MARCIA THORNTON JONES enjoys reading more than anything else.  As a teacher, her favorite part of the school day was sharing books with her students.  It was that love of reading that drew her to writing. She wanted to write the same kinds of stories that she and her students enjoyed reading. One afternoon she mentioned to the school librarian that she’d always had an interest in writing. The librarian, Debbie Dadey, shared a common desire to write stories that would encourage reading skills while promoting a true joy of reading.  The next afternoon, Marcia and Debbie met while their students were at lunch and began writing. That story, Vampires Don’t Wear Polka Dots, became the first book in their bestselling series, The Adventures of the Bailey School Kids. 
Marcia lives in Lexington, Kentucky with her husband, Stephen, and their two cats.
