Screenwriting is an opportunity for me to live out dream of making movies.
JK Jones has been a writer his entire life. For 26 years, he worked at a newspaper on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
"A creative, interesting gentleman who writes real-life stories and dialogue," said former Stillman College Associate Professor of Journalism Stephen Flanigan Jackson.
Jones has written 41 E-books under a pen name and had a successful five-year run of best-selling E-books that started in 2009.
His short screenplay, Instant Replay, was accepted by the Cannes Latitude Film Festival.
Jones' debut novel, Picking Cotton, is now an adapted screenplay, False Start.
False Start has won several awards at different Film Festivals across the world.
Jones’ passion for writing began at Holt High School in 1986. He served as Sports Editor of the Purple Reign, the school's newspaper until graduating in 1988. It opened the door to a successful sports writing career. During Jones’ last two years at Holt High, he was named the prestigious Who’s Who Among American High School Students.
At Stillman College, Jones’ writing continued to blossom. He was Sports Editor of the Tigers' Paw from 1989 to 1991 and Editor-in-chief in 1991 until graduating a year later. Jones’ academic excellence continued at Stillman and also took Magazine Journalism classes at the University of Alabama.
His last two years were spent on the Dean’s List and finished with a 3.1 Grade Point Average. In 2016, Jones received a Distinguished Sportsman Award from the Gulfport (Miss.) Sports Hall of Fame. The city honored Jones for his outstanding contribution and well-written sports stories on athletes.
Born in Tuscaloosa, Alabama on October 18, 1969, Jones currently lives in Selma, Alabama, has an adult daughter and granddaughter.
