Paul Anthony Jones

Author, writer, musician

Paul Anthony Jones is a writer, musician, and author of word origins guide Haggard Hawks & Paltry Poltroons . He also runs its popular tie-in Twitter account @HaggardHawks. His lifelong love of words began as a child when he was given a dictionary as a Christmas present - he read it cover to cover in a day. He now lives in Jesmond in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, where he still reads far too many books and drinks far too much coffee.
