Jasmine Shea Townsend


Hello, lovely people.

I'm here because writing pretty much took over my life.

I graduated high school in 2010, received a BA in creative writing in 2013, and got my MA in literature in 2015.

I like foreign languages and all things Japanese. I'm a vegetarian, a ballroom dancer, a video game player, a newbie programmer, an atheist, and - for better or worse - an Ohioan.


Smashwords Interview

What do your fans mean to you?
The world.
No, the universe.
No! The omniverse.
What are you working on next?
That question requires such a linear answer. I can't provide one because I'm working on, like, 50 projects at once. But suffice it to say, I'm focusing pretty heavily on my space fantasy.

Smashwords book reviews by Jasmine Shea Townsend

    Decent read, though I would have liked to see this more developed in a longer piece.

    The story-telling gets 3.5 stars. I'll admit, I was hooked. The only reason it didn't score higher was because there were times when the author used convenient plot devices, and when characters acted out-of-character in order to move the plot along. However! The writing itself gets 1.5 stars. This story really had a lot of potential. It would have been so much better had there been any sign of editing. There were countless spelling errors and omitted words. There were awkward phrases and too many cliches. There were also too many phrases that needed to be cut down, or cut out completely. For example, I can't count how many times I read, "briefest of moments." So, because I found the story enjoyable enough to read even through the terrible writing, I'll give it 3 stars over all.
