Before college, Jones worked as an actor with the local Community Theater, and as an extra/stand-in for award winning feature films, “Places In The Heart” & “Born On The Fourth Of July.” As a freelance writer/novelist, Jones have written several college introductory letters, other contract writing projects, newspaper articles, and three published novels. Literary portfolio also includes a screenplay adaptation of my original fiction novel, “Searching For Eden.”
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I was born in Waxahachie, Texas, but I have also lived in various Texas cities and most often in and out of Dallas. As an only child, my influences came from reading at an early age, the various types of people I have met throughout my life, and having some of the best family and teachers to guide me along my way.
When did you first start writing?
I started writing in high school, mostly in a journal full of teenage angst and all the issues we all had to face. Then in my sophomore year I was lucky enough to take a journalism class which was the true beginning of my desire to become a writer.
