Julia Jones writes adventure stories and biography. Her first book was a biography of the detective novelist Margery Allingham which was re-published in paperback as The Adventures of Margery Allingham. She inherited a unique archive of material relating to Margery’s father Herbert Allingham, an anonymous writer of instalment fiction for the Northcliffe penny papers and will finally publish the results of her research as Fifty Years in the Fiction Factory, autumn 2012. In the sailing community she’s best known as the owner of Arthur Ransome’s Peter Duck and she’s used this link as the inspiration for her Strong Winds adventure trilogy. Julia has reviewed for the TES and other national newspapers and magazines.
Julia’s ebook publications to date are: The Strong Winds Trilogy: The Salt Stained Book, A Ravelled Flag and Ghosting Home.
