About Me


Jonathan James Olivier

What’s your story?  Let me tell it for you.

I just need 10 words, a theme (it can be a genre, a favourite movie or book), and one song and I will write a story just for you.

I am open to writing for anyone and everyone.  Contact me at jonathanjames@olivierfiction.com and I’ll get working on your story.


My name is Jonathan James Olivier.  I was raised in California, educated at UCLA, and now I live in Japan where I work as an English teacher.  I am a husband to a beautiful woman and father to an amazing daughter.

I am also a writer and aspiring novelist.

On this website you will find a selection of the things I have written recently.  In addition to the stories from 10 words I also have a collection of my current fiction, some opinion pieces, and book reviews.

I offer editing services to any and all levels of writing as well, so please feel free to contact me for details.

I manage two other blogs as well.  One is about my fitness advice and how to achieve a lean body lifestyle without needing a gym.  The other chronicles my adventures as a foreigner teaching preschool children in Japan.  You can find out more details about these sites by clicking the ‘blogs’ page on the left of the screen.

Do not hesitate to email me at the address on the top of the page with any other questions, comments or requests.  I am open to hear from anyone!

  1. Having just read your post about blogging and followers, I certainly don’t expect you to follow me, why would you be interested in random posts and pages about cats, Greece, me living on a boat, and writing for yacht magazines? But I would like to follow you as you seem like an intelligent and erudite person, who might answer a question now and then that I might put to you…..

  2. Hello, I wanted to invite you over to a blogging event I’m holding on a monthly basis, it would be absolutely lovely having you partake as well. It consists of you documenting your life every month through your memories.
    I already posted my writing about my month and I have the rules here: https://thoughtsofasociallyanxiousextrovert.wordpress.com/my-monthly-memories-monthly-blogging-event/ It’d be lovely reading one of your My Monthly Memories posts. Thanks again and I hope you have a wonderful day!
