Dylan H. Jones is the author of the best-selling Detective Tudor Manx series, set on the idyllic Welsh island of Anglesey.
Dylan’s debut novel, Anglesey Blue, was an immediate hit, taking the Amazon #1 spot in Welsh Crime on the first day of release. The novel was also long listed for the Guardian Newspaper’s prestigious readers’ choice award, Not the Booker Prize.
His following two novels, Doll Face and Shadow Soul soon became firm, crime fiction fan favorites, and established DI Manx as a fresh, compelling protagonist in Welsh Noir.
Dylan, a native Welsh speaker, was born on the Isle of Anglesey and left at the age of eighteen to study at Leeds University. His love of storytelling and writing began at a young age when he slipped a copy of Graham Greene’s Brighton Rock from his father’s bookshelf.
Fast forward a few decades and several roles as creative director and ad agency copywriter, he now lives in Oakland, California with his wife Laura and daughter Isabella. Dylan loves great coffee and fine wines, and can often be found around the coffee shops of Oakland conversing with the locals and seeking inspiration in his next shot of espresso.
