Charles W. Jones grew up in a town of 500 people–Shoshoni, WY. It’s the Center of the Universe, or so he thought growing up since it is in the exact center of the state. There were quite a few “characters” in his hometown, and it was one of those places that everyone knows your business. The thing that stuck with him the most was, how dark it was at night. Charles was a jumpy kid at night. Anything that moved in the dark, any sound made his heart pound in his chest. Thunder had the same effect. His first book, The Second Plain, was extremely influenced by his hometown. Most of it is actually set there. Darkness is a deep influence for him and has Shoshoni to thank for it.
