Author Biography

Jonathan Ferry

Jon fell in love with the game of chess when he was introduced to it in the 4th grade and he has loved it ever since. He took his knowledge of the game to the next level by completing all 3,000+ of the chess lessons on Chess.com multiple times each.

At the same time, he has developed a deep love for books and the power of stories to impact people at the deepest level.

Chess Tales is the product of these two loves. What started as analogies for life lessons used with his three daughters as he taught them chess bloomed into more elaborate stories that connect with our identities and what we choose to value in life.

Jon is a member of the St. Louis Chess Club, which is near where he lives with his wife and three girls.
