About Jon Neal

My novel has been released and is on sale on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.


I am a recent graduate of Goddard College of Plainfield, Vermont with an MFA in creative writing. I had three excellent advisers, Nicky Morris, Jeanne Mackin, and Darcey Steinke. Jeanne Mackin is the author of the Louisa May Alcott mystery series and a historic fiction novelist. Darcey Steinke is a novelist of such novels as Milk, and Suicide Blonde, a NY Times and LA Times reviewer of novels. She teaches at Columbia and Princeton. My thesis novel was Ragman's Roll a Civil War story set on the western front of the war between states. It has multiple layers of character development with the sub text being freedom for all including the slaves.

I am also an artist. I have shown at the Sapere Gallery Chicago and the Art Next Gallery in Chelasea, New York with such artist as Ai Weiwei, Anton Kandisky, Mack Eco and others. To do a traveling art show on the Environment to tour the world, starting in Miami and NYC. I am also the inventor of a new design principle in art design entitled, Directions. My thesis paper for my MA from Vermont College of the UI&U, Light from Design, was published in 2008 by UMI ProQuest.

I wrote many an essay for my two masters. The most notable was Meat and Potatoes of a novel. I have had two excerpts published in the Pitkin Review, Mother Africa - 2010 spring issue, and Nashville - 2012 spring issue.
