Jayne and Alicia’s brilliant debut novel, Capitol Hell, is about the dysfunctional behind the scenes happenings on Capitol Hill. This off-beat, funny novel captures and shares what it is like to be a young staffer working on The Hill.
“Everybody needs a little humor during election season,” Jones said.
Jayne and Alicia began their political careers by working as staffers on former Senator Norm Coleman’s 2002 Senate campaign in his St. Paul, MN and Washington, D.C. offices. The two stuck together through thick and thin while working with Coleman during his time as a U.S. Senator from 2002 to 2009. Despite leaving The Hill, they remained close friends and joined forces to write Capitol Hell.
Jayne Jones, a graduate of William Mitchell College of Law, left Capitol Hill to work for the Minnesota House of Representatives, where she was the Executive Assistant to the Speaker of the House. Her favorite adventure is teaching others about the legislative process and how to draft legislation in her capacity as a political science professor at Concordia University. Jones is also in the process of starting a summer camp for teenagers interested in public policy.
Alicia Long, a South Dakota native and graduate of the University of St. Thomas School of Law, also worked for United States Senator John Thune (SD) as well as former United States Senator George Allen (VA). After graduating from law school, she obtained employment as a Presidential Management Fellow in the Department of Justice. In that capacity, she worked as a Special Assistant U.S. Attorney in the United States Attorney's Office in the District of Columbia. Currently she is an attorney working in Washington D.C.
