About this author

I’ve been a writer for well over 25 years, now; as a journalist, short-story writer and freelance copywriter. I can now add author to that list.

In May of 2011 I released Towards Yesterday, my first novel. I’ve also released a compilation of short stories (Dangerous Places) and, my most recent project, the first book in a new series, the post-apocalyptic adventure Extinction Point.

“The level of some people’s intelligence never failed to amaze her.”
Paul Antony Jones, Extinction Point

“wasn’t it truly ironic that the sole surviving human—that’s what she felt like, after all—would be a journalist? The biggest news story ever and there was no one left alive to tell it to. It really was just too much.”
Paul Antony Jones, Extinction Point

“The screen wobbled as he picked up the laptop and carried it a short distance before turning the lens to face out through”
Paul Antony Jones, Extinction Point
