About Jaye Em Edgecliff

I am an author.

I write teen fiction; primarily romantic teen fiction.

I do not write autobiographies. Also, I really think it odd that people would want to know much about me. Isn't it enough to know that I am the author of [Insert one of my titles here]?

Should it matter if I live in Morocco or Maine? (neither) Do I also speak Swahili? (nope, but it's fun to say, isn't it?) Do I prefer Chocolate or Strawberry? (chocolate chip cookie dough)

Maybe. Though I can't imagine what you'd want to know or what it's important to know.

But … recent events have shown me that, maybe, it's important to let a few details be known because somewhere might be a troubled soul looking for some spark of connection to know that she's not alone and that, maybe, things will be okay. With that I will be forthcoming that, yes, the rumours are true – I'm a transsexual lesbian married to a woman. The OTHER rumours, sadly, aren't libel/slander either, I really do live in the US and was, in fact, born here … sorry, just for a lot of things my country or its people probably did to offend you, I'm sorry. And, yes, I've got two cats and a dog.

Review by: Shannon Haddock on July 13, 2013 :
The story is exactly as described in the description. The two high school freshmen fall in love at first sight, and the book is about them questioning whether it's really love or if it's just lust and the complications they experience at things like a school dance due to being homosexual.

One of the things I liked the most about it was that most of the problems between the girls stemmed not from things like lusting after others or any of the other typical romance novel clich├ęs, instead 99% of their problems stemmed from simply misunderstanding what the other meant. It reminded me of a romantic comedy, which, as far as I know, doesn't tend to be a WRITTEN genre.

There are things about it that may make it wrong for some people: Both sets of parents are rather open-minded even where their children's sex lives are concerned, and the girls are more mature acting than many, but by no means all, real world 14-year-olds. And a little bit of suspension of disbelief might be necessary to deal with just how quickly they fall in love -- but I think this is handled well since the girls themselves question it.

All in all, a very good book, and I eagerly await book two.
