I'm Janeen Kalee Peckford, born in a small town in Newfoundland. I'm not the most smart person you'll meet, but I like to pretend I am. When I'm not wasting my time watching cheesy teenage tv shows, you'll usually find me with a guitar, piano, microphone or computer. I like to shock people, so my books are usually controversial. I want to be an author but I'll be completely satisfied teaching future authors some day. My decision to choose writing as a life goal started with a teacher's comment. It was the 5th grade and we were assigned to write a 5 page poetry book. She said, "I look forward to reading your writing in print some day". I really don't like letting people down.
