Tony Jones has been a school librarian for thirty years and a horror fanatic for much longer. In 2014 he co-authored a history book called The Greatest Scrum That Ever Was, which took almost ten years to research and write. Not long after that mammoth job was complete, he began reviewing horror novels for fun and has never looked back. He also writes for Horror DNA, occasionally Ink Heist, and in the past Horror Novel Reviews. He curates Young Blood, the YA section of the Ginger Nuts of Horror. Which is a very popular worldwide resource for children’s horror used by school librarians and educationalists internationally.
Tony is a Scotsman in exile who has lived in London for three decades. And credits discovering SE Hinton and Robert Cormier as a 13-year-old for his huge appetite for books. When not reviewing he is reading and loves nothing more than encouraging children to get lost in a book and dump their phone.
