“J9” is Janine minus the A. That’s me! I live in a hovel in a valley below a mountain northeast of Los Angeles with people that I like, mostly. I used to have a job that fed my family no matter how much I loathed it. Then I lost it. So after I stopped feeling sorry for myself I took writing classes, read tons, got some AA degrees, met other writers, made new friends, learned new things, became a grandmother, and started this blog.
Let’s see where we go from here.
