Jon Evans was born in Portsmouth, England and has worked in a fabulously dull series of jobs, none of which constitute a career. While doing these jobs the dream was always to become a writer and there were many false starts and unfinished projects.

With his brother James, he writes military science fiction in the Royal Marine Space Commandos universe. With the launch of Fleet in April 2021, there are now six books in the main series beginning with Commando which kicks off The Deathless War. They're also (slowly!) publishing a series of short stories about Marine X a.k.a. Ten - a fan favourite character with a colourful past.

Electricians don't down tools and say they have electricians block if something is difficult to do. If you think you have writer's block, you don't but you may have encountered a problem. Perhaps you are a pantser and are unsure what to write next because you don't have an outline. Perhaps you are a plotter but haven't quite got the perfect phrase. In the first instance write a better outline and iron out any plot holes, in the second stop wordsmithing. It's just not necessary in most cases. For both, you could try writing another scene or story, or doing some world building. Go for a walk. Just remember, you're not really blocked, if you have a problem at all it's something else so don't get in your head about the terrors of writer's block. (less)

Making another person happy feels great for a human being and writing is on the list of things that you can do that can potentially make thousands of people happy. Plus you get to enjoy the writing and ultimately, you can do so in your pyjamas (unless you write in the local cafe).(less)
