Writing as: Jon Winters


According to the bio on Amazon: "I was born in Worsley, near Manchester, England, the setting of the first of my five children’s books. I attended Sir William Borlase Grammar School near Marlow, and Godalming Grammar in Surrey, before enrolling at Manchester University. I received a BA in general studies (English and Ancient History). The following year, 1960-61, I enrolled at the University of London and received a Post-Graduate Certificate in Education. After a year teaching in a public school, I emigrated to the United States. While teaching in Jefferson County, Kentucky and the University of Louisville, I gained an MA in English (1965) and a wife. I began teaching at Eastern Michigan University, enrolling at the university of Michigan, where, in due time, I received a PhD. in English language and literature. I had always been interested in the efforts countries went to in order to gain some advantage over their rivals. While at EMU, as it is always known, I wrote a trilogy of espionage novels under the pseudonym, Jon Winters. I didn't think people be thrilled to find a professor writing such works--in fact, the thought that a professor of English could write anything of general interest seemed to impress people. They were published by Avon Books. With all the changes in publishing, I decided to revise and expand the espionage novels, and they are now available through Amazon Books."
