Growing up in Ontario, Canada, MJ was the only child of a single mom. MJ’s passion for the arts ignited at a young age as she wrote adventure stories and read them aloud to close family and friends. The dramatic arts became a focus in high school as an aid to understanding character motivation in her writing. Majoring in Theatre Production at University, with a minor in English, she went on to teach both elementary and high school for 10 years throughout Simcoe County.

MJ currently lives with her husband and young son in Caledon, Ontario. She keeps busy these days writing, editing for Love Knot Books, and helping coach Indie Authors. She firmly believes that if she hadn’t been born a Virgo, she would not be half as organized as necessary to

My "summer reading list" of books I've chosen to read (and won't be reading because I promised someone I would) consists of: Kristen's Britain's Green Rider Series (the latest two books), Sarah J. Maas' Assassin Series (book 4 & Assassin's Blade), Ryan T. McFadden's Black Swan series (book 1 - Cursed), and Krista D. Ball's Hustler's, Harlots, and Heroes book for writers -- and that's just what's on my plate as of mid-May ;)(less)

I heard rumours about this in my teen years from my half-brother's mom (yep, same dad) but didn't actually get this confirmed until after my father's premature death (at age 63) when my own mother said I had an older half-sister out there somewhere in the world. What were the circumstances behind the "fling" and why did the baby's mother not want my father around after the fact? Why was this never spoken of or confirmed until after my father's death? Dun, dun, dun ;)(less)
