Reading and writing have been J.J.’s passion her whole life. Starting out with being the poet, everyone came to in high school to get that “perfect” poem for his or her boyfriend/girlfriend. She spent her weekends locked away in her room, curled up on her bed, writing short stories for only a selected few readers. She has been happily married for 32 years to her trucker husband. She is a mother of three, grandmother of four; a lover of dogs, cats, birds, and fish. J.J. started to pen historical romance as a hobby when her youngest child was a year old. She got serious about her writing career joining Romance Writers of America and Crossroads Romance Writers of America. She penned her first paranormal romance, Into the Darkness, in 25 days, taking herself beyond her comfort zone and just giving the characters free reign of their story. She is published in ebook, paperback, and audio.
