So I’m in that hellish place between drafts and waiting for revision letters, so I’ve decided to spend my time in headache-inducing pursuits, like re-designing my website. Anyway, please excuse the mess. It’s mostly updated. Mostly.
Authenticity is a concept I’ve thought about a lot since moving to North Carolina. Also, I have news. :)
HOUSEMATE: Where are you going?
JJ: No, camera. I’ve embraced Southern-ness, but not that much. Yet.
What’s cooking? Well, a lot, actually. A LOT. Plus, a recipe for Roast Beef Tacos with Almond Flour Tortillas!
The shock of having a House has certainly outweighed the culture shock of moving from New York to North Carolina, or at least, it has this week.
May 1st means that I have about 6 weeks left in New York City. Put that way, it doesn’t seem like nearly enough time. Enough time to wrap everything up on my end, enough time to pack, enough time to say goodbye to New York.

I spent the past couple of days in North Carolina looking at houses with Bear (and we’ve bought one, huzzah!). Down south, all the trees were already in bloom, but NYC is still a little behind the times in terms of spring. Nevertheless, the peach tree outside my fire escape is optimistic. Look! A bud is about to bloom!
S. Jae-Jones (called JJ) is a writer, artist, and adrenaline junkie. Before moving down to grits country, she was an editor at St. Martin’s Press in New York City, where she read and acquired YA. When not obsessing over books, she can be found rock climbing, skydiving, or taking her dog on ridiculously long hikes. A southern California native, she now lives in North Carolina with her doctor Bear, a stuffed baby harp seal named White-Harp, and a husky-dog called Bentley.
