Hello! I’m Jaina, author and lover of words.
I have been writing for as long as I have known how to hold a pencil. My first story was about a little girl who ran away from home, and lived in a hollow tree.
Since then, I’ve written stories in nearly every genre in the world… some more successfully than others. So far, my best stories have been historical and fantasy, with heroines who are learning who they are and how to navigate the world. And, of course, have some great adventures!
My favorite authors run the gamut from Jane Austen (of course) and C. S. Lewis to Shannon Hale and J. K. Rowling.
The books that changed my life, aside from pretty much anything by those authors, include the Anne of Green Gables series, Dracula, the City of God series, and pretty much all the Star Wars novels published before, oh, about 2004. (I got a little bit obsessed in my high school years.)
