Jonathan French is the author of the Autumn’s Fall Saga and The Grey Bastards.
His debut novel, The Exiled Heir, was nominated for Best First Novel at the Georgia Author of the Year Awards in 2012. His second book, The Errantry of Bantam Flyn, rose to #6 on the Kindle Norse/Viking Fantasy bestseller list, proudly sharing the top ten with Joe Abercrombie.
His newest work, The Grey Bastards, is best described as “Sons of Anarchy…with half-orcs”. It won the 2nd annual Self-Published Fantasy Blog Off in 2017, and was soon acquired by Crown Publishing. Bennett Coles, author of Virtues of War from Titan Books, praised the book, stating: “Anchored by a trio of complex and unique heroes who won my loyalty in the very first pages, the story explodes into action and doesn't let up.”
An engaging and energetic speaker, Jonathan has led panel discussions at conventions such as DragonCon, TimeGate, and CONjuration. Recently, he had the pleasure of being featured in an episode of the web-series Retroblasting as a consultant on the cultural impact of the Dungeons & Dragons franchise.
Jonathan currently resides in Atlanta with his wife and son.
