Jones, who is also a copyright attorney, is the author of internationally acclaimed novel How the One-Armed Sister Sweeps Her House. The novel was published by five major publishing houses, translated into German and French, shortlisted for the 2021 Women’s Prize for Fiction (UK) and nominated for the OCM BOCAS Prize.
