About the Author

Sammy Jones has spent the past two decades covering music, theatre and leisure in Milton Keynes – 13 of those years as leisure editor with the Milton Keynes Citizen newspaper. No-one has stuck at it that long – but then music and leisure isn't what she does, it's who she is.

She has also freelanced for a variety of national titles including music magazines Metal Hammer and Rock Sound, and delivered copy to various other publications – from travel magazines to glossy page-turners.

When not writing, she is usually nattering, and so it shouldn't surprise you that she has spent time as the leisure correspondent for radio stations in the area, and was instrumental in pushing local music onto the regional airwaves.

Currently, Sammy is filling her days overseeing this site and offering PR advice and the benefit of her expertise to those who ask for it, while continuing to compile the weekly leisure section for the Citizen newspaper.

Sammy is also working on a book charting the history of music in Milton Keynes – the facts, the fiction and the anecdotes from a town so rock 'n' roll that Marshall Amplification live here!

It'll be out in 2018.  More details about that coming soon...
