About Scarlet

I want to take you on a journey…….

Who is behind Scarlet Jones?

I am Jane Clements and I have been writing as Scarlet Jones since August 2012.

Born in Cardiff, I was forever subjecting my family to my numerous compositions of short stories and poems whilst dreaming of becoming a journalist.

Life got in the way and after leaving school aged sixteen, a long uneventful career in a retail bank beckoned. Whilst raising a family I continued to write for pleasure and in private, but after the opportunity arose to take voluntary redundancy, I signed up for an evening class in Creative Writing. A new career as an administrator at a university did nothing to dampen my enthusiasm for writing.

Following a series of life changing events, I decided to combine my love of writing with adventure and I took a leap of faith and I decided to follow my dreams.  I quit my job, I gave up my apartment and I booked a flight to a different continent.
At every turn I have met some amazing people and each morning when I wake I feel blessed that I found the courage to hurtle out of my comfort zone.

Many years on, I have no intention of settling back into a ‘normal’ routine, as I travel (mainly solo) and explore the world, mentoring others along the way who also want to out the sparkle back into their lives and believe in themselves again.

Hopefully my journey will encourage you to follow your dreams.  Perhaps you are content reading about the exotic and the unusual from the comfort of your own home but we all need to live with sparkle in our lives and I can also show you how to do this without leaving home – you need to start believing in yourself again.

I hope to entertain you. I began this journey not wanting to simply backpack but I wanted to spend some time working with various volunteering projects. I wanted to get to know different communities and cultures, learn a new language and I wanted to live a nomadic lifestyle. And so far so good! Follow my blog or find me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Pinterest and learn how my journey is turning out a million times better than I could ever have hoped.

As well as writing as Scarlet Jones I work online as a freedom mentor – the aim of which is to prove that anybody can follow their dreams and add some sparkle to their life.  My on-line self-development course consists of a series of activities and challenges using the medium of travel or you can join me and be guided first hand as we explore a region together.  I write articles for a travel resource website  and I am attempting to improve my Spanish.

For my children: I have never stopped loving you and I miss you every single day. It never gets any easier, yet I have to trust that one day you will understand and you will believe in me.’
