Bill Jones, Jr. was born in Washington, D.C., moving to Hampton, Virginia at age 4. By age 12, Bill could be found bicycling around the streets of downtown Hampton, Virginia, camera in hand. Already an avid Science Fiction and Fantasy buff, at age ten, he was exposed to the poetry of Nikki Giovanni and the fiction of Jack London and Madeleine L'Engle. The writing bug was born.
In 2007, Bill wrote a short story that would later become the first two chapters of his Fantasy Fiction / Adventure series, The Stream. He completed Book 1, Discovery, in December 2009, and then immediately began work on its sequel, Awakening.
Now, with the completion of the series, Bill is excited about the publication of his debut novel, The Stream: Discovery. Book 2, Awakening, is due to be published in early 2012, with the third book of the trilogy, Emprise, due in early 2013. Bill is also planning a release of his first Science Fiction adventure, Hard as Roxx.
