About

My name is Jonathan Green and I am a freelance writer of speculative fiction, with more than forty books to my name. Well known for my contributions to the Fighting Fantasy range of adventure gamebooks, and numerous Black Library publications, I have also written fiction for such diverse properties as Doctor Who, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Sonic the Hedgehog and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

I am the creator of the Pax Britannia series for Abaddon Books. The eighth novel set within this alternative steampunk universe featuring the debonair dandy adventurer Ulysses Quicksilver is published in November 2012.

As well as my fiction work, I have also written a number of non-fiction books including Match Wits with the Kids and What is Myrrh Anyway? Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Christmas.

I spend most of my time behind a keyboard in West London.


I live my life by five simple rules or indisputable truths:

1) Carpe Diem.
2) You make your own luck.
3) Work hard, play hard.
4) Good judgment comes from experience. Experience? Well that comes from bad judgment.
5) Dance like nobody's watching.
