SYNOPSIS

On January 30, 2020 Constance G. Jones will release her memoir Emerging Butterfly detailing her childhood growing up in San Diego as one of 9 children battling the three demons in her household: alcohol, abuse, and absence. She survives the heartbreak of infertility, depression, and bad relationships to become an influential philanthropist, advocate and loving wife.

Survive the darkness of the cocoon and you will emerge into the light of day.

. . .

Raised in San Diego in the 1980s, Constance was born to be a Californian dreamer. The fourth of nine children in a poor, dysfunctional family, she grew up with three demons in her household: alcohol, abuse, and absence. She buried her dreams in the dark cocoon of her childhood. As a teenager, an accident upended her world and cursed her with epilepsy for the rest of her life.

Entering adulthood, Constance hoped she’d left the worst behind her. Instead, toxic relationships, misguided spiritual teachings, and close calls with death nearly broke her.
Constance discovered curses can hide blessings in their inner layers. Instead of breaking, she chose to break free, realizing her heart could sprout wings to take her in the direction of her wildest dreams…

In a mesmerizing memoir that is by turns heartbreaking and heartwarming, writer and philanthropist Constance Grays Jones retraces her precarious journey towards truth, love, community, and self-discovery. Tackling issues of epilepsy, depression, infertility, and family drama with refreshing sass, humor, and compassion, she reminds us that we are products of our past but also the creators of our purpose. Her inspiring story is a wakeup call for the soul, showcasing the tenacity of the human spirit, the pockets of sunlight in the darkest corners, and the transformational power of belief and love.

A Bronx Boy’s Tale details the life of the author as he witnessed the major historical events on the 1960’s and 1970’s. Although it was a time of social upheaval and strife, Jimmy’s family, friends and the Beautiful Bronx all made the experience glorious.
It is a lesson to us in modern times who despair about the state of things. Family, friends, and having a strong community in which to thrive can supersede any perceived threat from a world thought to be mad.
