JM Carydice


I am the fourth child in a family of six and I grew up in a single parent household.
My father (God rest his soul), passed away (unexpectedly) in June 1970, hence leaving my mother to raise her six children alone (which I think she did remarkably well), but that's another story.
Things weren't ever easy. Yet that didn't matter to us because our up bringing was a pleasant one.
Daisy May was excellent in caring for her children and cleverly replaced all material losses with her love, great food and lots of other child friendly goodies.
I've always enjoyed writing and 'Aaron Apple and the Rain' (being my only publication to date), is the first book of a compilation I am creating about the alphabetical fruit and vegetable bunch (so keep a look out for book 2).
It is an excellent story book and very educational.
I chose to write children's books first because although my field is administration, I've spent more than thirty years caring for children (both in my professional and private life).
I also felt that (besides my experience in caring for children), my understanding of the type of things they enjoy doing and how they like to learn, more than qualifies me to write books that they would have fun reading.
I am currently working on some short stories and two novels, as well. Which I intend to complete soon.
I just pray my books are well received, as my ultimate aim is to please.
Lastly, I do hope you've enjoyed this brief bio, about me cause 'That's it folks! (for now)

Smashwords Interview

What are you working on next?
I have several projects I am presently working on. One being the rest of the books in the Alphabetical Fruit and Vegetable Bunch series. Another had originally started out as a young adults book but because the contents covers a number of adult genres (including sex and violence) I think it needs censoring and am turning it into a novel. Last but not least my main novel 'Never Judge a Book' is my baby of the lot and one I will have to dedicate a number of years to if I want it to come be just as I had envisaged it.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Usually with the family. Catching up on stuff or carrying out my regular daily duties.
