Welcome to the lair of the Amiable Dragon!
Hello, and welcome to my lair!
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.
Megan Publishing Services
These days, I write books. I have written about 125 manuals and 50+ novels. They cover various genre, which I won’t go into here. I published them all through Megan Publishing Services. There is a link to it below (our sister blog). I will say though that those original 175 books have now been translated and narrated into over 1,200 publications. Follow the link for more details.
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. Welcome to my lair 🙂
