A published author with his first book under his belt, Jabberweil Hunt is the first in the John Thorn Saga. Ian Shaw has been steadily working on the others in the series. Songs of Angels is the second book in the saga, and the third is Black Judge with a fourth currently being written.
Diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia in 1997, and taking a break of two years to recover, Ian has not let his illness limit him, doing voluntary work including serving as chair of a lively Tenants and Residents Association for three years and as a Director of the Rochdale Federation of Tenant and Residents Associations’ for two years.
Ian resigned his directorship to look after an elderly neighbor who had suffered a crippling stroke. After more than eleven months, the man moved to a bungalow closer to his family, who then cared for him until he passed away a few months later.
These days, Ian continues to work on his books and is an irregular church goer with many friends across the planet who continue to keep him active and challenged.
As Ian quoted from the ‘Messia’s Handbook’: Argue for your limitations and, sure enough, they’re yours.
Ian Shaw writes from the United Kingdom.
