About the Author

Tracing his proud Castilian Sephardi roots to Toledo, Spain and Algeria, Israeli born, at the age of thirteen, Jon Stevens Alon's secular family immigrated to Brooklyn, New York. Unable to fit in and resentful of the fanatic Israel hating Eastern European Hasidic ghetto Jews, Jon gravitated toward young Sicilian teenagers, and in an effort to belong to the gang of aspiring hoods, thanks to his Hispanic looks and Middle Eastern culture he passed easily as an Italian named "Frankie." Jon returned to Israel to proudly serve in the IDF as a 105mm Centurion tank gunner combat veteran. Previously married to a Puerto Rican in NY, the last 10 years Jon is married to a Brazilian Christian Evangelist born in the state of Bahia known as the cultural heart of Brazil, who he credits with blessing his life with love and joy and therefore his mission is to make her happy. In between the two marriages he was with a Cuban lady, which in addition to being an avid Salsa dancer in NYC, serving as the writer/producer of ALGO ESPECIAL: VAYA! a series Latin TV Variety Specials for Canal 47 (NY) sponsored by Faberge featuring the hottest Puerto Rican and Cuban Salsa bands including Tito Puente, Hector "El Cantante" Lavoe, Ray Barreto, Richy Ray and Bobby Cruz, Johnny Pacheco & his singer Pete "El Conde" Rodriguez, Larry Harlow & his singer Ismael Miranda, Willie Colon, Justo Batancourt, etc., relationships, in depth familiarity with both Spanish and Portuguese language telenovelas and teleseries, and extensive due diligence has given him a solid grasp of the Hispanic and Brazilian cultures, domestic and international Latino markets.

Mistreated by a step-mother, Jon ran away from home at the age of 16. Leaving the Brooklyn street gang life behind, working days, studying nights and dancing Salsa on weekends, he graduated the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in NYC, and developed the linguistic, creative and business skills, helping him become an award winning Writer's Guild of America screenwriter, Director's Guild of America UPM, and Director of the award winning film IRISH WHISKEY. He wrote and produced Demi Moore's debut film CHOICES, served as a literary agent, worked for Canal 47, ABC (NY), Fox TV (LA) as a production executive, and is Founder/CEO of TSO, global multimedia, multicultural content provider startup company with 70 projects in development, 12 advanced, 4 completed "subscription" cable TV pilot scripts & a completed feature film to be adapted as a sitcom.
