Introducing Verona Jones

Education

My name is Verona Jones, and up until recently I have written mostly poetry. I've been busy applying the skills and lessons  I've obtained  from school to hone my writing skills.


I've completed a BA in English with a history minor and an MA in Creative Writing - Emphasis on Fiction writing.

Verona's Writing Roots

I've written poetry for years, but it wasn't until later in my  life while attending the Santa Fe University of Art and Design  I  started writing fiction.  It was while I was  interning  with an online magazine called the Santa Fe Literary News that my love for writing really sparked.  Slowly gaining confidence in my writing abilities I'm pursuing my dreams of being a writer.

Verona's Literary Influence

 I am a die hard Stephen King and Dean Koontz fan, but I also loves Jennifer Ashley, Sherrilyn Kenyon, and Keri Arthur. Not even horror related, but I also loves Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series.


I love to write horror stories with paranormal influences interwoven with myth and legends. I especially like to write  stories where the bad guy gets their just rewards in the end.  As they say, Karma is a bitch.
