From as young as I can remember, I have soothed myself to sleep by imagining epic stories of heroes, heroines, sorceresses, dragons, angels, and demons. I based my stories on the books and movies I was watching and the narratives that moved and inspired me.

I was as excited and delighted with Pride and Prejudice and Jane Eyre as I was with Battlestar Galactica (the original TV series). The Mists of Avalon, an Arthurian legend retelling from the point of view of the female characters, had as much effect on me as Cosmos by Carl Sagan.

I imagined myself occupying the boots of the hero as much as I occupied the glass slippers of the damsel in distress. The first one was what I wanted to be; the second was what society wanted me to be, and I belie

Hi Kat,

The novel Ahe'ey was first published in chapters/episodes. This allowed me to receive early feedback from the community. Now I'm focusing on publishing and marketing the entire book that covers all episodes.

I am working on a second book on the same series, still to be named. It is likely that I will use the same approach and first release book two in episodes.

I expect to release the first episode of book two within 4 to 6 months. We are all keen to find out what happens in both worlds. I predict some dark times...

Much Love, J.(less)
Jamie Le Fay Thanks. I bought them in a friendly shop in sunny Portugal around Christmas time last year. :)

“I don't see how being handsome can possibly harm a man. It's just another cheap privilege that took zero effort to attain.”
Jamie Le Fay, Gravitational Pull

“Manhood is, today, an uncertain, frail status that is easily threatened. Insecure men attempt to affirm their manliness physically and symbolically. Zanus's appeal speaks to the insecurities of men raised with traditional values; men trapped in a world that is pulling the rug under their feet and challenging everything they believe in.”
Jamie Le Fay, Gravitational Pull

“Don't underestimate him, Morgan. Many, especially men, see the rise of minorities as a threat to their cultural and economic dominance. White men are losing their jobs to women, minorities and people at the other end of the supply chain in third world countries. Beleaguered voters will support him in the hope that he will restore their vanished status."
"People won't take him seriously. This is the man that said on national TV that a woman's place is in the kitchen."
"That may indeed be his biggest strength.”
Jamie Le Fay, Gravitational Pull

“Do you really think that Walter has a chance of becoming president in two years?"
"Yes, I do. I believe that, in the next few years, we are likely to experience a war between a large population of disenfranchised, jobless, Western Caucasian men and everyone else. The status quo is being disrupted, and they don't like it. Don't expect them to give up power willingly. The forces you challenge are dangerous and don't play fair or clean.”

“Because when you kiss your first boy or girl, you don't want to be so caught up in your lack of self-worth that you forget to enjoy the kiss, that you forget that you deserve the pleasure of that moment. You don't want to be so caught up in your lack of self-worth that you become an object of his or her desire, a grateful unworthy slave to his or her attention.”
Jamie Le Fay, Disillusion

“You are the most powerful army in the world; you are the future of this planet. You cannot, you will not spend one more minute of your time looking in a mirror wishing you looked different.”
