Author of Mr Vogel
Lloyd Jones was born on a farm in Hiraethog, on the edge of the Denbigh Moors. He has been a journalist, a mencap nurse, a farm worker and an attendant at a chamber of horrors. After an alcohol-fuelled breakdown in 2001 he became the first person to walk completely around Wales, a journey of a thousand miles. His first novel, Mr Vogel (2005) won the McKitterick first novel award and was shortlisted for the Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse prize for comic fiction. He lives in Abergwyngregyn on the North Wales coast.
