Jonathan French

     Author


Jonathan French is the author of the Autumn’s Fall Saga, an epic fantasy series. His debut novel, The Exiled Heir, was hailed as “…a combination of pen strokes that successfully resurrect the old world fantasy concepts of Beowulf, Prydain, Oz and Masters of the Universe.” His second book in his Autumn’s Fall Saga, The Errantry of Bantam Flyn, launched in July 2014 on the Kindle bestseller lists at #6 in Norse/Viking fantasy and #36 in Myths/Legends. Born in Tennessee, Jonathan began reading comics at an early age. (Conan the Barbarian Annual #11 was his first.) His love of fiction, folklore and by-gone days was further fueled when his family relocated to the United Kingdom. At the age of nine, Jonathan found himself crawling over castle ramparts, visiting old churchyards and getting neck strain marveling at towering cathedrals. He returned to the U.S. as a teenager where he survived parochial school and a rebellious year in New York City (where he unknowingly met his future wife), before earning his degree from Brevard College in the captivating wilds of Western North Carolina. Like many fantasy novelists, he originally developed his magical setting of Autumn’s Fall as a backdrop for the roleplaying games he ran for his friends. After submitting his creations to a once-mighty RPG company, he received an offer to purchase his intellectual property. Ultimately, he chose to keep his brainchildren close to home and began writing the Autumn’s Fall novels in earnest.His greatest literary influences are Robert E. Howard and Lloyd Alexander.He currently lives and writes in Atlanta with his wife and toddling son, who can already throw a mean d10. His third book, a gritty sorcery and swords epic separate from Autumn’s Fall, is scheduled to launch in Spring 2015. Other current projects include the third Autumn’s Fall novel, a YA super-heroes series, and occasional freelance gigs for RPGs. You can read about Jonathan’s work at www.jonathanfrenchbooks.com.
