Jon Evans is a UK indie author who always wanted to become a writer and there were many false starts and unfinished projects along the way.
The first three books in a space marine series about the adventures of the Royal Marine Space Commandos – Commando, Guerrilla and Ascendant – were co-written with his brother, James.
Jon has also written Thieftaker which is the first book in the Edrin Loft Mysteries.
Jon has experienced great success with Amazon ads to the extent that he and his brother are already generating a reliable, ongoing monthly income.
