I am looking forward to a little run of shows in some lovely venues around the country to promote the new book about my desert treks, Good Grief – Five Deserts in Search of My Father and I. Really looking forward to talking to audiences about the treks and my relationship with my father in what I hope will be a poignant yet funny show which will include some music, talk and film.

ASK JON! – EPISODE No.2
It’s time again, for you to ask me any questions you have about … anything you wish to ask! If you have a question about writing, a question about a particular poem I have written, about my method or anything else which I deem appropriate (hahaha!) then, write it down below and in a couple of days I will broadcast another episode of Ask Jon with the answers.
The question will receive a signed copy of my illustrated novella, Bisha. The answers will be posted on my Facebook page.
HERE IT IS! The Music Man’s Songbook 2
two years after the success of the first book, here are some new songs for the little ones. They include The Tickle Man and Harry the Hedgehog – two particular favourites with the hundreds of children I visit each week. It is full of really lovely Illustrations by Chris Skinner (Lestaret) and comes with a CD so that you can sing along with your children at home. I love writing novels but there is something special about creating silly songs which bring so much pleasure to children. I am lucky to see these reactions every day at the nurseries and pre-schools I visit, I hope you get a chance to see the same reaction with your own children when you give them The Music Man’s Songbook 2. You can get your copy by visiting my writing page.
