Jonathan Reeves was born in Wiltshire, UK, where he grew up as part of a large family. He now lives and works just outside London. As a child growing up in the 1990s, he was immersed within the growing world of video games and the Internet, which combined with his love of reading and writing to give him an unorthodox take on storytelling. His hobbies include cooking and baking, game design, and political activism.
