J. Jones

J. B. Jones grew up in the 50s in a small Ohio town near Grand Lake St.Marys and the Miami and Erie Canal. Her home was a large white house on Main Street. Her father was a physician and surgeon whose office was a part of their home. A very curious child, Jones grew up with a love of local history, a fascination of the Miami and Erie Canal, and surrounded by her father's patients. If she didn't know everyone in town, they certainly knew her. Jones now lives in a very large metro area and is a recent grandmother, but her roots have stayed with her. She combined her love of history, mystery, and canal lore with her knowledge of small town characters of the 50s. The result is Cousin Feely, the 2002 EPPIE Winner for Best Mainstream Novel. Using the author name of Janice Jones, she is also the author of Secrets of a Summer Spy, a young adult novel. Secrets is about a trio of friends in the throes of the passage to adulthood. It is set on an island, reminiscent of Jones' childhood summer home on Grand Lake (which was just two miles from her winter home in the middle of town!).

While Jones loves writing fiction when she can, her "day job" is a freelance writer of elementary school books. She writes and edits Language Arts, Social Studies, Science, and sometimes even Math! Other interests are music and trips to the gym to get that blood flowing after long hours at the computer. She has become adept at editing manuscripts while riding an exercycle.
