About the Author

J Helen Bonessi authorWhen I grew up, all I wanted to be was a mommy. Then, I wanted to be a teacher, or teacher-mommy. Then, in the ever-dreaded middle school years, I wanted to be a writer. I spent hours and hours alone in my room writing. I have the calluses (thirty some odd years later, ahem) to prove it.

In high school I took creative writing classes and published in my school’s lit mag and a variety of anthologies (before I really knew what they were). I continued creative writing in college and, while majoring in Communications, found myself expecting my first child.

At that point, my writing became incredibly efficient. I didn’t have time for creative writing anymore. I had a family to support!

Now, two more children and a set of twins later, I find myself bursting with stories! You can find me most often in the corner coffee shop, remotely supporting other writers with their book launching efforts while I doodle in Procreate.

Thank you for cheering me and other writer-mommies on by following my author page on Facebook, subscribing to my updates at http://www.TheFamilyBind.com and, of course, with the purchase of my book(s).
