Graduating high school is a big accomplishment but one joplin high student, can also add "Published autho" to her resume.

A writer since 3rd grade, Makenzie Mccroskey Jones works on her next book in a series on her laptop computer.. she self published her first book called "Forsaken, Fall of Menevilen" on the advice of experts.

Jones says being edited and her work criticized isn't easy but writing is a passion and her story just seemed to grow.

"I was kind of intrigued by the notion I could control my own universe and create my own characters based on whatever I wanted it to be based on I was always a story teller. But when I started writing books then it just took off it became I wrote my first book in 5th grade and it ended up being a 300 page novel." she says.

Jones says she saved money by having a friend create the cover, and she filed for a copyright herself online.

She plans to market and sign copies of her book at this months third thursday.

The book is available on Amazon.com for paperback purchase or kindle version.
