About Darlene Jones

Darlene Jones is a retired educator and writer. A graduate of the University of Alberta she was a teacher, principal, second language consultant, and staffing officer with Edmonton Public schools. Her multiple roles included second language curriculum development for secondary students. After retiring she continued to provide educational workshops for teachers in the province of Alberta.

Her career began as a volunteer with Canadian University Services Overseas. She taught school in Mali and it was the plight of the Malians that inspired her to write her first novel—science fiction—described by readers as a “think piece.”

She continues to write fiction that incorporates topics such as world affairs, aging, and Alzheimer’s, with the added mix of adventure, romance and humor.

Review by: Anneli Purchase on April 9, 2014 :
Because the cultures from Mali to Mexico and points in between are in many ways different from ours, it is a treat to gain insights about them from an author who has been there. Most of the stories are told with a touch of humour, while the few that are more serious will leave you thinking about them long after you put the book down.
This is the perfect book for reading in bed or when you can take a break. Mali to Mexico provides short, yet highly entertaining snippets of life and experiences in these countries. Read one or two and save the next short story for another time. Be warned though: Like a box of chocolates, you’ll be wanting to pick it up again soon to savour another one.
