JL Whitaker is an American Australian author who lets her characters tell their stories their way, setting them loose in places from metro Melbourne to small town USA to reach 'The End'. Whether men or women, young or old, her main characters are in transition, often in helping professions, and even sometimes cloned for space exploration. She is not a one-trick pony, writing in several genres including women's fiction, mystery, YA and speculative fiction. It's much more fun that way.
Having pursued a career in many levels of education and IT consulting, in both the US and Australia, her books share a lifetime of observations of people coping well and not so well with what life throws at them. Lessons are always learned along the way.
Besides writing, JL also volunteers for a local computer user group, and as President and long time member of a local women's club, raising funds for disadvantaged students.
"On A Life's Edge" is her debut novel. More coming soon!
