About Joshua Jones

Writing because I must. Once was a bass player. Once was a punk. Once was many of things. Son of a preacher man and the grandson of a Federal Court judge. A curve breaker. A fool proclaiming his folly. A writer from the edges writing for the opened minded.
I give Whispers of Hypnos away for free because it's poetry and it's meant to be shared but please support this struggling writer with the purchase of my other titles that are at bargain basement prices. Cheers!
Poems and short stories have been published by The Bitter Oleander Press, The Sylvan Echo, Pens on Fire. The Cartier Street Review published a passage of The Excess Road in October 2010.

Review by: Jonah Gibson on March 31, 2011 :
Three young men travel back in space and time to the 'post card' New England town of their upbringing. They've come to bury one of their own, a high-school chum who died in an accident that is both tragic and shrouded in the murk of things half-said and 'gossip that spreads like pollen'.

Along the way they must confront the tenuous connections of past to present and the sticky residue of a religion they have long since abandoned as they uncover the truth of their friend's fate.

In Blue Lips and Crayons Joshua Jones weaves a compelling tale of lost youth coming to grips, not just with its mortality, but its capacity for betrayal of all it once held sacred. A good read - short, evocative, satisfying.
