About Jaime

 

I’ve been writing for various publishers since the fall of 2008, although I’ve been writing In stepmedfor myself far longer. I’m often asked why men? What’s so fascinating about writing stories about men falling in love? It’s never been an easy question to answer. I just always have written stories about men, and as I reached the age where I started to fall in love (and that happened on a fairly regular basis, and not always with men, myself) my characters grew along with me. For a long time, I thought I was pretty odd.

When I discovered the internet, in the form of text chat rooms in university, and that‘s as close an approximation on age as you’re going to get, I realized I was not the only one who had this fascination. There were other writers out there writing the stories I wanted to read, and reading the kind of stories I was writing. Sometime between then and now, an author was born.

If you flip through the pages of my site, you’ll find plenty of free reading. I also write for Freya’s Bower,  Pink Petal Books, Dreamspinner Press, Total E-Bound and MLR Press.

When I’m not writing, I’m probably reading, and you can find all kinds of opinions (other people call them reviews, but let’s call a spade a spade and acknowledge that I like to spout my opinion) about what I read on Goodreads, at Kuriousity, a manga and yaoi review site, and on my website under the category of “Book Talk”.

So, browse around, have a read, buy a book, if you feel so inclined, and do let me know what you think. I’d love to hear from you.

Where I’ll Be

    Hey, I remember those text rooms! And you would sit bleary eyed typing away with folks in a computer lab, usually on some kind of terminal screen that was black with bright green font. Oh my. I dating myself. Pay no attention to me. I got the English degree because I love to write, then realized I couldn’t make any money at it. :D You have gotten a hell of a lot further than I have, and it’s because your writing is awesome!

    Are you going to do anymore books in the Tales From Rainbow Alley Series? I personally loved all the books in this series. I don’t know why the MM books interest me the most but I like them and am always looking for books in this genre. I read all types of books in all genres from shifters to Claire Thompson and her hard biting BDSM. Crazy I know but I just love to read a good book. Thankyou for sharing your love for writting with all of us who are fans. Sheila

      Hi, Sheila;

      Absolutely. i have at least two more Rainbow Alley novels in the works, as well as a few shorter stories/novellas. I know what you mean about the m/m books being intriguing. I guess it’s obvious I think the same :) Thanks so much for your support, and watch my coming soon page for more details on the Rainbow Alley books and my other releases.

  3. Avalie says:

    I love the Rainbow alley books as well. Finders keepers is my favourite of all Jaime’s books I’ve read (one of my rare 5 stars which puts Jaime on my essential to buy list). Great to hear there will be more. Will also be investigating the free stories now I’ve found your website.

    • adminj says:

      Thank you, Avalie! I’m in the middle of Skate’s book now, and Jacob’s is well under way too. I hope you like them as much!

  4. Katie says:

    Already left a comment on goodreads regarding your story for the Love Is Write event. Just wanted to stop by your website, check out your other stuff, and let you know I loved the story. :) Thanks for your writing, you rock. And that I hope there’s more from the dragon world soon!

    • adminj says:

      Hey, Katie :) so glad you liked it. :) I wasn’t even aware it was up yet, so the heads up is also nice. Thanks for taking the time to come visit. As for more from the dragon boys, lots of thing brewing in the back of my mind, so one never knows.

    Interesting post. Glad to meet you on this tour.

  6. Jaime – I recall very well the “text chat rooms” and/or the Bulletin Boards (BBs) via dial-up internet; ( so I know your about-age!) oh the frustration getting connected, but once online and reading the messages, I felt “connected” to others like me, looking for the sames things, such as friendship, bar-buddy, etc. I love your writing of course; your stories in Stealing My Heart antho and Immortal Fire antho. I enjoyed reading your blog positing re: About Jaime.

    • Jaime says:

      Wow, Jon, that was a long time ago, those chat rooms, huh? lol! It’s a huge compliment to me that you’ve read and enjoyed my writing. Thank you!

  7. Marie W says:

    I will wait patiently HONEST for more more Tales From Rainbow Alley Series :)
    Marie*

    • Jaime says:

      Marie, anyone *still* waiting, patiently or otherwise for more Rainbow Alley books has already been more patient than this writer deserves. I swear there are at least two more coming. My organization and time management skills…lack, sadly.

    I just finished ‘Door at the End of Summer ,..’ And wanted to cry! Is there a sequel? You are a gifted writer and the emotions the characters feel pour off the pages. Thank you for a beautiful story!

  10. amy says:

    I just finished reading the foster family and it was excellent. I was wandering if there will be more written about these characters in the future??

    • Jaime says:

      Honestly, I planned for this to be a one-off. Unless the characters come back with a new story, or something, I can’t say there’s any plan for another in the series. If you’re a member of the m/m romance group on Goodreads, you can follow this link: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/18250353-door-at-the-end-of-summer and the link you’ll find there to a story caleld “The Door at the End of Summer,” which is about Charlie, Malcolm, and a young college student called Allister, way back when the guys were much younger. It’s sort of a prequel, I guess, and it’s free.
