P. J. Dean has always loved making up stories for as long as she can recall. Fiction book writing was a no-brainer. Scribbling stories since childhood, she put away the thought of becoming a published writer as she got older and as life’s responsibilities beckoned. Work, ill family members and other distractions of lesser urgency stayed her dream. But through it all she never stopped writing. Writing was her escape. It kept her dream alive. After a job loss and after the family illnesses ended, she concentrated on writing with an aim to be published. She finally did, at first on her own, then through an early e-pub and now with Extasy Books. She thanks Extasy for picking her up.

The job/calling/passion is portable. I still do not use a computer to write. As I've said, I write everything out longhand cursive. By the time I transfer it to WORD, It's been edited as much as I think it needs. I cannot sit staring into a stark screen for hours on end. UGH! I only need pens/pencils, legal pads, a dictionary, my imagination and access to internet if I need it for research.(less)

don't know where to begin. I like historicals. This wasn't one. Speech too modern. No reference to historical time and place other than it's during slavery.

P.J. Dean This is P. J. herself, not a friend. Just wanted to assure readers that "KINDRED" is available again after 3 years off the radar. So, no you are not seeing double. It's got a new cover, been re-edited and came out 11-1-2014!


message 3: by P.J.

P.J. Dean The rights to "Kindred" have been returned to me. After re-editing and re-vising, I will offer it to either eXtasy Books or Devine Destinies to be considered for publication.


message 2: by P.J.

P.J. Dean I don't know how you all do it. I barely have time to read my bills, let alone work, write and sleep. Hats off to you all.


Bradley I hope you are having a good day! =)
