J. Mercer

J. Mercer grew up in Wisconsin where she walked home from school with her head in a book, filled notebooks with stories in junior high, then went to college for accounting and psychology only to open a dog daycare. She now writes women’s fiction and young adult novels, freelance edits, and talks revision on The Novel Ending podcast. She wishes she were an expert linguist and enjoys exploring with her husband and two daughters.
