Jon Mayhew hails from the misty marshes of Wirral, described as a haunt of ‘godless people’ even in the days of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight! He spent most of his childhood playing in the ruins of a Victorian zoo and when he wasn’t doing that, he was writing or telling stories. He loves traditional music and running too… which you’d realise is a useful combination if you’d heard him play the mandolin.
His first book, “Mortlock,” was published by Bloomsbury in April 2010 followed by “The Demon Collector” in 2011. “Mortlock” has won four regional awards and was shortlisted for the Waterstone’s Children’s Book of the Year 2010 as well as being longlisted for numerous other awards!
