About the Author

Author Carla Jones is a fresh voice at Echelon Press Publishing. Her non-fiction e-book, Death by Rheumatoid Arthritis, chronicles her mother’s medical and personal experience, fighting the disease.  After many years living with RA, her mother manifested many unusual physical symptoms. Only one specialist was able to correctly diagnose her with spinal cord syndrome, due to her eroded cervical spine. When the diagnosis was revealed, corrective surgery was not a survivable option.

The author’s mission is to bring awareness to the fact that one can die from complications, due to rheumatoid arthritis. Her story lists signs and symptoms of an unstable spinal column, due to the advancement of the disease.

The author works as a freelance writer and has worked in various departments, for The Morning Call Newspaper, in Allentown, Pennsylvania.  She has written for the Arts and Entertainment Department, Neighbors Magazine and for Lehigh Valley Woman’s Magazine. She has also written for Pennsylvania’s, NeighborCare Pharmacy, presently known as Omnicare Pharmacy.   The author resides in Southeastern Pennsylvania.  She’s actively involved in her church and volunteers as a Media Specialist for, “Operation Christmas Child”.  The international program spearheaded by the world relief agency, Samaritan’s Purse.

A percentage of the proceeds from, Death by Rheumatoid Arthritis will be donated to The Arthritis Foundation.
