Frog Jones

MisCon 31 Attending Professional

After losing his one-on-one dance-off to a stegosaurus, Frog Jones retreated into the Himalayas for training and contemplation.  He has now returned with ancient knowledge of recipes for smoothies and a not-quite-under-control addiction to feather dusters.  In the interstices of this life, he has found the time (along with his lovely bionic bodyguard/wife Esther) to write the Gift of Grace series, as well as appear in a number of anthologies.

Frog Jones writes with his wife, Esther. After a ten-year vow to never show each other a word they had written, they eventually broke down and wrote a novel together. Together, they have published the Gift of Grace series from Sky Warrior Books, as well as short stories in anthologies such as How Beer Saved the World, First Contact Caf�, and Tales from an Alien Campfire, as well as many more. The Joneses live on the Puget Sound in the State of Washington with Oxeye, who is twenty-five pounds of pure bunny. Their works can be found at, and he also appears on the Three Unwise Men podcast at

    You can argue that to be a writer is to have some form a neurosis, but in all seriousness, writers can suffer from a number of mental health issues: depression, anxiety, imposter syndrome, among others. We endure rejection after rejection, we work in isolation, which can lead to serious mental health problems. Let's discuss some of these problems and the resources to help you overcome them.
