My name is Owen Jones, and I hate writing my bio, but here we go.
I am an Amazon Best-Selling Author from Barry, Wales. I have lived in several countries and travelled in many more. While studying Russian in the USSR in the ’70’s, I hobnobbed with spies on a regular basis. After university, in Suriname, I got caught up in the 1982 coup, when I was accused of being a mercenary. Later, while a company director, I joined the crew of four as the galley slave to sail, from Barry to Gibraltar, on a home-made concrete yacht during Dessert Storm. En voyage, the yacht was almost rammed by a Russian oil tanker, and an American aircraft carrier – The Atlantic Challenger.
Since 2004, I have lived mainly in the UK, Spain and Thailand. I now lead a somewhat quieter life in my wife’s remote, northern farming village writing, editing and increasing the number of translations, and narrations of my novels.
I have long had the nickname of the Amiable Dragon because of my Welsh heritage and my email address, which is based on the domain name of this blog.
