J.D. Stroube is an author, artist, and a full time psychology major. Her writing crosses many genre's, but most often gears towards fantasy and the paranormal.

J.D. intends to utilize her overwhelming need to know and understand things, to aid her in achieving her Doctorate degree. She then hopes to open her own practice to provide counseling for low income families and children.

In early 2014, J.D. suffered severe injuries, which caused her to postpone the release of her novels. However, she has since healed and is back to writing!

The injuries I sustained in the beginning of 2014 are finally making headway in the healing department, which means that my books will begin releasing once again! Take a look at the individual books to learn when they will be available. This will begin with the 3rd book in the caged series!

Intertwined (Poetry)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:31PM
Description: I wrote this poem after my Grandfather died when I was about 15 years old. It is unaltered, which means it is fairly raw. When he was dying, I pulled away from him. It was too difficult to watch. After he passed away, I felt guilty that I wasn't there for him. This poem is about my failure to stay at his side, and about what I envisioned for his afterlife.

“Life is filled with unanswered questions, but it is the courage to seek those answers that continues to give meaning to life. You can spend your life wallowing in despair, wondering why you were the one who was led towards the road strewn with pain, or you can be grateful that you are strong enough to survive it.”
J.D. Stroube, Caged by Damnation

“A complete stranger has the capacity to alter the life of another irrevocably. This domino effect has the capacity to change the course of an entire world. That is what life is; a chain reaction of individuals colliding with others and influencing their lives without realizing it. A decision that seems miniscule to you, may be monumental to the fate of the world.”
J.D. Stroube, Caged by Damnation

“There are people in the world, who are just wrong, and then there are the masses of population that are right, or at the very least they lie in the veil of between. I on the other hand, do not belong to any group. I don’t exist. It’s not that I don’t have substance; I have a body like everyone else. I can feel the fire when it burns against my skin, the rain when it caresses my face and the breeze as it fingers my hair. I have all the senses that other people do. I am just empty, inside.”
J.D. Stroube, Caged in Darkness

Sanette Hi J.D.,

Thanks for the add! I look forward to comparing books and opinions. I love meeting other true L.J. Smith fans, I read HER vampire diaries (I refuse to read the fake ones) books so many times growing up that they fell apart and I ended up having to search the web for original copies to replace them :-)

I have been writing most of my life, but I was never brave enough to let anyone read them. I finally decided that it was better to put myself out there. :) I have to admit that it feels amazing to see that people enjoy what I write. :) Thanks for accepting the friend request! :) BTW, I noticed you have Dark Lover on your to-read list. You should read it soon! I didn't fall in love with the series until book 2, but it is an amazing series!
