Prior to devoting himself full-time to writing, Jones worked in public accounting and higher education, where he taught accounting, computer information systems, and business writing. He is the coauthor of three textbooks and over fifty professional journal articles. Other publishing credits include general interest newspaper and magazine articles, poetry, creative non-fiction, and children’s fiction. His latest publication, appearing in Pine Hills Review, is "Rx for COVID-19 Grief Relief."
Jones is a member of the Heritage Writers Guild chapter of the League of Utah Writers, and an affiliate member of the Mystery Writers of America. To be close to his family, he makes his home in the southwestern desert. Although I now make my home in the southwestern desert rather than my native California, every chance I get, I trek the 450 miles to the Pacific Coast to get in a little “water therapy” and catch a few waves.
