Aphrodite Jones is a best-selling true crime author whose expertise in the courtroom, as a public speaker, on radio and in television, is world-renowned.
Aphrodite Jones is an award-winning American crime reporter and author who writes about murder. Her knack for detail allows her to dissect bizarre murder cases and bring readers into the heart of darkness. In recent years, the author has taken her career to TV as the executive producer and TV host of the ID series, True Crime with Aphrodite Jones, which airs worldwide on Investigation Discovery. TCAJ uncovers the secrets about riveting high-profile cases across America. The series follows Jones, who’s written a string of best-selling true crime books, as she unravels new mysteries lurking behind cases that shocked America: O.J. Simpson, Casey Anthony, Scott Peterson, Jon Benet Ramsey, Phil Spector, and the list goes on.
Before landing the hosting position with Discovery Channel's crime network, Jones hosted a show called The Justice Hunters for USA Network, and was a crime reporter for FOX News, covering the trials of Scott Peterson, Michael Jackson, and Dennis Rader (aka the BTK Killer) for The O'Reilly Factor.
When Jones wrote her first book, The FBI Killer, it was quickly turned into an ABC movie-of-the-week, Betrayed by Love, starring Patricia Arquette and Steven Weber. Not long afterward, Jones landed the exclusive rights to a teen crime drama she chronicled in her book Cruel Sacrifice, which hit the top of the New York Times list and stayed there for over three months. Overnight, Jones was considered a veteran crime writer, and her third book, All He Wanted, was optioned as a major motion picture by Diane Keaton with Drew Barrymore attached. The original film was never made, but Jones' book was later transformed into the Oscar-winning film Boys Don't Cry which launched the career of then-unknown Hilary Swank. Her book A Perfect Husband was made into the Lifetime Movie, The Staircase Murders, starring Treat Williams.
Over the years, Jones has written eight best-selling true crime books and has appeared as a crime expert on The Today Show, NBC Dateline, CBS Early Morning, Dr. Oz, Entertainment Tonight, Inside Edition, The O'Reilly Factor, FOX Report, Nancy Grace, The Forensic Files, E! News, CNN Newsstand, America's Most Wanted, The New Detectives, Forensic Files, Court TV Trial Story, and American Justice.
Aphrodite Jones will be a keynote speaker at the first-ever CrimeCon event being held in Indianapolis in June of 2017.
