I choose to use ‘J.M.’ because it gives me just enough space from my writing. I love writing and feel that it’s one of the only ways to manage my thoughts, but I don’t want to only be known for my writing.
Most of my time is spent thinking and it is both a blessing and a curse. It took me almost three years to write my first book, Breathless, and just having the storyline out of my brain was an amazing feeling, because it left me room to think about something else for a change.
My only goal with writing is to make someone feel what I have felt reading different books over the years. I’ve laughed, cried, and gasped, and that’s what I want someone else to do. I want people to read one of my books and be glad that they did. If i’ve done that, then I consider myself to have accomplished something.
