J.A. Owenby is an Amazon bestselling author and lives in the beautiful Pacific Northwest with her husband and cat.

She's a published author of six short stories, and she is currently working on her fourth full-length novel. She also runs her own business as a professional resume writer and interview coach—she helps people find jobs they love.

J.A. is an avid reader of thrillers, romance, new adult, and young adult novels. She loves music, movies, and good wine. And call her crazy, but she loves the rainy Pacific Northwest; she gets her best story ideas while listening to the rain pattering against the windows in front of the fireplace.

You can follow the progress of her upcoming novel on Facebook at Author J.A. Owenby and on Twitter @jaowenby

Hi James,
We do follow each other's blogs. Mine is Jen's Thoughts at https://jenowenby.wordpress.com/. You comment occasionally. :) Thank you for your support!

My novel is based on my short story (on Amazon) Tears in the Sun. It falls in with New Adult, but also deals with the heavy issues of mental illness and abuse. The novel brings it out much more and introduces additional characters too.

I'm finding that I also enjoy writing both shorts and novels.

Thank you for reaching out and connecting more!(less)
