Featured today is Jacklynn M Desmond, author of the novel Sixteen and A Journey of Words story “Six Miles to Suring”.
Synopsis: A young woman fleeing an abusive relationship with her baby runs into some supernatural troubles.
What inspired you to write this story? A sudden, paranoia inducing episode of Deja vu while driving home from my parent’s cabin “Up North”. For about thirty seconds I was absolutely convinced I was going in circles. ‘What if?’ took over from there.
How long have you been writing: Forth grade. Mrs. Law’s class. I got bored.
What genre do you write in?  I have no idea. All over the board, really. I seem to like dead people.
What else are you writing at the moment?  I’m working on the next “of Words” submission, an erotica piece for an anthology, a sequel to my novella “Sixteen” and have some back burner projects. Because ADD is real.

Over the years, her poetry has also been published in various anthologies. Her debut novel, Tranquility, published in 2015, by Escargot Books and Music, was inspired by her work as a personal support worker specializing in dementia care.
