Jocelyn is an office grunt by day and creator of romance and adventure by night. Born a farmer’s daughter with a vivid imagination, she spent her childhood dreaming up stories that remained untold until 2010.
With no formal training, she relied on the honest feedback of her writing group to take her from that first short story all the way to THE END of her first novel. She now has eight published novels and has recently signed a 3-book deal with Entangled Publishing.
When she isn’t slinging words, you can find her shooting her bow or enjoying the serenity of family life in her little house in the woods.

The right setting can relax, open, and inspire the imagination. I've been a writer my whole life, although I'd never written a word of fiction until 2009.
While soaking in the morning sun from the windows in the new home I shared with my husband and daughter, my wild imagination finally focused. One thought passed through my mind. Why not? Sure, I had a lot to learn, and the writing world is harsh and daunting, but I had the passion and the will. I just needed the way.
Besides my family, writing is the love of my life, my sanity, and my true calling. I hope to entertain you.
