i write stories.
i wear hats.
Hi! My name is Jonathan and I write books for kids. Some of my books are silly, some are sweet, and some are a blustery mix of both. Storytelling brings me so much joy, and my hope is that my stories will give readers joy too! Here is a little more about me:
What do you do when you're not writing?
- I read A LOT
- I play with my french bulldog (Hugo)
- I find ways to cheer people up
- I draw silly things
- I swing dance
- I watch old movies
- I eat donuts (Yes. Please.)
- I go on adventures (Forests and bookstores FTW)
- I play video games and sports
What are your favorite books?
There are TOO MANY. Some of my favorite book makers are Neil Gaiman, Jacqueline Woodson, Charles M. Schulz, Madeleine L'Engle, Dan Santat, and Bill Watterson.
Why did you become a writer?
I devoured books and comics as a kid, and have been telling stories and playing make-believe ever since. I think everyone has a unique perspective on life and the world, and writing books is how I share mine. Books are powerful. They teach. They give joy, courage, hope. They helped me in many many dark times in my life, and I want to (if I can) give a little light to others. Plus telling stories is SO FUN.
