About the Author

Oxford, Englandme was just her first stop of many places to grow up.  She’s taken up residence in no less than three countries, six US States, and sixteen different cities. J.S. currently reside in North Carolina.

J.S. has been writing since she was a teenager. “I will always remember my first typewriter. An old manual mint green from the 50’s that I got at a consignment shop for about $20. It is well worth more than that now, but to me it is priceless. All my dreams and ideas typed out in perfect script letters.”

She loves reading of course.  Devouring books from authors such as Stephen King, Anne Rice, Edgar Allen Poe, R.L. Stine (Fear Street, not Goosebumps), J.R.R. Tolkien, and the one person she credits for all her ideas of women empowerment to the literary works of Robin McKinley with her book The Hero and The Crown.

J.S. also enjoys watching movies and playing video games. Considered a geek by some, she’d rather call it geeky in a fun and quirky way.  Give her a little horror, action, and comedy over romance. She lives long and prosperous while adhering to the pulls of the force. RPG’s and survival horror are her preferences, but she’s up for anything fun.  She knows what to do during the Zombie Apocalypse but not sure what she would do if the Vampires took over the world or which side she would choose.

  1. I nominated you for the Wonderful Team Member Award. Congratulations and good luck with your books. http://legendsofwindemere.com/2013/05/14/wonderful-team-member-award-part-5/

  2. Get out! A fellow “The Hero and the Crown” fan! Now, that’s something you don’t see…ever. Except at the author’s website.

    • Its Robin’s fault I started reading fantasy and I love it!!!! It’s also her fault I am really big into strong female leads.

      Cheers to you!!!!

      • I’ve been favoring strong female leads in my own writing. For whatever reason, I rarely create strong male main characters. It’s normal for authors to write themselves into the lead, and I don’t usually see myself as the strong type:P So, my male leads are more of the quirky “clutz” type that get a few lucky punches in any fight to shine. I do the same with my female leads, but the women usually are a fine blend of docile charm and inexplicable courage:P I save the Amazon aspects for superheroine guises. [Sort of the whole Clark Kent/Superman system.]
