Jerry Ash, Author: Before I finished the book Hellraiser — Mother Jones: An Historical Novel, it occurred to me that we could use another like her. In my second novel, MoJo: Getting on the Right Side, Molly Jones rises from poverty and tragedy to turn the economy of her Appalachian coal town right side up.

Aided by the spirit of Mother Jones and former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich, Molly unwittingly develops a strategy that earns her a fair share of the wealth and becomes the prototype for the Company of Ones.

Hellraiser — Mother Jones: An Historical Novel

This historical novel is as significant to the present as it is to the past. As a novel, Hellraiser is a more intimate account of the iconoclastic life and times of Mary Harris Jones — known as Mother Jones to thousands — fighter for the rights of the working class and the underclass from the Civil War to the Great Depression.

A study in contrasts between the goals and objectives of capitalism and democracy, the book is a journey through some of the most dramatic episodes of American history from post Civil War insurrections and riots, to the historic Chicago Fire and the rise of big business and big labor. Most importantly, the novel brings the story of Mother Jones full circle, comparing the issues of her time to the social, political and economic troubles of the present.

MoJo: Getting on the Right Side

A young mother gets on the right side of social, political and economic injustice. Aided by the spirit of Mother Jones and former Labor Secretary Robert Reich, she raises herself and others out of poverty and restores upward mobility to the middle class. She shuns government assistance and gets business and labor on the same side.

This is a work of fiction, but the town of Welch, West Virginia, has a place in history as the victim of corporate greed for 100 years. The characters are also real: among them the grocer, the hardware guy, an “accidental” billionaire and a wealthy franchiser. Together they prove capitalism can produce wealth for the many, not just the few.

As an amateur folk singer, Molly Jones gets the stage name MoJo as her star rises. As an activist, she gets the label “rainmaker for the working class.”
