Mary Jeddore Blakney, known as Jae, is a freelance editor and author of two novels and dozens of short stories. Her short story "The Mammal Cage" won a statewide seasonal contest. Her first book, The Foreknowledge of Terror, came out in 2011. Her second, a science fiction novel entitled Where Empires Fear to Tread, in 2015. The Thirteenth Snare: Thirteen Stories of Kidnappings, Traps and Dead-End Situations, will be released this spring.
Inspired by writers such as Harriet Beecher Stowe and Gene Roddenberry, she often writes to bring social issues to light in a relatable way. She prefers to write her books slowly and base them on meticulous research.
The place Jae and her family call home is a log cabin in the New Hampshire woods. Abenaki cultural influence can still be seen there in values such as thrift, environmental responsibility and gender equality.
