Hi, I’m bestselling Author, JJ King!
I was born and raised on the beautiful island of Newfoundland and often feel closer to my little slice of Earth than I do to anything else, other than my family of course. Everything about this place appeals to me; the people, the customs, and the language here have shaped my entire world and gifted me with a flair for romance.
I have been writing all my life, but only recently and with the support of people dear to my heart has it become more than just a hobby. I’ve taken my love of reading romance to the next level and I’m so happy I did.
As for who I am and what I’m like… I’m funny, or at least I think I am. I’m irreverent about a lot of things and believe Buffy the Vampire Slayer to be the best thing to come out of television. I love reading but I rarely get the chance anymore because I’m usually writing. My go to reading choice is paranormal but I’m really getting into contemporary. It’s always romance, though. I did a degree in English Literature and loved most of the classics and poetry, but I love a good romance and I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that.
I have two Author besties, Candace Osmond and Juanita Critch (J. Margot Critch). They are amazing people and fantastic Authors. Go buy their books!
As for my writing…. Blood of Eden – The Guardians I, is my first publication
and, like a first-born child, will always be my favorite. Joking.
Book II of The Guardians, My Brother’s Keeper went live November 20th to fantastic reception. I’ll be working on book III in the new year and hope to have it released by the Fall of 2017.
My first contemporary romance, Finding the Right Words, was published December 8th by Evernight Publishing!! Just in time for Christmas!
There’s more in the works… there always is. A seven story arc about a family based out of Bangor, Maine, is my current project. I can’t wait to slip you little sneak peaks along the way!
