Don Jones is a bestselling author, and highly reviewed creator of unique and fantastic new worlds.
Don has been writing since 2000, although for the first almost-two-decades he stuck with technology books. You know, those big, thick ones that seem to be sold by the pound. That included bestsellers like Learn Windows PowerShell in a Month of Lunches, Managing Windows with VBScript and WMI, and The Windows Server 2003 Delta Guide. In 2018 or so, Don’s career turned away from technology and his writing turned toward fiction.
Early works—and very much representative of the learning curve involved—include A History of the Galactic War, Alabaster, and Power Wave (which you can get for free by signing up for Don’s newsletter).
Today, Don divides his time between a condo in Downtown Las Vegas (yes, people live here) and a cabin in Southern Utah. He writes almost every day, producing standalone books like The Never: A Tale of Peter and the Fae and well-received series like stories of witchkind, the Clara Thorn novels, and the Endless Sky series. When he’s not writing, Don is probably playing with his Goldendoodle, Corentin.
” …Jones has created something new, compelling, beautifully written, and somewhat reminiscent of Ursula Le Guin’s A Wizard of Earthsea (1968)…An engrossing, well-written, and original story; readers will be eager for the next installment. “
– Kirkus Reviews
” Readers looking for spirited children’s stories of adventure should look elsewhere, but readers interested in mythology will find much to enjoy in this elegiac tale about attempting to protect one’s way of life amid change and destruction. “
– Publisher’s Weekly
” a wonderfully compelling tale of magic, witches, and learning your own identity, and one which will be sure to capture the hearts and minds of fantasy readers everywhere. “
– K. C. Finn, Reader’s Favorite
” His command of prose is a wonderful thing in which to linger with much on which to reflect should the reader choose. “
” Vibrating with the ancient, mystical images known as runes and awash in complex moral questions… Don Jones gives readers much to ponder as it thoroughly enchants. “
