Jon lives in Cambridgeshire, UK, with his lovely wife and two brilliant boys.
In 2017, after winning a short-story competition, Jon finally had the courage to self-publish his first book;
The Witch Of Gallows Oak.
A second, The Chapter-house Beast, followed soon after, with a third, Jonah Naismith and the Witch in The Woods, released recently.
A fourth book is due to be published soon, with several others already in progress (including a sequel to Jonah Naismith)
Jon is also an archaeologist (Dip HE), with interests in mythology, folklore, history, supernatural and paranormal studies and, well, basically anything considered strange or bizarre.
His 'spiritual home' and one of the greatest influences on his life and work is Glastonbury (not the fes

I'd settle in Hobbiton, with frequent trips to Rivendell, avoiding all 'entanglements' with dragons, Nazgul, and orcs - and I'd run a mile from any rings I discovered! I'd sit outside the evening sun with Mithrandir (or Gandalf, as he is known) and smoke a pipe of Long-Bottom Leaf and watch the world go by. I'd perhaps have the odd adventure, but nothing too dangerous. And I'd love to meet Tom Bombadil. (less)

Confessions of a newbie writer

Regret is one of the strangest factors of human existence. It is without doubt a painful thing, experienced by most, at one time or another. Often it feels futile; you cannot change the past, that action can't be undone, cause, effect and consequence have all waded in to make your life seem is if things will never be right again as you wallow in a gloomy pit of despondency, ruing your folly.

Jonah Naismith And The Witch In The Woods by Jon Clynch
"A great read! Highly recommended if you like getting captured in a world of witches, ghosts, fairies and magic. As an adult I thoroughly enjoyed this and will be getting my school age daughter to have a read as this really is one of those 'feel good'" Read more of this review »

One of the oddest books I've ever read! I can't recall if I've read Stephen King before but if I have it was many years ago. But knowing Mr. King's reputation, I thought I had a fair idea of what to expect.
Wrong! It took me a good quarter of the book

An absolute gem. Mr Pryor, in my view, is a national treasure as well as one of the foremost archaeologists of this era. This, however, is not a stuffy, academic text-book, but is accessible to all (Which he has always aimed to do) and is more of a g ...more

After many years of being encouraged by my wife to read John Grisham, I picked up The Client, and am glad I did so. It was compelling, intriguing and exciting, and at times I found myself staying up later than usual to keep reading. There was a depth ...more
