Lloyd Jones (Welsh writer)
Lloyd Jones (born 1951) is a contemporary novelist from Wales.
Born at Bryn Clochydd, Gwytherin, near Llanrwst, he lives at Llanfairfechan and has formerly worked on a farm and as a newspaper editor, a lecturer and a mencap nurse. He has so far published two novels, both through Welsh publishing house Seren. Mr Vogel (2004), winner of the McKitterick Prize, was based partly upon Jones' walking completely around Wales, a 1000-mile journey (he is the first Welsh person to do so). His second book, Mr Cassini (2006), was partially inspired by his walking across Wales in seven different directions; it won the Wales Book of the Year award 2007. His third book, My First Colouring Book, a collection of short stories and essays, was published in October 2008. He published a novel in Welsh, Y Dŵr, with Y Lolfa in June 2009.
