Jelera Ames

Biography

Hmm, what to say, what to say? I'm a mother of three boys, which takes a lot of time and a lot of energy, especially as two of them are teenagers and the younger isn't even into the double digits yet. Although their father and I are not married we've managed to put nineteen years behind us and have walked the hills and mountains of life together with all the laughter, the crying fits and yelling a relationship needs and demands. I've so far only published the one book (which is need of some heavy editing) but I am currently working on two separate series. I'm hoping to have one finished before the end of the year. It's hard finding the time to write, especially during the school months when our lives seem to go out of control thanks to sports and other school functions. There's just never enough time in the day.

Anyhow, what else can I tell you about myself? I'm the oldest of six, though my parents split so three of the six are what others term 'half' siblings. There's half of each gender but I was ultimately raised with the bros so it was an easy transition for me when I had boy. I'm close to my brothers (sadly I don't know my sisters that well) and love them as much as I love week old moldy bread. I'm kidding. They're my brothers, I'm supposed to say things like that.

Two years ago I became an Aunt for the first time, which was exciting since I hadn't thought my bros would ever give me any nieces or nephews. That time around I got a nephew but in a few short months I'll get that niece I can spoil...you know, doing and buying actual girl things. It's the only thing I've missed out on having boys. Basically I'm surrounded by testosterone. Brothers, SO, sons, nephews...it just never ends. Finally, a niece, I'm beyond excited.

Anyhow, other than spending my days working and caring for home and hearth, I like to write. I also love to read. Both take me away from reality for a bit and it's nice to get away. I have a lot of little things I like to do actually. I like to paint, to play games, to wake long walks, to bake, to draw, to create, to...well, you get the idea. If something catches my interest, I have to try it. Makes for a busy life but hey, we're only here for a limited time so why not.

Okay, I guess that's about it. Any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Telling the stories that are always playing inside my head. I love getting those stories out and sharing them but also enjoy how characters will change and grow and twist until the story becomes a surprise even to me.
What do your fans mean to you?
Um, I've never given this much thought because I've never thought I'd have fans. That I might or do have those that like my work makes me feel beyond wonderful. I also enjoy the feedback, both negative and positive, it helps me grow as a person and a writer.
