About this author

Envision a blend of a mentally ill mind with unsurpassed resiliency and fiery intellect and your result would be the brilliant Jonathan Harnisch. An all-around artist, Jonathan writes fiction and screenplays, sketches, imagines, and creates. Produced filmmaker, fine artist, musician, and published erotica author, Jonathan holds myriad accolades, and his works captivate the attention of those who experience it. Manic-toned scripts with parallel lives, masochistic tendencies in sexual escapades, and disturbing clarities embellished with addiction, fetish, lust, and love, are just a taste of themes found in Jonathan's transgressive literature. Conversely, his award-winning films capture the ironies of life, love, self-acceptance, tragedy and f ...more

“People fall so in love with their pain, they can’t leave it behind. The same as the stories they tell. We trap ourselves.”
Chuck Palahniuk, Haunted

“A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”
Albert Einstein

“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.”
John Lennon

Jonathan Harnisch Thank you, Louise! It was a pleasure to connect with you on Goodreads, where all this is still new to me. It would be great if you could write an unbiased review once you get through my book. It’s wonderful receiving onslaughts of comments and messages through letters, social network platforms, and the book’s blog regarding the book’s originality, brilliance (sigh), and the presence of so many different genres in one work. I’ll have to look into your material as well. It sounds ideal to find a commonality. Marketing and promotions along with my other artistic works can be quite daunting at times, but I’m learning a great deal. Thanks again!

This is all truly exciting and an overall delight. I’ve been giving away several paperbacks in exchange for unbiased reviews. I believe the paperback weighs in at around three pounds! You may download my book on Kindle MatchBook for quite a lighter weight and a lower price. And from there my scattered thoughts trail off….. To reference Alibiography, “Where is Georgie when I need him?…Calling Dr. C.” By the way, the sequel, Second Alibi, may be out this year—so many great things.

You’ve written the first message to me on Goodreads, and for that I am immensely grateful. I try to connect with everyone I can. Rock on and keep in touch! By the way, are you on Twitter? There I go writing too long, too much. Oh, what joy!

Have a wonderful day.


Louise Hart Hi Jonathan, It's a pleasure to connect with you. I am definitely going to read your work. I think my perspective is similar to your own.
