Jaye Tomas has "scribbled" all her life but found her audience growing hugely after she created her Chimera Poetry blog.
Her first Book, 'Nocturnes', was very well received and 'Carnevale' was released with very flattering feedback! Her latest book 'What Lies Beneath' was just published in May 2016.
Jaye loves all things bookish and has a minor obsession with hedgehogs.
Originally from Chicago, she is currently residing in the UK but has begun to cast her eyes in other directions.
"The beauty of the story, she says, is in the journey, not the arrival."

The squares are filled and in line we wait,
soft bellied mannequins,
secure in our appointed space,
our borders.
Who will be the first to cross?
What paint, what slogan will rise like a balloon and clutch the senses,
if for but a moment, in shutter speed.
Who will break the line?
Who will stand motionless?
Putting their faith in their painted blind,
believing it waterproof and impregnable,
until the rain... Read more of this blog post »
