Charles W. Jones grew up in the small town Shoshoni, WY, and he managed to break free from its grasp with his soul intact. Growing up in a small town scared him to death most of the time. It’s very dark at night – really dark. To top it off, it is full of ghosts; well, that’s what Charles thought when he was kid. Turns out it was just the constant wind blowing dirt and tumbleweeds. Two of Charles’ novels are set in Shoshoni, Dreamwalker: The Second Plain and HOME A Novel.
There isn’t a part of the horror genre Charles doesn’t like. He likes it creepy, filled with suspense, or even brutal with intense torture scenes. His favorite horror movies have always been the slasher movies; give him the gore. Clive Barker is Charles’ greatest influence, but is also inspired by Lewis Carroll, Stephen King, and Frank Beddor. Real life is a large contributor to his writing, where he finds beauty in the most unexpected places.
Music has always been a great contributor to Charles’ life, by means of not only entertainment, but personal soundtrack. When he writes, he listens to different types of music to set the mood of the scene he is writing. Eurythmics will always be at the top of his playlist, but many other bands and genres occupy his mind.
Never judge things by their appearance, even carpet bags…
I’m visited daily by people who want me to tell their story.

My #4Star Review of Wham! (Timewalker Book 1) by Carol Marrs Phipps & Tom Phipps @Car01am #RRBC
Posted on Sunday 10th December, 2017
Wham! is an exciting fantasy with Trolls and Fairies and other amazing people. I enjoyed the tempo of the book and the imagery. It has been quite a while since I’ve read fantasy, and was pleased with this dystopian take. There are several unexpected twists, including time travel through Fairy Rings. Tess is a strong-willed […]
