Rhys A 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.
Although The Obsidian Pebble is his first young person's book, he has written and published under the name of Dylan Jones (gory adult thrillers) and now writes also as DC Farmer (contemporary urban fantasy, Feb 2014). Sometimes all three of his personas will start speaking at once, at which point he lies down in a dark room and waits for the feeling to pass.
A growing desire to move away from adult thrillers and write for children is what currently preoccupies him. The Merryweathers Mysteries is a series for 9-14 year olds and now includes the Curse of Borage-Doone as well as Dreables. The Obsidian Pebble, the first in a quintet featuring eleven-year-old Oz Chambers whose family inherits a 'haunted' house, was released in October 2013. The second, The Beast Of Seabourne follows in 2014
