Author, Screenwriter, Songwriter, Musician, Producer

Born in Chicago, Mike grew up on the cold, hard, urban streets. Mike A. Jones picked up a guitar in his early teens and taught himself to play. A 35 year veteran of the music industry, Mike has toured nationally many times with various bands that he formed around his vast original song collection.

Mike's original songwriting encompasses such musical genres as, rock, blues, country, southern rock, jazz, and jazz-rock fusion, and culminates in a very distinctive "Americana" style, reflecting Mike's overall musical expression.

Mike on Harley

In the mid 1980's Mike attended Chicago State University, and became certified in television production. In '91 Mike moved to Arizona and bought a Harley, took his beloved 12-string acoustic guitar, and threw them both in a blender and re-invented himself. Mike found a niche writing songs of adventure and the open road. This put Mike back on the touring circuit playing his motorcycle riding songs for tens of thousands of people at motorcycle rallies all around the country. Mike's songs were considered so unique and original that he was invited to play many private events for the Harley-Davidson Motor Company by company executives, which were attended by such famous celebrities as Jay Leno, Steven Tyler, Peter Fonda, and many more.

Mike wrote the Harley-Davidson 100-year anniversary song "Yesterday 1903" and the hall of fame induction song for Willie G. Davidson, executive and family member of the original founders of Harley-Davidson. This all led Mike to the writing of one of his first motion picture screenplays "Live To Ride", which has been produced into a feature length movie released in 2011 as "Born To Ride." Side by side with his screenwriting partner and close friend Rob Vozza from whom Mike learned to write movies, Mike has gone on to write multiple screenplays and movie treatments. He is now C.E.O. of his own film company, Wolf On The Moon Productions, which already owns several valuable intellectual properties.

Because Hollywood can be a difficult and ruthless place, a writer's creative work can very easily be subjected to plagiarism or outright piracy. For this reason, Mike became very protective of his work. He developed a large body of screenplays, treatments, teleplays, and music, and decided not to shop his work at every door in Hollywood. Instead, he decided to assemble the right combination of trustworthy personnel, and qualified funders to produce these great films.

The protection of the funder's investment and the integrity of the creative material, is Mike's highest priority.
