Jones Talmadge is an author of science fiction and young adult action-adventure stories.
I write short stories, novels, motivational speeches, and scripts for stage and screen. For me, the art of storytelling started on the stage as a performer and improvisor. Over time, stories started to build up in my dreams until I could no longer hold back the flood. I started writing every day, and the stories poured out of me onto the page. I started writing for stage and screen first, creating theater pieces with Not Man Apart, including an adaption of John Milton: Paradise Lost – Reclaiming Destiny, premiering in 2017. My wife and I also started a YouTube Channel of dance-story films that I write and direct: MakeMoreBeauty.com. Look below for current published works and projects on the way!
