Short biography
Jonathan Hennessey is a writer of fiction and non-fiction. His muse is American History.

Jonathan became a "born again" devotee of history during a cross country bicycle trip in 1995, when he and a friend found themselves inadvertently tracing a route of important John Brown sites such as Harper's Ferry, WV, Sharpsburg, MD, and North Elba, NY. He thought he'd had a workable Civil War education up until that point. But just a nickel's worth of further research uncovered how little he really understood. He does not expect to be able to complete his education in this lifetime.

Jonathan is howlingly untalented at drawing yet swoons in the presence of great illustration. His only hope to work in the graphic novel format was to find some way to make someone who could actually draw perform reasonably close to his bidding.  He is a longtime collaborator with Aaron McConnell

In addition to writing, Hennessey has worked in production and development in the film and television industry. He has appeared on The Rachel Maddow Show and guest-blogged for the National Constitution Society. Jonathan was born on a U.S. Army base in Massachusetts, grew up in New England, and currently lives with his wife and family in California. [adapted from Amazon.com Author Page, retrieved 10/20/2014]
