About the Author

For all the stalkers out there

– child of Grace – author – adventurer – freelance editor – hope seeker –

I’m Jane Maree. (Bet you didn’t guess that. 😛 )

I’m an adventurer at heart, always seeing the mystical and majesty in the mundane of life. I love exploring—whether it’s outdoors under the endless blue skies, or buried deep inside the pages of a whole new realm.

Along with crafting wild stories of my own, I dabble in playing several musical instruments, songwriting, martial-arts, eating pizza, and making people laugh.

Origin story

I went to school for ten weeks of kindergarten and took part in several rule-breaking activities. Accidentally being the black market supplier for a pranker, losing my hat every. single. day. Until I’m pretty sure the teacher was going crazy.

Ten weeks into my public education, I had enough funny stories to last me a while and switched to homeschooling instead. Because homeschooling is the best.

I wasn’t ever one of those kids that went around writing tiny stories willy nilly. In fact, I started writing by complete accident. As you do.

My older sister did the One Year Adventure Novel curriculum, and I decided the video lessons looked so interesting that I wanted to watch them myself. So I did. And even wrote a novel in the process. Even though my OYAN novel is now hidden in the deepest hole of doom, it dragged me into a whole new world of adventures and I haven’t left it since.

Amidst my kindergarten escapades, I actually quite enjoyed learning about grammar and punctuation and diagramming sentences. (What can I say? I was a nerd.) And long-story-short, I still love it. (Still a nerd.)

Since that first novel, I’ve written over eight manuscripts in several genres across the whole spectrum of fantasy and science fiction. My mind is constantly buzzing with new ideas and all of my characters yelling (terrible) advice to me.

Despite my superhero aspirations, I’m most often a quirky bundle of smiles and crazy ideas, hoping to brighten someone’s day with a little bit of joy.

The ‘official’ about me

Jane Maree is an Adventurer—exploring the endless wonders of God’s beautiful creation. She started writing by accident, but since the very beginning has loved the enchantment of words on paper. If you say anything about pizza, superheroes, books, or any of her many, many fandoms, she’ll come at the double.

Aside from crafting worlds using only twenty-six letters, she is a passionate Jesus-lover, freelance editor, self-trained martial artist, songwriter, and musician. In her spare time, she’s often off on random adventures in the name of story research. She seeks to inspire her readers to step out and become the heroes of hope that this world needs.

    Hey Jane Maree! I just found your blog through a follower… I saw your old title, “Maiden of the Misty Mountains, and I HAD to check it out… I’ve seen a lot of writing blogs, and while I love to write, I don’t always stick around if it doesn’t have plenty of life posts mixed in, because I love life posts, haha… but I LOVE your posts!!! I think it has something to do with that ENFP personality… I read another writer blog that is almost all writing related, and I just love it even when she talks about nothing but her book covers, haha! Y’all must be good at using all that enthusiasm ;). Thank you for sharing your blog and books with us!
    Blessings in Christ,
