J.M. Earl


I live with my family in a small town in Ohio. I have a love for animals, as can probably be figured out by looking at my profile picture. I have a lot of hobbies, including creating several forms of art, playing guitar, listening to music, and doing basic clothes design. I also enjoy both reading books and writing creatively. Over the summer, I volunteer at my local nature park, and at my local public library. During this time, I am also an assistant coach to a t-ball team in the local Jr. Softball League. I find outdoor activities such as swimming, hiking, and going on nature walks to be a great way of clearing my mind.

Smashwords Interview

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Well, since I am still in high school, during the school year I am usually doing homework, studying, or napping after the school day is over. However, I have a lot of free time in the summer, and I like to use this time to do different kinds of art, make/listen to music, go swimming, read, and help out some locally. I also, of course, enjoy things like shopping and using social media.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes, I do. The first story that I ever wrote was actually when I was in about 3rd grade. I had just gotten a black cat named Midnight as a birthday present, and I adored him completely. At this time, there was also a story-writing contest going on at my local library. There were different age groups, and when I found out that I was allowed to enter, I jumped right on it. I worked for about a week on a story called "Midnight the Lonely Cat". It was a fictional account of how my cat Midnight had come to be mine. When I entered the writing contest, I actually won in my age group, and I was really excited about it. Ever since then I have been coming up with different ideas for stories that I could write.
