My name is Jen and I am an aspiring writer. Although writing and creating stories has always been in my blood since I was a young girl, I didn't get serious about writing until four years ago when I started to write stories and share them with my friends. It was these very friends who encouraged me to pursue my childhood dream and write more seriously with the goal of publication in mind. And so here I am today, chipping away at that dream. I have two novels in the works and have written a few short stories. My goal is to network with other authors and hopefully gain some exposure.
My writing is my voice. My writing is a series of images I see played out in my mind. The writing is greatly influenced by music, a form of escape that leads me on a creative journey. It helps me paint pictures with words. Therefore the following musicians are major influences in my writing.
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club
The Black Ryder
As with most writers, I am influenced by other writers. The following are some of my literary heroes.
John Ajvide Lindqvist <--- hero!!
Sue Monk Kidd
