Not to be confused with Lloyd Jones (New Zealand author).

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.[1] 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.[2]
