Jae is the author of twenty-three award-winning lesbian romances.
She lives in the sunniest city in Germany, near the French and Swiss borders. The writing bug bit her at the age of eleven.
She used to work as a psychologist but gave up her day job in 2013 to become a full-time writer and a part-time editor. As far as she’s concerned, it’s the best job in the world.
When she’s not writing, she is an avid reader of lesbian books, indulges her ice cream and stationery addictions, and watches way too many crime shows.
In the FAQ section, you’ll find my answers to the most frequently asked questions about my work, including:
– When’s your next book coming out?
– Will you write any more books in my favorite series?
– What are you working on right now?
– Which order should I read your books in?
