Simon B Jones - Simon Jones - A Passion For Ancient History

Simon B Jones

Combining his love of ancient history and writing for amusement, Simon B Jones recently published his first book, The Battles are the Best Bits, a narrative history. 

A graduate in science, Jones began writing about travel and compiling short stories, mainly for family and friends, and was encouraged by his mother. But the movie Gladiator awakened his desire to find out more about ancient history, and not just casually. After almost a decade of research, his debut book was born.

His work has been well received, and Jones is currently working on a novel.

Simon B Jones writes from his home where he "..can see the garden out of the window and have a nearby supply of coffee." He is married and lives in Cambridgeshire, England.
