Georgia native Jadie Jones first began working for a horse farm at twelve years old, her love of horses matched only by her love of books. Her grandfather, nicknamed Casey Jones at a young age by local law enforcement for his habit of hopping trains, would sit with Jadie in an old blue chair and spin tales of the Choctaw nation and a girl who ran wild with feral horses. These stories would stay fresh in Jadie’s mind long into adulthood.
Jadie went on to acquire a B.A. in equine business management, and worked for competitive horse farms along the east coast. The need to spin tales of her own followed wherever she went. She and her family now live on a small horse farm in Oregon’s Rogue River Valley, where she owns and operates a rehabilitation and training program for horses. When she's not working on a writing project, she is either in the saddle or exploring the great outdoors with her three children.
The first two titles from her fantasy series – The Hightower Trilogy - have ranked on Amazon’s genre best-selling lists. The first book, “WILDWOOD,” was named a top-5 finalist for the Frank Yerby Award for fiction, and was the winner of the Equus Film Festival’s Best Equine Fiction award. The third and final installment of the Hightower Trilogy and its companion prequel novella will release in April, 2019.
