J.M. is an author, screenwriter, and professional smartypants. Her novel "A Woman of the Sea" was named a winner of the 2019 WATTY AWARD for Historical Fiction.
With an MA in Communications and Culture, she's appeared in podcasts, documentaries, and on radio and television to discuss all things geeky through the lens of academia. She also has an addiction to scarves, "Doctor Who", and tea, which may or may not all be related. Her life's ambition is to have stepped foot on every continent (only 3 left!)
Her steampunk YA action-adventure series "The Skylark's Saga" was signed to a shopping agreement for an animated television series in 2018, and her feature-length screenplay "To A Stranger" is currently in pre-production with a Toronto-based house.
