Originally, it started from a short story involving flamingos, a story available to read now, click here. As for the Jade, it is both my favorite shade of green and the name of my favorite Mortal Kombat character. Due to these two factors, I used the combination for my gamer persona online for autonomy.
Then, when I started to create more of an online presence for my writing and other interests, I carried over the name to be used for my creative endeavors no matter the artistic medium. I am a multi-dimensional being and wanted a name that transcended even the one I was given at birth.
By day I am a school librarian and in my off time I am a writer, as well as an avid researcher. You will find my genres currently lean towards the more provocative romance, however I am starting some new projects soon for mystery-suspense and have almost finished a non-fiction project that will be released later in time for Autumn equinox, this year.
