Philip Gwynne Jones was born in Swansea and grew up in South Wales. He spent twenty years in the IT industry before realising he was congenitally unsuited to it, and now works as a writer and translator. He lives in Venice with his wife Caroline, and a modestly friendly cat called Mimì.
He enjoys cooking, art, classical music and opera; and can occasionally be seen and heard singing bass with Cantori Veneziani. He also likes classic horror films and listens to far too much Italian progressive rock.
His first novel, “The Venetian Game”, was a Waterstones Thriller of the Month, and a Times Top 5 bestseller. “The Venetian Legacy”, the fifth book in the Nathan Sutherland series, is available from April 2021.
