J.M. Paul has loved to write since she first picked up a crayon as a child. Much of her life has been spent telling stories, daydreaming, and weaving her creative ideas into New Adult and Young Adult novels.

A native of Michigan and a graduate of Grand Valley State University, J.M. Paul lives with her high-school-sweetheart-turned husband and two dog-children, Finnigan and Rowan, on a small lake she considers her personal paradise.

When J.M. Paul’s not writing or at her full-time job where she’s the marketing communications/copywriter ninja, she spends her time reading, boating, running, watching sports, playing photographer, laughing with family and friends, or chasing her four-legged troublemakers around the house.

I bang my head against a wall and scream, "Why, why, why have the voices in my head stopped talking to me!"

No, not really, but it would be funny if I did. :)

I usually stop writing, put the story to the side and let it rest. Sometimes I need to think about a scene, dialog, etc. for a few days before the perfect idea hits me. When something does pop into my head, I usually let it fester for a little while, because not every idea is a good idea. If the thought is still there in a couple days, if it still sticks and makes me think about it, plan it out, then I'll go with it. Even if the idea doesn't work or fit, it at least got me writing again, which always leads me to what was REALLY supposed to happen.

I also listen to music, take a drive, a run, a walk, play with my dogs, talk it out with my beta readers... And if that fails, then I start banging my head against a wall. ;)(less)

It makes me feel like Oz, where I get to control, play with, and sometimes ruin, my characters lives, although I think my characters more so control me. :)

I love the entire process of writing. Birthing a new idea, how it slowly seeps in with small details—like a location, a character name or a quiet voice whispering in my ear—then growing into bigger details like character traits, a louder voice that starts to scream and won’t let me sleep at night, to a storyline that develops into scenes and dialog…everything is exhilarating. Every. Single. Thing. Even the blood, sweat, and tears on my keyboard.

But, the absolute best part of being a writer? My readers. Without them, I wouldn’t be here. I love to hear how my story touched them, made them think, feel, laugh, get angry, cry… It’s the best feeling in the world.(less)
