Carys Jones loves nothing more than to write and create stories which ignite the reader's imagination. Based in Shropshire, England, Carys lives with her husband and her adored canine companion, Rollo.

When she's not writing, Carys likes to indulge her inner geek by watching science- fiction films or playing video games.

She lists John Green, Jodi Picoult and Virginia Andrews as her favorite authors and draws inspiration for her own work from anything and everything.

To Carys, there is no greater feeling then when you lose yourself in a great story and it is that feeling of ultimate escapism which she tries to bring to her books.

I am willing to admit that I have been woefully neglectful of my blog this past year. This wasn't an intentional decision but with edits, rewrites and the business of completing first drafts coming at me from all sides something had to give and sadly it was this blog.

This year has definitely run away with me. It feels like only days ago that I had an exciting trip down to a very cold London in... Read more of this blog post »

“People here say that there is something strange, but only about Dawn. The other girls, they are normal, polite young women. They all look alike, like tiny replicas of their Ma. But Dawn, she looks nothing like them and she acts nothing like them.”
Carys Jones, Sunkissed

“Do you even realize what you have done?’ as Dawn spoke her voice cracked slightly. She wished she could cry and release herself from some of the sadness building up inside her. But her tears never came.”
Carys Jones, Sunkissed

“Can you please just state your name and age, for the recording?’

‘Brandy White. I’m twenty four.’

‘Thank you. So on April 6th of this year, you were charged with the murder of your husband, Brandon White.’

‘Yes, sir.’

‘Records state that you yourself made the distress call to 911 at approximately 11:23pm.’ Brandy nodded.

‘Can you please answer vocally for the recording?’

‘Oh, yes, I made the call.”
Carys Jones, Not All Stars Sparkle
