My Link – is moving here to join!

Watch for as it moves from another server to I will have two links to arrive here. You will still be able to use to get here. will stop connecting to a website I created with another server. That site will no longer exist. Instead I will have a page dedicated to my Website with books, links to purchase and info about new books coming and special offers.

I am keeping my fingers crossed that this will all work out! It may take a little while to get the link up and running. So, don’t despair. You can come over as usual to for all the information about my books. All Jemsbooks are available for purchasing at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Having a blog and a separate website was not such a good idea. It was more work for me to update at two separate venues. Now I will just come to my blog/website to do all the updates.

New book I am currently working on is a romance/psychological mystery. It is still evolving and it will not be published until later this year or early next year. I am moving along and already completed 10 chapters as of August 2020.

Thank you for your kind support of my blog and website over the last several years. I wouldn’t be able to do any of this without your support, readership and reviews wherever you purchased my books.

As I have mentioned before, being an Indie Author is an exhausting journey with more work than I ever imagined, not all of it fun! What goes into being an Indie Author you ask? Writing, editing, copyrighting, obtaining ISBN and LCCN, publishing, promoting endlessly.

I thoroughly enjoy writing and creating stories to entertain and delight all ages. As long as I am able I will continue to do so. You keep reading and I will keep writing! Thank you!
