom dug from the traditions of ancient Greece, Rome, and other remarkable civilisations which laid the foundations for our modern world. I graduated from Keele University with Classical Studies and History B.A.(hons.), in 2000. I am a strong believer in the Gaia Hypothesis of Professor James Lovelock. I have had many occupations, none of which I have truly loved.I shall release my second work: Fables of Freedom, in early 2014. This is a series of short stories to entertain and inform, they are the basis of my life’s philosophies and interests. They are personal accounts of the years I spent developing as a young man; after discovering to my dismay that my apprenticeship at 17 had me assist in manufacturing components for an unnecessary armament’ industry. I found this to be firmly against all I believed in. It has galvanised a life of political and social interaction, with the desire to learn and to pass on knowledge and wisdom, indeed, now-days, to a youth bedazzled by technology, mind controlling advertising, and undefined politics. Like any new generation you are struggling for acceptance and direction. After these works I shall, happily, concentrate on my life’s ambition of penning dramatic and historical novels.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

My work can speak for itself:

To a young person entering upon maturity, there are many unknowns. Fables is a mad, youthful dash for freedom, which turns to analysis, judgement, learning and decision. Fables surprises, with enlightening characters, earnestly tackling their individual adventures; it is thought provoking and amusing. It is not for the closed minded. It is bemused by the idea of normal life.

To a young person entering upon maturity, there are many unknowns. What to wear, who to hang out with, what to listen to, which substances should be taken, where can I go next, do we chose our diet or does society and omnipotent marketing – what on earth to do for work! Do we have a choice anyway? When you are not the average, average person – because as we all know, our backgrounds never fulfil media’s illusive social and family ideals – how do you make sense of the mixed messages of the world, or carve a future space for yourself within it? Fables is a mix of tales which grapples with these dilemmas. A mad, youthful dash for freedom, turns to analysis, judgement, learning and decision. Fables surprises, with enlightening characters, earnestly tackling their individual adventures; it is thought provoking and amusing. It is not for the closed minded. It is bemused by the idea of normal life.
