JON MARKES

Welcome to my writing world.

I am a writer and shopkeeper, living in York, UK. I recently completed my first novel, Casting Long  Shadows, which has been twenty years in the writing.

I will be adding more writing to this site very soon.

    Goodbye

In 2018, I wrote this short piece, which the actor Patricia Jones brilliantly interpreted and filmed as a monologue in October 2020.

 

 

 

Did You Think of Me?

This is another interpretation of my story 'Goodbye'. My friend and Leeford Village co-writer, Michael Braccia turned it into a song and we recorded it in early 2020. 

Here is the song!
