My passion for writing began as an angst-ridden teen penning a storm of emotions into sometimes eloquent but mostly sappy poetry about un-requited love.
While I still dabble with the occasional poetic verse, I focus most of my creative energy on perfecting my craft and writing science fiction fantasy and paranormal romance featuring diverse characters and edgy heroines who save themselves. You’ll meet psychic aliens, murderous disembodied spirits, AI assassins, human clones, sentient space goo and mythological beings in my world, but #NoDamsels.
A hopeless romantic at heart, my alter ego found her way to a successful career in the wedding and events industry. Job perks include an endless supply of cake, champagne, and a compelling cast of IRL characters.
When I’m not at work, attending a writing workshop, or holed up in my writing attic, you can find in the studio throwing paint at a canvas, cooking for perpetually ravenous teenagers, or snuggling on the couch with my leading man and our two rescue poodles for a deep dive Netflix binge.
My pen name J.Ember is my REAL first initial and middle name.
