About Jonathan Trapman:
Author since aged 9.
First novel The Bull got fair marks at school, noting author in need of improvement.
Began his professional career as a photojournalist, working for some of the top titles in Fleet Street. Among them the London Times, Daily Express and a very short, boring stint with the Sun. Exposed to the propaganda and half truths demanded from photo/journalists in the ‘70s and 80s, his soul was worth more than the tarnished shekels of Corporate Cronyism.
Becoming one of the industry’s foremost photographers he enjoyed getting to know the world, its peoples and a far wider vision of life on earth on others’ behalf and at others’ expense.
He has appeared on TV and radio including BBC, France Inter and online radio. He has been invited to creative and literary conferences across the globe.
In 2013 he, in partnership with his wife, published a ground breaking, first ever, in nearly 1000 years, translation of 10th century Sufi founder/mystic saint Hoja Ahmed Yassawi’s Diwani Hikmet.
He is currently occupied writing the remaining 6 books in the heptalogy opus The Freedom Cycle
