J. E. Martin has been telling stories for as long as she can remember. As a child, she wrote and illustrated a magnificent two-page graphic novel about gerbils. She won her first writing award when she was ten years old. It wasn’t for the gerbil thing.

Her background is in theatre as an actor and director, and she enjoys some small-town fame as a radio personality. She also loves music, photography, digital art, the ocean, animals, and—not surprisingly—reading.

She currently lives in the Southeast with her husband, their three cats, and one dog. When she isn’t writing or traveling, she’s thinking about writing and traveling.

It seemed like characters and scenarios always came to me rather vividly when I was brain-deep in a coloring book.
I can do the same thing these days--I have a collection of coloring books (half with pretty, frilly pictures and the other half with naughty words) that came from my mom and husband. You can probably guess which half came from which person!
If I want to let me mind wander on a storyline or character, I can sit down with a coloring book and a beverage and go to town.
But usually, inspiration strikes at the worst times--while I'm trying to go to sleep, or when I've just started to vacuum. When that happens, I go over the ideas that come to me a few times mentally to commit them to memory, and I write them down as soon as I can.
I have also been known to note them in my phone right away if they're just too good to pass up.(less)

I told my husband I thought I could sit down and write an erotic short in one evening. He challenged me to do it, and I did it.

Lathan Black, the main character of that erotic short, wouldn't leave me alone, though. He kept nagging at me, telling me that wasn't the way the story went. I listened, and let him open the door to his world for me. The universe I found thanks to him is the basis for the entire Black Wolf series and the foundation for all the novels in the UNITY universe.(less)

" LOL - thanks for fixing the wolf!

No worries on the combining editions part. If it's showing up under my name at all, I'm happy.

Cheers!
