Jon Skovron writes fantasy and adventure novels for adults, teens, and children. He is the author most recently of the children’s novel The Hacker’s Key , published by Scholastic Press.
His next novel, The Queen of Izmoroz (due April, 2021), will be the second book in his Goddess Wars trilogy. The first book, The Ranger of Marzanna , which Publisher’s Weekly called “epic fantasy done right,” was published by Orbit Books in 2020.
Hope and Red , the first book in his previous Empire of Storms trilogy is currently being released as a free, serialized audiobook, and can be found on Apple Podcasts, or wherever you download your podcasts.
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.
