Meet Jaye Garland!

Jaye Garland

Some authors will tell you they’ve been writing from the day they first held a crayon. Well, other than chubby little fingers, I wasn’t that child.

Instead, I explored my dad’s pastures and creek beds pretending to be Sacajawea, building forts, and waging imaginary war against pirates or invading Vikings. Of course, I was the heroine and my team always won.

Then one day, I scribbled a skeleton plot on the back of an envelope.  I’d made the leap from avid reader to heartfelt writer and resumed living vicariously through characters of my own creation.

Thanks to my very own hero hubby, we’ve traveled the world experiencing real-life adventures, all the while collecting scraps of plots and snippets of characters for my next fictional project.

    I am so happy for you … I am so looking forward to reading your first book. I remember all you very intricate notes taped up on the closet doors in your office overseas. I just knew you would accomplish the dream you’ve worked so hard on. Congratulations on your first book and many more to come. Some things in life are just well worth waiting for.

      Hi Penny!!!!! Oh wow, I miss you! We had some good times overseas. Thanks for following along with my writing career. It’s just going to get better and better, I promise. You were there when I wrote the first draft of The 25th Hour. Love you!

        Thanks for the reply Janet, I’m a tad tardy at getting back to you, but, I’ve been counting down the days waiting for your book. Have Kindle downloaded on my ipad eagerly waiting for the 29th. I do have the right date I hope. So, so, so looking forward to it. Miss you too. We could tell some awesome stories of our days in Saudi. They were a once in a lifetime opportunity that not many people get the opportunity to experience. So, glad that we did and just think, had we not had the wonderful husbands that we do, we would never have had that chance and, we would never have met each other! Funny how fate works, isn’t it? Take care and HAPPY WRITING! Love from “The Falls”

    Oh my goodness, life does get in the way these days. It’s my turn to be responding late. Sorry! You are right, my release date was the 29th and I’ll be contacting you directly. Hubby says we need to get up there and visit with you guys, so we need to make that happen! Hugs, Jaye
