I published my first book in 2010. It was a therapeutic process that enabled me to get all of my thoughts and feelings out after experiencing a tragic loss unlike any I had ever encountered, Yet beyond simply being a transformative experience for me, the response from those who read the book was humbling. The next step was clear, and since then I've made efforts to publish more of my stories, thoughts, and ideas to empower and encourage others.
Here are my current available titles. Enjoy!

It Just Happened The Other Day: A True Story
One day two best friends decided to write a book together. Before a word was even written they already had a title for it. Whenever Stephanie told a story she would begin by saying, "It just happened the other day," even if it had actually happened months ago. And whenever Jonas told a story he would begin by saying, "It's a true story," even when what he was saying was actually a joke. Due to unforeseen circumstances the pair never got to write their book...until now.
It Just Happened the Other Day: A True Story tells a poignant true story of love, loss, and inspired hope. If approached with an open heart this book is sure to inspire all readers.
Just Another Day
The long awaited sequel to It Just Happened the Other Day: A True Story, this book opens on just another day for Jonas Cain as he embarks on a cross country bicycle ride, from MA to L.A. Detailing his ensuing detours, this book highlights that the actual destination truly matters little when you're on an adventure.
Inspired by the time Jonas figured out the meaning of the term Pittsburgh Steelers, after being mugged on the streets of Pittsburgh, this book suggests a mathematical equation for humor:
tragedy + time = humor
This edited compilation of Jonas' all-time favorite jokes aims to offer you inspiration to find solace in the humor of your own tragedies.
The Problem Of Poverty
Poverty is a social problem affecting millions of individuals in the United States alone. The so-called war on poverty has produced no real and lasting national success due in large part to the unwillingness of the wealthy to cede power. By examining the individual and structural causes of poverty, and the political, religious, and ethical perspectives of society’s obligation to the poor, this study aims to suggest an innovative course of action to deal with this social problem. This proposed prescription will have a focused emphasis on individual responsibility implemented in pockets of localized communities that when duplicated across regions will demonstrate significant national success
Lisa Carver is a writer and performance artist. In 2015 she interviewed Jonas for her book 25 Lives. In her own words: "25 of the most unusual people I could find to talk to. A murderess, a serial killer escapee, a millionaire, a nillionaire, an underwater man, a happily untreated schizophrenic, living in Israel, walking through Sudan, severe Catholicism, a woman who is like a doll, a very old person, someone who has been in over a hundred fistfights, an international model, a tiny man with one eye and hearing aides who finally got treated like a human being only when he crossdressed, a woman who kept losing children, a man tortured in jail for a crime he was never even charged with. And more.
