About Philip

   P16   Philip Gwynne Jones is a Welsh author living and working in Venice. He first came to Italy in 1994 when he spent some time working for the European Space Agency in Frascati, a job that proved to be less exciting than he had imagined.

He spent twenty years in the IT industry before realising he was congenitally unsuited to it, and now works as a teacher, writer and translator. He lives in Venice with his wife Caroline.

He enjoys cooking, art, classical music and opera; and can occasionally be seen and heard singing bass with Cantori Veneziani and the Ensemble Vocale di Venezia.

His first book, “The Venice Project”, was published in 2013 and spent several months at number 1 in Amazon’s “Italian Travel” section.

His first novel, “The Venetian Game” is published by Little, Brown, and available from Amazon and all good book stores. “Vengeance in Venice” will follow in 2018.
