I’m Jae Dansie. I’m an aspiring novelist.
I wrote my first novel when I was 14, and the writing never stopped. I’ve probably written a dozen or so novels between then and now. And while it partly kills me to think of some of those novels as “practice,” it’s brought me to where I am today. I’m a better writer because of it and I’ve learned a lot along the way.
That’s all fine and well, Jae, but is there anything else to you?
Anything else? Soooo glad you asked. When I’m not pounding away on the keyboard, you can find me busting a few jams on my guitar, getting down with my karaoke self, or consuming my favorite movies and TV shows in large amounts. You know, shows like Doctor Who, Chuck, Psych, Adventure Time, Firefly, Smallville, Farscape, and lots of j-dramas and anime. If I could only take one movie to watch on a desert island for the rest of my life, it would be a tough call between the Goonies and Back to the Future. I’m a mixed martial artist of mayhem, hoping if the writing gig doesn’t work out maybe I can work for Ra’s al Ghul in the League of Shadows. I mean, that League’s got some serious exclusivity! Yeah, definitely writing first…
As I continue on my journey to what I hope ends at writer extraordinaire, I want to share those things I’ve learned so perhaps other aspiring novelists can find their paths to success as well. You can email me at jaedansie (at) yahoo (dot) com
