Jeremy L.C. Jones
PSEUDONYM: Molly's Dad
Role— Co-author of "Geist Anthropic 1:4"
Past Achievements— Over the last twenty years, wrote for a variety of newspapers, magazines, and websites as a freelance writer, editor, and teacher living in South Carolina; has contributed regularly to BookLifeNow.com, Clarkesworld Magazine, and Kobold Quarterly (online and print); in addition to writing, has taught in a wide variety of venues, including elementary special education, high school English, middle school Montessori, college writing and literature, and senior citizen enrichment courses; and co-created two creative writing programs, Living Words and Shared Worlds, the latter with World Fantasy Award-winning novelist Jeff VanderMeer in 2006. (Living Words provides free community creative writing workshops, especially for people with Alzheimer's or other forms of dementia, while Shared Worlds is a creative writing and world-building summer program for high school students.)
Future Achievements— Will conduct dozens of author interviews for both Clarkesworld Magazine and Booklifenow.com; will appreciate you bookmarking those sites and stopping by often; with frequent co-writer Christopher Dinkins, has signed the NDA and will work, work, work; will pitch a SECRET PROJECT with Jeff VanderMeer (shhh, it's a secret!); will—will—learn to weave in and out of the time-space continuum (the key ingredients for time-weaving are peanut butter, coffee, and the Grateful Dead in equal measure); will finish writing an Arthurian fantasy, a sprawling epic inspired by the music of Woody Guthrie, and a memoir of his time in Alaska.
Back Story— Jones grew up on boarding school campuses in New York and Florida. He entered the family business while still young. There was no paddling, spanking, or goat sacrificing involved. He is the most recent incarnation of a long line of teacher/writers. He is married to a professor/writer/musician who is the daughter of professor/musicians. His own daughter teaches him every day. Every. Single. Day. In fact, she doesn't just teach him, she inspires him with her boundless imagination and delightful sense of humor.
Final Notes— There's a hole in Jones' mind where the stories grow.
