Jon Steele Book and Novel

Jon Steele - Author

Jon Steele was born in the American west and worked as an award winning cameraman/editor for ITN for more than twenty years. He has travelled and worked through seventy-eight countries across six continents. War Junkie, his autobiography of a life behind the camera in some of the worst places on earth, was published in 2002 by Transworld and has become a cult classic of war reportage. In 2003, while in Baghdad at the start of the Iraq war, he became disillusioned with television news, put his camera on the ground and quit. He hid out in a small village in the south of France, writing and taking long walks in quiet places. He went back alone to Iraq in 2008 and lived for three months with an American combat unit, recording their lives for the breakthrough documentary film, The Baker Boys: Inside the Surge. He currently lives in Switzerland with his Jordanian-born wife and their two cats, Zeus and Zorro.

If you like Jon Steele you might also like to read books by Ildefonso Falcones, Danielle Trussoni and Justin Cronin.

Author 'Like for Like' recommendations

I read new, exciting writers and established authors before publication and there is a great website full of brilliant books and opinions.


For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
