I have lived in various places around the US, from Georgia to California. I currently reside in Tennessee. An author of adult romances and YA romances (under Jessie Colter), I began my writing career as a poet. My first poem was published when I was 16, but that was just the start. Many published poems later, as well as an Editor's Choice Award for "My World is Tumbling Down", I decided to try my hand at writing novels.
When I'm not writing, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, or going to the beach. I'm also an avid horse lover and own an American Saddlebred gelding, who occasionally needs to be reminded he's not a dog.
I enjoy reading, going to the movies, riding horses, and going for long walks through wooded trails.
