Hi I’m J.J. Hartly, a Writer, mainly speculative fiction, and Creative Artist of apparel, games, merchandise, novelties, and toys.

I used to say that I’m an “Aspiring Author”, until I read this great post: 5 Reason to drop ‘Aspiring’ from ‘Aspiring Author’.

For all of the 5 reasons listed in the article, I am now and henceforth a Writer!

Once I get published … then I’ll probably switch over to ‘Author’ … but who knows for sure?

I will forever be learning the art and craft of writing, usually self-taught through reading and writing exercises, but I do have my favorite mentors that I seem to always gravitate towards.

I put together a short list of Favorites Writers Here!
