MJ can't remember a time when she wasn't creating her own stories and considers every life experience fodder for her fiction.

Although her 30-year career in local television included such highlights as being bitten by a lion, preempting a US President for a college basketball game, giving a three-time world champion boxer a few black eyes, a mention in the Drudge Report, and meeting her husband, the urge to create her own stories never went away.

MJ lives in upstate New York with her husband. Music and cooking are two of her passions, and she enjoys baseball and college basketball, but she’s primarily focused on wine ... and writing.

M.J. Compton I write anyway. Even if it's the most dreadful string of words ever strung together, because I've found writing out the garbage gets me to the pearls.

MJ Monday-Manuscript Excerpt

Besieged by the Moon (tentative release date July 8, 2020) The cool night air felt light, as opposed to the heavy, humidity-laden summer nights of Phoebe’s home. Nothing weighed her down, not even the awkwardness of her mating with Parker. “Are you okay to walk?” Parker asked, as if she hadn’t already walked to the … Continue reading MJ Monday-Manuscript Excerpt Read more of this blog post »
