Welcome to my blog. As you’ve likely ascertained from my web address, my name is Jean Jaques (pronounced jeen jay-kwess, as it is the English version of the name instead of the French). I’m a writer, a lover of philosophical musings, and a total nerd. In the realm of fiction, I have a passion for world-building and love writing science-fiction, fantasy, and horror. I also have a deep care for humanity and the world we inhabit, so my non-fiction writing tends toward social, psychological, environmental and political concerns.
Although I enjoy writing short pieces for this blog, writing novels has captured my heart. I have recently completed the first novel in a science fiction series and I’m looking forward to finding representation for traditional publishing. When I’m not writing, I can usually be found gaming or indulging in a story-driven TV series with my husband and partner in all things nerdy, reading a good book and sipping tea, or seeking new lands by means of nature hike, road trip, or international travel. To sum up, whether the journey is emotional, cerebral, physical, or all of the above, I long for adventure.
