I am now also writing for Young Adults under pen name Jon Dunne. If you like stories with a flare of fantasy and a hint of horror, then watch this space. Check out my new book and provisional blurb:
I am dedicating all my time to my YA fiction for the foreseeable future as that’s where my heart and soul is these days (always has been when I think about it).
My pen name ‘Jon Dunne’ will be writing for younger audiences while you can find my adult fiction (which also possesses fantasy, but a different kind) under ‘Jonathan Dunne’.

2017 has been a year of false starts for me regarding my writing. But it has also been a year of revelation!
After much deliberation, I have decided not to write adult fiction for the foreseeable future. I am going back to my roots which have always been firmly rooted in Young Adult Fantasy. I need the magic! It is where my head and heart are at and always have been, if I think about it. I started out writing horror for the YA short story market in my late teens/twenties.
I’m currently working on a Young Adult novel which I’m very excited about and loving the worlds of gothic and mystery.
This might come as a surprise to some of you and I understand if you abandon ship, but I hope even more of you will jump on board.
Be careful for what you wish for because sometimes it just might come untrue.
Betty Beasley, A.K.A Queen B, is a raving, self-delusional, pipe-smoking, bitch-boss from Hell who suffers from major delusions of grandeur. Queen B is the public toilets supervisor at Dublin Airport. Nobody is more dedicated to the smooth flow of human effluent than Queen B.
Queen B makes the mistake of sacking a cleaner who happens to dabble in black magic, and plays with voodoo dolls at the weekend.
Jokingly, Queen B chucks a fifty cent down her personal state-of-the-art Japanese toilet and makes three wishes:
Wish 1. Meet a man (any man).
Wish 2. Dada wakes up from his two-year coma.
Wish 3. Have one last chat with deceased Mama.
Queen B’s wishes come true but not how she had planned…
