Jon Skovron writes fantasy novels for adults and teens. He is the author, most recently, of the Empire of Storms trilogy, published by Orbit Books. The first book, Hope & Red, which Sci-Fi Bulletin called "A rip-roaring tale of revenge", was published June 2016. The second book, Bane and Shadow, was released on February 28th, 2017. The third book, Blood and Tempest, is due out November, 2017.
He is also the author of several Young Adult novels, including Misfit (2011), which Holly Black called "a diabolically delightful paranormal about a teen girl discovering her inner strength and power — and her potential for darkness". Man Made Boy (2013) was a Junior Library Guild selection and shortlisted for the Inky Reader's Choice Award in Australia. io9.com said "If Man Made Boy hasn’t been optioned for a film or at least a CW series by the end of the year, we can be assured that Hollywood has actually forgotten how to read." The audiobook, which Jon recorded for Random House's Listening Library, was named Best Fiction Read By Author for Publisher Weekly's Listen-Up awards. The sequel, This Broken Wondrous World, also a Junior Library Guild selection, was published August, 2015. Jon's short stories have appeared in publications like ChiZine and Baen's Universe, and more recently in anthologies such as GRIM from Harlequin Teen and Summer Days and Summer Nights from St. Martins Press.
He lives with his two sons just outside Washington DC, where he hosts a regular writing discussion series at the Arlington Public Library.
