J. Michael Jones grew up in the Appalachian Mountains of NE Tennessee. He became interested in the medical professions as he neared graduation from East Tennessee State University, with the hopes helping with the needs of the suffering within the developing world. He soon transitioned from medical school for becoming a  physician, to  a medical school for becoming a PA, in order to expedite his dream of serving the most underserved.

He is married to Denise and has five grown children.  They reside on a quiet lake in Anacortes, Washington. He has lived and worked in Cyprus, Egypt, Pakistan, Oman, and UAE. Most of his career has been in neurology, specifically Headache Medicine, where he found a niche here in the USA, where patients were neglected as almost as much as those in war-torn, developing countries.

Michael has been interested n writing since middle school. He has published over thirty articles for national and international magazines. He has written five books, ranging from Christian philosophy to headache management. The Waters of Bimini, is is first novel.
