Introduction
As a writer, Jon has penned over two dozen novels for various houses like St. Martin's Press, Kensington/Pinnacle, Harlequin/Gold Eagle, and many more.  He is best known for his critically-acclaimed Lawson Vampire series of hardboiled supernatural espionage novels that are current ebook bestsellers on both Amazon and Barnes & Noble.  Check out his ebooks here for Kindle: http://amzn.to/lawsonbks and here for the Nook:http://bit.ly/lawsonv  Be sure to sign up for his FREE newsletter, Boston Nocturne by going here: http://jonfmerz.net/about-jon/boston-nocturne-newsletter/ 

As a producer, Jon formed New Ronin Entertainment with his good friend Jaime Hassett in 2007 and they are starting production on THE FIXER (based on Jon's Lawson vampire series) in 2012, an entirely independent production.  

As a ninja, Jon has studied authentic ninjutsu for over twenty years with Mark Davis of the Boston Martial Arts Center in Boston, MA.  During a trip to Japan in February 2003, Jon earned his 5th degree shidoshi license directly from the 34th Grandmaster of Togakure-ryu Ninjutsu, Masaaki Hatsumi.  Jon has taught defensive tactics to a wide range of clients, including members of the US State Department, Department of Justice, and the Bureau of Prisons, as well as other agencies, military units, first responders, and more. 

Prior to becoming a writer, Jon served in the US Air Force, worked for the US Government, and handled executive protection for a variety of Fortune 500 clients.
