About J.J. Overton


J.J. Overton is from Coventry, in England’s industrial West Midlands.


He served an apprenticeship as a precision toolmaker, studied mechanical engineering, and is a Freeman of the City of Coventry. He was a director of Grey and Rushton Precision Tools, and subsequently was involved with quality control at industrial giants, Alfred Herbert Machine Tools, Massey-Ferguson, and the structural composites division of Courtaulds.


In later years, he was a self-employed stained glass artist and more recently has begun devoting more time to writing a series of science fiction books.


His native Warwickshire, with its rich, and sometimes turbulent history, is an enormous influence on his writing. There are many more books in his 'to write' list, including two more historical novels.

JJ is married, and has two adult sons.
