From illiterate to author, a thirty year journey. Australian author, Christine Jones writes for the love of storytelling and self-growth.

I grew up with a creative father, who amazed, amused and intrigued me with stories from his past. My love of writing came from wanting to escape my problems and silently express my feelings and thoughts in what I thought a less painful way. Through family and many other writers helping and encouraging me, I finally was able to move from illiterate to author and get my works published. Gone are the 500 word sentences and I can now tell the difference between their and there, I owe that one and many other similar words to my daughter’s persistence.

I write like author Joe blogs, is that good?

What is all this talk about style of writing? Hey, it’s your baby, your creation. Are you an individual or a sheep disguised as a human? If we all had the same style of writing, everything classed as literature would be boring. I keep being told there is a formula for writing, a way of doing things, what is “so-called” expected.

Died and moved in (Humor)
5 chapters   —   updated Mar 29, 2010 04:36PM
Description: Sarah wanted to escape the city life and her wealthy family. Moving from mainland Australia, she purchased a farm in Tasmania. Persistent, yet green to rural living, the new next door neighbour has her attention and she’s out to win his heart in the most embarrassing ways. A family tragedy turns her life upside down and her little farm into spook central. Learn the secrets of the after life; you too may have many freeloaders at your address and not all were once human. Australian author Christine Jones writes for many genres from science fiction fantasy to humor. Though the characters in this book are fictitious, many of the incidents took place and by yours truly. The farm itself is real, right down to every description. I ought to know, I once owned it. CJ

Ann Keller Greetings, Christine! Just dropping by this morning to say hello and see how you are doing.

Blast! I still haven't gotten to your second Mariard book, have I? And I wanted to read, also. As a wise one once said, "So many books, so little time"!

Tommy Chris, I have not talked to you in a long time. It was great to hear from you. How's the weather "down under". I hope you and your family are all well and happy.
Have a great day mate!

message 20: by Ann

Ann Keller How kind of you to drop by, Chris! That was wonderful.

I DO have a question for you, though. I was staring at all of my books the other day and wondering whether I could ship some of them off to Shadow Forest Authors. Is that allowed? How do I go about doing that? I assume that these books do not necessarily have to be my works, but could be some of the classics, reference, sci-fi, romance, western, etc.

Let me know when you have a second. I'd love to send them some place where I know they'll do considerable good.
