Daniel Bryan Jones


I am Daniel Bryan Jones 57 years old.

I was born in west Texas and have lived in Southern California most of my life. I am married with one grown daughter and three beautiful grandchildren. I have worked for myself since I married in 1975. I owned and operated a residential roofing company for the first twenty-five years. I retired from roofing in 1989 and spent the next ten years traveling the world's mission fields. When I finished my last mission trip to West Africa I went into the real estate business where I became successful in selling high end properties in southern California.

I graduated high school in 1974 and have been self-taught and am a self-made man through my many business projects over the last thirty five years.

I suffered a massive stroke in 2006 that was life changing. After years of recovery I started writing. I have recently been writing the amazing story of my time in the mission field. I am in the process of writing a six book series on stroke awareness, prevention and recovery. I am also writing a training and exercise manual for post stroke survivors and a guide to care giving for care givers.Lastly I have an autobiography on my life story half written up to 1999.

Since my stroke I have been asked to speak at many of the South land Colleges and lecture on the effects of stroke and the awareness, prevention and recovery of stroke. I volunteer every Monday for a stroke group that lends support to those who suffer from "aphasia", a condition caused by strokes that renders it victims unable to communicate. I had recently spoke as the key note speaker at the 2012 Survivor's Symposium, for the National
Institute for Speaking and Language Association.

As of 2013I am now the Stroke Ambassador for the Inland Empire in Southern California for the American heart/stroke assn.

Smashwords book reviews by Daniel Bryan Jones

  • The Diary of a Canadian Nobody on Feb. 10, 2017

    The Diary of a Canadian Nobody is a noteworthy work of modern literature.Notwithstanding the foregoing, this exceptional book is easy to read and recommend for most ages. i would have never have dreamed that being an implicit voyeur to another man's everyday existence could be so enthralling. i started this amazing book yesterday afternoon around 500p.m and finished it this morning at 6:00a.m. what a ride!! The subject matter and the flow of the story line is capricious and ever-changing in a comfortable mercurial way. i found the Lakelady's family dynamics surprisingly similar to my own, though my children are grown and my wife and i have both sowed our prospective oats. the protagonist, Arthur Lakelady in Paul Jame's excellent comedy/satire is believable and is doomed to trials and consternation's. i relate all to well what it,s like to watch the flower of youth fade to grey. if you give a myddle aged guy too much money,time or power he will get into travail every time. i had my own version of Arthur's Lydia after i hit it big in the real estate game. in closing i would to congratulate Mr,James on this singular work.and moreover thank him for a job well done. i highly recommend this entertaining, uplifting read by James Paul,James Author, Writer Public Speaker: Daniel Bryan Jones:
