Jon Lawrence

Jon Lawrence is an author, poet, playwright, screenwriter, musician and educator. Originally from South Wales, he now lives in Norfolk.

He has published a number of books and released numerous albums in a variety of different genres. He works with children around eastern England where he is fondly referred to as The Music Man.

In Jon’s own words:

For a long time a number of themes have popped up in my writing. Grief – the ways in which we deal with losing someone; the issue of fathers and sons and how they communicate; childhood – what does it mean to be a child?

Also very important to me is location. I have set my tales in places which speak to my heart but also help to tell the story (almost like another character). My work has been set in New Zealand, Cape Horn in South America, The Arabian Desert and St David’s, the smallest city in the UK.

We very much enjoyed publishing Jon’s Music Man’s Songbooks for children, and we are delighted to be publishing his novella Silence and Songbirds later this year.
