KJonesAbout Karen A. Jones
Karen Jones enjoys writing children’s books, oil painting, gardening, and volunteering at a local senior center. After earning a Standard Teaching Credential from Southern California College (now Vanguard University), she taught elementary and junior high students in California. To help children learn easier, she wrote and illustrated six sets of self-teaching educational booklets called the Light Pole Books. These include a Beginning Reading, Math Facts, English, Bible, History/Geography, and Science series—available through jewelpublishing.com. She wrote and illustrated “Andrew in Miss Plum’s Class,” about a third grader who learns to show kindness. Her book, “Twins’ Double Victory, A Story of Forgiveness,” is a fictional story based on the experiences of her mother and twin sister who didn’t lose hope while living in three children’s homes during part of the Great Depression—available through Certa Publishing.

Karen was inspired to write “Lighthouse Surprise,” a fictional story for preteens, after observing children using their electronic devices in public places instead of communicating and interacting with each other. The story shows a glimpse of what life was like back when the author was growing up in the 1950s and ‘60s—a time when children developed their communication skills and imagination while having fun playing together.

Part of the proceeds from the book sales will go to two children’s homes in Arkansas.
