Rhys Jones was born in 1955 and grew up in a mining village in South Wales with his nose in a book and his head in the clouds. He managed to subdue his imagination long enough to carve out a career in medicine, writing whenever the chance arose.
In 1994, writing as Dylan Jones, he published his first thriller for adults, Thicker Than Water, which was subsequently made into a film by the BBC.
A growing desire to move away from adult thrillers and write for children is what currently preoccupies him.The Obsidian Pebble is the first book featuring Oscar Chambers and the haunted house he and his mother inherit.
Rhys A Jones has three grown up children and lives in darkest West Wales with his understanding (very) wife.
