Jon Grainge LBIPP   A brief introduction.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

From an early age I was always interested to become a military pilot. This I managed serving in Her Majesty's Royal Air Force for three years flying both jet and piston aircraft. This incredible adventure was followed by many years involved with boat charter and sales throughout Europe where I became a 'knowledge' on Dutch steel cruisers. 

I then emigrated to the south of Spain (Andalucia) where over a period of 5 years became involved in the marketing of the local Government in Benalmadena and the sales in 'off-plan' properties in and around Marbella but the crash of 2006/7 redirected my resolve towards the field of photography and writing. I studied photography and gained membership to the British Institute of Professional Photographers. Embracing the latest technology in self-publishing I joined blurb in San Francisco and began publishing books and magazines.  It was not until 2012 when the call of the novel gripped me, so began a series of short adventure novels based on current political events which I marketed under the banner of "The European Photo-Book Collection".

I entered into the world of calendars in late 2015 when I teamed up with a well respected German  publisher, Calvendo, who are one of Europe's foremost calendar publishers, who specialise in high quality bespoke calendars in both A3 and A4 formats.

I would graciously invite you to visit my work on the relevant sales sites, Calvendo, Amazon ( .com and .co.uk) and blurb to view and purchase  my publications.

Adventure Novels

All my action adventure novels are based on political situations current at the time of writing. Most are set in the Middle-East, North Africa or the Mediterranean Basin where life can be unsettled and interesting to say the least.

Several of the plots revolve around a character by the name of Group Captain Dick Barton who was an ex-RAF pilot seconded to MI6. A sort of James Bond figure.

All the novels are published with blurb of San Francisco and may be viewed and purchased through Amazon with most credit/debit cards.
