JON MARKES

Welcome to my writings and musings on life.

I am a writer and shopkeeper, living in York, UK, currently completing my first novel, which has been twenty years in the writing.

I will be adding more writing to this site, as well as a regular blog. 

 

MY WRITINGS

GOODBYE

This is a short story, which I wrote in 2017, which has being interpreted by the author / songwriter Michael Braccia 

Michael and I collaborated with the musician / producer Bruford Low to make a recording of the song, Did You Think of Me? with Michael on guitar and vocals, Bruford on keyboards / percussion and me on bass guitar. 

The story can be read here and the song can be listened to here.
