Darinda Jones Books

Darynda Jones American writer, won the 2009 Golden Heart Award for Best Paranormal Novel for her book The First Grave on the Right. But even before that, Darinda does not remember such a time that she did not write. At the age of five, grabbing a notebook and a pencil, Darinda scratched some nonsense on the sheet, and then forced her mother to read her creation aloud. Thank God that my mother agreed to participate in this. Darinda later wrote plays for the neighbour`s children, wrote stories for her brother playing with cars, and fell in love with Captain Kirk. At the age of seven, her wild imagination created fantastic stories with the participation of Barbie and Ken, the plot of which, however, could not have been retelled in a decent company. During her school years, she was repeatedly summoned to the director for what she dreamed of during lessons, but she still managed to go to high school and by that time almost finished her first work. Sitting for hours in a cafe, Darinda wrote a post-apocalyptic story about a group of teenagers, strikingly reminiscent of musicians from Van Halen, who are trying to escape in the tunnels of a huge government building after all life on the Earth`s surface was destroyed during World War III. Life was good. It was good writing. And then she graduated, and the real world came crashing down on her. She had to sacrifice her dreams for her livelihood and home, Darinda married a local rock artist and gave birth to two children, the eldest of whom was born deaf. When the child was five, she took the boys and moved to Albuquerque to enroll in a program for the deaf and hard of hearing. My father remained in business, and for the next seven long years, they took turns driving back and forth on weekends to see each other. In Albuquerque, Darinda decided to take life with optimism and go to college while she still had enough brains to benefit from it. After receiving an honors degree in sign language from the University of New Mexico, she returned to her hometown and took up real work. Even for a few – mostly Darinda taught at a local college and also translated. Based on her own experience, she would not want anyone to have more than three jobs at the same time. Gradually, the desire to write was revived in Darinda. Unable to fight him any longer, she seriously took up literature in 2002 with a single goal in mind: a contract with a publishing house. Unfortunately, this did not work out. However, patience and work will grind everything, and after writing three novels, she won “Golden Heart”, signed a contract with an excellent agent and signed a contract for three books. The first book in the Charlie Davidson series, The First Grave on the Right, was released in hardcover in February 2011. The author hopes you enjoy reading it as much as she enjoyed writing. The book became popular. A few months later it was published in Slovakia, France, Russia, Germany, Thailand, Poland, Taiwan, and the rights to publish the second and third novels have already been bought by many foreign publishers. So Corpus also bought the rights to publish her second novel about the adventures of Charlie Davidson, who knows how to communicate with ghosts. Darinda Jones lives in Wizarding Land, also known as New Mexico, with her husband, with whom she has been together for over 25 years, and two beautiful sons, known as the Mighty Jones. Official site: www.daryndajones.com Blog: www.darynda.com/index.php/category/blog
