J.P. Grider


I am first and foremost, a mother of four wonderful children and a wife to a generous and terrific husband. They hold my heart.

My heart also holds dear, my stepdaughter, son-in-law and grandson, as well as my mom, dad, sister, four brothers and my grandmother....not to mention so many other family members and friends, both living and deceased, whom I love dearly.

My experiences and journey through life have given me the courage, finally, to write down all the stories that have been taking residence in my mind. Writing has always been a way for me to escape, but when you are raising four children, there aren't many opportunities for that. Knowing my passion for writing, my husband and children have decided to share in the household duties to give me that opportunity.

My past experiences in television production/writing, personal training /group fitness instruction, and of course, the trials I had endured before my husband turned my life into a fairy tale, have all contributed to the stories fabricated in my mind and on paper. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoy writing them.

Smashwords book reviews by J.P. Grider

  • A second Chance on Nov. 11, 2011
    (no rating)
    I loved this short story! It was poignant yet entertaining. In so very few words, Ana Star brings Devon and Selia to life and intimates the smarting pain of loneliness and depression. Five stars.
  • A second Chance on Nov. 11, 2011

    Ana Star brings the pain of loneliness and depression to the forefront, yet leaves us with hope.
  • The Vampire Hunter's Daughter: Part I on Nov. 19, 2011

    This was a great short story. My only complaing is that it was not longer. Thank goodness there is a part 2, because I can't wait to see what Chloe and Drew's relationship is about. Plus, I need to see her find Trevor. This book is s quick and interesting read. My review ends here because I am going to buy part 2.
