Jonathan Macho

A young Cardiffian lad who wanted to be an 'Author' long before he could pronounce the word correctly, my overactive imagination has been keeping reality at a comfortable distance for years now. I've been published in a charity collection of short stories by PageTurners India, have had my work shown in the Abacus space in Cardiff by the wonderful Modern Alchemists, and worked for a few years in the Sherman Theatre's Young Writers Group. I'm also penning a zombie novel in my spare time, am the resident skit-writer for Cardiff University's Sinatra society, and love taking high abstract concepts and slamming them into the mundane at high speeds. If you fancy reading about the fantastic, wondrous, horrifying or frankly mental, and don't mind having a laugh at the same time, give my work a looksee. You know. If you want.
