DL Jones was born in Brooklyn NY, grew up in Newport News VA and has spent the last 8 years in Charlotte NC. He has served time in the US Army and works as an IT Professional. His first love has always been tech, well computers and the web specifically, which has led to a lot of writing. He has had several websites/blogs and podcast over the years.
He started writing his first novel in 1998. There was no such thing as self-publishing as it is today. He had no end game, it was a hobby. He wrote on it for several years until a mishap caused him to lose the whole thing. It was a whole glass of soda and laptop issue, with no backups. Currently he has 4 novels in the works and the 3 HYPO shorts. 2 of his novels are fiction with HYPO being sci-fi, and his upcoming novel, Billette Hall, being a Horror/Thriller based in American slavery times. A third novel in the works, I Used to be FAT, is non-fiction, based on his life before and after 150lb weight loss. The last novel in the works is also non-fiction.
