Jonathan R Hurley

  • Role:Committee Member
  • Location:Rutland
  • Introduction:Jonathan, born in the borough where the Magna Carta was first signed. Followed the Northern star up to Leicester and finally found himself at home with his wife, son and daughter.

    Loves mango ice-cream, passion-fruit j2o’s and strawberries accompanied by Wimbledon tennis. Most infamous moment – when crashing a golf ball through a passing car, most famously known for being an accompanied street entertainer in the middle of Bath, throwing lit torches.

    His wordplay extends to compiling cryptic crosswords and he prefers the lifelines that writing has provided rather than deadlines set for writers. Jonathan is also part of The Bradgate Writers' facilitating team.
