Jonathan Austen


I'm the author of A Tale of Hope and Adventure, a middle-grade children's fantasy series. I live in the Valley of the Sun - Scottsdale, Arizona with my two cats Mac and Tosh.

I spend my time writing, reading, gaming, geeking out over nerd culture, hanging out on social media, and meeting readers. I like to hike in the desert, exercise regularly, travel and share excellent food and conversation with awesome people. I was raised just outside of Boston, and after 28 years of snow, I traded it in for perpetual sunshine.

I enjoy chatting with readers, so say hello.
