Welcome to my Goodreads page.

I'm very fortunate to live in a writer's paradise on one of the small northern Gulf Islands off the eastern shore of Vancouver Island, British Columbia. The rugged beaches and towering fir and arbutus trees that surround me often end up in my stories. When I'm not pouring my imagination into my computer, I'm futzing in gardens, making a mess of the kitchen or hiking local trails. I write stories that entice you to believe the impossible and escape the everyday for a while. Enjoy the read!

I'm also on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/JPMcLeanBooks

Additionally, readers will sometimes tell me they think "x" is going to happen, or that "y" character is going to (fill in the blank). These remarks are fertile ground for my imagination, and I often build on the idea in the next book.(less)

Publication Date for Blood Mark

Blood Mark has a publication date:   October 19, 2021! If that seems like a long way off, I agree. But there’s still a lot of work ahead, e.g. incorporating copy and proofreading edits, finishing the back-of-the-book description, and writing the front and back-end matter. And before a cover can be finished, the interior files […]

“At the time, Margaret had been very angry with God, angry that all she had left of her mother was the promise of a ring.”
Diana Stevan, A Cry From The Deep

Ursula K. Le Guin
“A writer is a person who cares what words mean, what they say, how they say it. Writers know words are their way towards truth and freedom, and so they use them with care, with thought, with fear, with delight. By using words well they strengthen their souls. Story-tellers and poets spend their lives learning that skill and art of using words well. And their words make the souls of their readers stronger, brighter, deeper.”
Ursula K. Le Guin
