About Rob Lloyd Jones

Coming from London, the British writer Rob Lloyd Jones is a world renowned author of highly regarded children’s fiction. Writing with a colorful and vibrant idiosyncratic style, he really is very much his own author, creating stories that really do stand the test of time. Knowing his young readers, he manages to convey his ideas in an easily accessible manner, whilst also not talking down to his young audience. This has ensured his status as one of the biggest writers within his field to date, giving a worldwide level of fame quite unlike any other.

Early and Personal Life

Whilst he was born in San Francisco, Rob Lloyd Jones grew up in London, as this would come to shape much of his outlook during his formative years. Showing a lifelong affinity for language and the way things are written, it would be no surprise that he’d go on to become a writer of fiction. This would be something that he would develop throughout his education, as he would study Egyptology at University.

Attending University he would learn about hieroglyphics, which he would continue studying whilst on digs working with the Egypt Exploration Society. Later he would also become a senior editor for Usborne, whereby he would also go on to write over thirty books for them as well. This would include numerous non-fiction texts too, as he continues to live and work from his home in London with his wife Sally, along with their son.

Writing Career

Using his background in history and archaeology to help inspire him, Rob Lloyd Jones would take inspiration from his own life and experiences. First creating the ‘Wild Boy’ series in 2012, he would later go on and produce the ‘Jake Atlas’ collection of novels in 2017 as well. This would allow him to become a much sought after writer, seeing him transform into one of the foremost writers within his field to date.

He would also create a collection of picture books for much younger readers too, bringing his own inventive wit to the table in the process. Previously he has also written some episodes for the children’s television show ‘Bernard’s Watch’, which was produced for Carlton Kids. In the past he has also written a number of non-fiction titles too, as he has become a major authority on the subject of history and archaeology.

Wild Boy and the Black Terror

Initially published through the ‘Candlewick Press’ publishing outlet, this would continue on from the previous titles in the ‘Wild Boy’ series, this being the second. First published on the 12th of May in 2015, this would be an exciting adventure mystery novel filled with both action and suspense. The world and the characters have already been well established by now too, allowing it to jump straight into the action.

A fun romp through the streets of Victorian London, this really manages to capture the atmosphere and ambiance of the time. Really making the most of its subject matter, Jones uses his larger than life characters their fullest, really making them work for him. This makes for an extremely compelling story, allowing the city to come to life once again, leaping off the page almost for the reader. With the side characters as well, Jones also manages to give the world an entire and complete feel to it in the process too.

Set in 1842, this story takes place in London, with ‘Wild Boy’ as the master detective there, who solves various crimes. Working alongside Clarissa, a circus acrobat, he was also previously a freak-show performer, but now is the best hope the city has for safety and justice. There’s a mad poisoner out on the loose, as they’re stalking the streets known only as the ‘Black Terror’ to the public at large. It is also possible that the killer is linked to a demon known of as Malphas, and that Wild Boy and Clarissa need to work quickly if they ever hope to stop this evil force of nature. Will they manage to save the day? Where will the killer strike next? What will become of Wild Boy and the Black Terror?

Jake Atlas and the Quest for the Crystal Mountain

This time published through the ‘Walker Books Limited’ publishing house, this provides the third book in the ‘Jake Atlas’ series of books. Brought out on the 1st of April in 2019, this would provide yet more action and adventure for the intrepid explorer travelling across the world. Not only that, but it would also develop his character and the world around him in the process as well, giving it a greater level of depth for the younger readers.

This is an adventure title aimed primarily at younger readers, with elements of Indiana Jones interjected, making for an exciting and action packed story. Charting the exploits of young Jake Atlas once again, it sees him heading off round the world like before, getting into all sorts of scrapes and near-misses. Letting the reader journey alongside him, it really puts them in his shoes, whilst also providing a sense of escape in the process as well. With the lead character already being firmly established too, it has managed to follow on in a similar fashion to before, giving it a sense of immediacy and excitement.

Looking for the all important fifth emerald that will ultimately light the path to the secret and long dormant history of humankind, Jake Atlas has an essential quest ahead of him. Discovering a key clue located in Chin’s Terracotta Army Museum, he manages to retrieve a tablet from a nearby tomb that’s been hidden for ages. That’s when the tomb is blown up by a helicopter, and they then realize that they’re all being pursued by the ‘People of the Snake’ and they’re in danger. Now they must head to Tibet, where the Crystal Mountain awaits them, and gain its ancient knowledge embedded from deep within. Will they manage to get there and save the day in time? Can the evade the deadly forces pursuing them for long enough to do so? What will become of Jake Atlas and the quest for the Crystal Mountain?
