In three words: passionate, curious, creative.

In my daytime I'm the Creative Director at one of the leading online gaming companies in the world and
my free time I like to spend with my family, Lenah and Aiden, and when there's time I like to write and play tennis. We live on the mediterranean island of Malta where the sun (almost) always shines.

Here you can find a couple of free short stories and more information about my books: http://jonaswrites.com/my-books/

And why not check out my official site and blog at http://www.jonaswrites.com

Have a nice day! /JE.

Jonas Eriksson Glad to see lots of people are borrowing The Wake-Up Call on Amazon Prime. The Kindle crowd must be growing in giant leaps.

By the way, while Hollywood PA is at the mercy of my first editors' red pen, I've already started novel three and I'm enjoying the writing more than ever before.

Hope you're having a great weekend. Tomorrow it's Monday, let's not make it matter too much.

Best,
Jonas
