Jonathan Hill is an author from Manchester, UK.

His work isn’t confined to one genre, but he has already published a number of gay literary fiction books to high critical acclaim. His debut novel 'FAG', a hard-hitting story set in an English boarding school in the 1930s, was named as the overall winner in the Self-Published and Small Press 2014 Book Awards.

He has also penned the hit comedy series of Maureen books, in addition to numerous short stories and 100-word drabbles. Jonathan firmly believes that writing should not only entertain but also enhance and change the way readers view the world.

When he’s not writing and working as a pharmacist, he enjoys painting, photography and going to the theatre.

Manchester Musings

Idle on a Saturday night for the first time in ages, I went for a long walk around Manchester city centre. Along the way, I recorded snippets of what I encountered, each a fleeting detail or a tantalising glimpse of a bigger story that you’ll have to make up yourself.

Here are my ambulatory scribblings:
