Born in England, Jon Gibbs now lives in New Jersey, where he’s ‘Author in Residence’ at Lakehurst Elementary School.
A member of several writing groups, including SCBWI, GSHW and the Liberty States Fiction Writers, he’s the founder of The New Jersey Authors' Network (NJAuthorsNetwork.com) and FindAWritingGroup.com.
Jon’s debut novel, Fur-Face (Echelon Press), a middle grade fantasy for boys, was nominated for a Crystal Kite Award. His blog, An Englishman in New Jersey (http://jongibbs.livejournal.com), is read in over thirty countries.
When he’s not chasing around after his children, Jon can usually be found hunched over the computer in his basement office. One day he hopes to figure out how to switch it on.
