J E Bonneau


I'm loud and silly. I wear my heart on my sleeve and my spleen on my raincoat. I look like everyone else you know. (If we're going to have a successful revolution, we have to look like them.)
I've been writing since I was nine. I finished my first book at seventeen and my second twenty-three years later.
In between I had a life, but I always came back to writing. Finally I decided for my own well being I needed to commit to it. And here you will see what that commitment has wrought.

Smashwords book reviews by J E Bonneau

  • scratch on March 04, 2012

    A parody that is still an artistic expression in it's own right. In a world where Scary Movie, Date Movie, and Lame Rip-Off Movie have tried to equate parody with an inability to create an original idea. This harkens back to a time when it meant 'like a satire, but funnier'. This is a fun adventure story with well executed art and just enough leather clad heroics to keep things interesting.
  • Everybody Has Those Thoughts So It Doesn't Mean You're Gay on March 04, 2012

    Amusing and accessible story explaining how everyone has 'those thoughts'. Story got bogged down in a couple places from author trying to write to kids at their level and just coming off forced and lazy. Also Dad should have explained to the little girl that he needed to talk to junior privately not gleefully ditched her.
  • In The Closet on March 06, 2012

    quick easy read, and the first story to make me cry in years.
  • Surfacing on March 06, 2012

    I loved this story. It truly captures the vibe of a first date when your head is spinning. I wish I had a date like this when I was in high school.
  • Smashwords Style Guide on March 06, 2012

    Thank you for this invaluable resource. It offered amazing help, I followed it exactly and was included in the premium catalog without any changes needed
  • A Not-So-Grimm Fairytale on March 06, 2012

    I loved this story. Another joyful silly entry into the modern fairy tale canon

  • Skankarella on March 08, 2012

    This book made me laugh and cry and cry while laughing more times then I can count. I don't remember a time that's happened before. It makes an old fairie tale (the story that has been most filmed and interpreted of all stories)fresh and new. I won't break it down into the scenes I loved because I don't want to spoil it. But I recommend it highly and wholeheartedly.
  • Bea Woolf on March 25, 2012

    fun urban fantasy offering. Relatable heroine and good pace to the story. I found the ending a little disappointing. It felt a bit abrupt, but I would definitely recommend the book.
  • Grl2grl 2: Give Me a "D" on March 25, 2012

    Touching relateable story. I truly felt the heroines pain and confusion. The story really came alive.
  • Grl2grl 2: Her Secret Life on March 25, 2012

    great story. Very real. I cried. I could really relate to what the mother was going through. To how hard it is to be yourself when that's not who your family thinks you are or wants you to be.
