Jonathan Macho writes mostly short stories, but has also worked with the Sherman Theatre’s Young Writer’s Group and his first novel, The Serpent’s Tongue, a part of the Lucy Wilson Mysteries series, is being released by Candy Jar Books this year. He met Sophie during their Creative Writing MA at Cardiff University and they are both members of the A Zoom of Our Own writers group. He tends to read genre fiction of all stripes, regularly dipping his toe into Horror, Sci Fi and Fantasy, and has far too many comics and graphic novels, but loves stories of any genre that can make him laugh, cry, or preferably both.
