Admittedly, Jonathan has done things arseways most of his life, from completing a BA in Literature in his thirties to fitting teeth brackets (30's, porcelain). During this general confusion, Jonathan has had various short stories published. Jonathan suffers from photophobia though has a tendency towards fireworks. Originally from Limerick, Ireland, he now lives the reclusive life in Toledo, Spain, as a bearded hermit, with his wife and three daughters. He is known to be found in

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

Revelation

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4...

Revelation is proving to be a difficult book to tease out of itself. It's one of those books that looks good from a distance (as in I know what happens over the large arc) but look at the rainbow a little closer and you will find another very faint rainbow below the mother rainbow.
Character motives are proving a challenge. I like unreliable characters bu... Read more of this blog post »

“I’m astounded by the fact that humankind can shoot its children in the face, then send food and blankets to the same blinded children.”

Jonathan Dunne answered a question about Revelation:
Revelation by Jonathan  Dunne
Yes, Jim, of course, just like my previous books. Firstly, ebook format, then a week or two later in print, probably Amazon. I learned a new word today - troglodyte.
Take care,
Jon

“Yes, Cabbage: prison diplomacy. It’s called offering the newcomer a very warm welcome. You can tell Mares that I made lots of friends at two in the morning on the first night and continued making friends in the back of the laundry room and if I didn’t make friends there they would shove me into an industrial tumble-dryer and spin me around a few times until I was dizzy enough to make lots of friends at the same time.”
