Bob Jonas - The Librarian

As a School Librarian

Bob Jonas has been a school librarian for twenty-one Years: Four in Beaverton, Oregon and Seven in China—Shanghai, Beijing, and Hong Kong. In South America he worked for three years in Santiago, Chile, and later, three years in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. After completing a post in Erlangen, Germany, Bob decided to retire, back to the US, to accelerate his vigorous writing habit. He was four years into retirement when a call came from Norway, for one last two-year post, this time for his wife, Susan.

As a Writer

Using his extensive knowledge of expatriate living, and the experiences he had had with overseas kids, Bob was able to write about their frontline exposure to political intrigue, revolution overthrow, and war—in addition to their nonstop challenges of just fitting in.
