    • Welcome to my site! I'm Kathleen Jones, author of "Love Is the Punch Line," a lighthearted, quirky romantic novel set in the world of stand-up comedy. The novel--my first-- will be published by Moonshine Cove in April 2018.

      I’m a refugee from the corporate world, a lover of books, dogs, and 1940’s/1950’s vintage clothing (not necessarily in that order!), a wife and a mom . . . and, oh yeah, a novelist!

      For thirty (long) years, I toughed it out in the corporate world, chiefly as an editor for various Canadian book publishers. Sometimes, I had the opportunity to do work I enjoyed, but too often, I didn’t. Towards the end of my career, the type of work that interested and challenged me began to slip away, and I became less and less happy.

      Then one day, I realized something: creative, out-of-the box thinkers like me don’t belong in the corporate world, and if I wanted “meaningful” work, I’d have to create it for myself.

      That was when I decided to pursue the only work that I’d ever really wanted to do since I was a child: the work of a novelist!

      Thanks for visiting me, and please keep in touch:

      HE COURTED HER WITH PUNCH LINES Kathleen Jones’ debut novel, Love Is the Punch Line, available April 7 from Moonshine Cove Middle-aged stand-up comedian Josh Steinberg, formerly the star of his own popular TV series, finds himself struggling to keep his career alive, playing seedier and seedier clubs. Plump, balding, and plain-looking, he has never had much luck with women. That is, until Josh meets Holly Brannigan while performing his stand-up act in a comedy club. Holly, an attractive, intelligent, and divorced 50-year-old businesswoman, becomes instantly smitten with Josh and even finds his unconventional looks wildly sexy. The lonely and vulnerable Josh soon falls in love with Holly, even though she’s not the statuesque type he usually goes for. But Josh, terrified of being hurt and discarded by yet another woman, hides his true feelings for Holly by making fun of her in his stand-up act. And Holly, taking Josh’s words to heart, starts to wonder if she means anything to him at all. Kathleen Jones’ first novel, Love Is the Punch Line, a midlife comic romance set in the world of stand-up comedy, will be published in April 2018 by Moonshine Cove Publishing.
