He is the coauthor of three textbooks and over fifty professional journal articles.

Jones is a member of the Heritage Writers Guild, 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. But every chance he gets, he treks 450 miles to the Pacific Coast to enjoy the California sun and catch a few waves.
