To appear less important, I have written my bio in 1st person. I am not a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author. Originally from Limerick, Ireland, I now live in Toledo, Spain. I hold a BA in English Literature, though I occasionally have to put it down to make tea and coffee. I am known to be found in the local cemetery where most of the people are dead. Though

Hello Dawn,
I have to say no, though, sometimes I might open a page of one of my books and read a line and catch myself smiling. This only happens a long time after the book is complete, when it has seeped from my system. Many lines I can't remember writing. The act of writing is, for me, being induced into a trance...on a good day. When I'm writing its how I see the world so maybe that's why I tend not to laugh in the moment.
Thanks for you question.

Hi Ruth,
I find time every day to write and if I don't write I feel at odds with the world. Im an early bird, so I get up early and try to find an hour and something to write. I find the time to write. Normally, in creating a book, I like to work it in layers. Firstly, I create chapter outlines. Then I fill out those chapters. Then I will go over the book again, slipping in nuances, little details that bring the book to life. Probably 4 layers to every book. You could say re-edit, but that comes last as a possible 5th and final pass over the writing, but until this point, it is constantly adding and growing. This 5th revisión is strictly editing, but sometimes I do slip in a succint detail that roots the story even further.
Thanks
Jon(less)

Stephen King pulled this title from the shelves following some school shootings. I see how it might incite the wrong person at the wrong time. But I think it's a real pity to make any work of art a scapegoat for wrongdoing. I think what makes this b ...more

“But some jokes are hilarious until they become true and they’re not so funny anymore.”
Jonathan Dunne, Lighthouse Jive

“My old man always told me never do anything during the day that will keep you awake at night.”
Jonathan Dunne

“Even if we don’t have a clock, we’re all on the clock – from clocking in and out at work to clocking in and out of this world.”
Jonathan Dunne, Hearts Anonymous

“Today is the day that I learn women have an innate connection to Mother Nature; a sixth sense for the bitter-sweet cycle of life, whereas men are challenged with five.”
Jonathan Dunne, Finding Jesus

“My wife’s contractions, labour, and birth was the most intense biology class of my life; it certainly topped Glugger’s biology classes where we did nothing but burn litmus paper. My wife’s waters just broke! Who cares if it’s alkaline or acidic!”
Jonathan Dunne, Finding Jesus

“Okay, that’s it! I’ve had enough! I’m going to trade in my Biblical Studies PhD for a hot dog!”
Jonathan Dunne, Finding Jesus

“Look,’ Jesus points out, ‘do you think the guy cleaning the public toilets really wants to be dealing with people’s shit on a Monday morning? No, he does it because it’s in his contract. I’m dealing with people’s shit twenty-four-seven because,’ turning to the hobbled crow and speaking sarcastically, ‘it’s in my contract.”
Jonathan Dunne, Finding Jesus

“The human being is not being human.”
