M Jones


M Jones has been published in many venues, both online and in print, and made her first foray into the experimental medium of web serials with 314 Crescent Manor.

The fidgety dead have been known to rise and walk about, especially in M Jones's novel Frankie And Formaldehyde, available at Smashwords.

Experimental horror that blends science fiction, suspense, drama and a good scare are the tools of M Jones's trade.

That sound heard in the upper floors of a semi-detached home are the scrapings of poisoned knife tips on an old Olympia typewriter. The letters hit the blank page like clacking teeth.

Never read over her shoulder.


"A great story premise, a great cast of quirky characters, and fantastic dialogue." - Zoe E Whitten, author of Peter the Wolf

"A fantastic, fun, and philosophical read." - Nancy Brauer, author of Strange Little Band

  • Zombie Nights on June 03, 2010

    Cool book on the zombie POV with engaging characters and an interesting, quiet take on the zombie concept. The ending felt rushed, however, and I would like to know how things got on with Ray and Cookie and the others. Maybe a sequel?
  • Peculiar, MO on June 16, 2010

    Really enjoying this book. A good, tense read with great characters and a beautifully described eerie setting. Definitely an author to watch.
