Dear Author,
Do not worry that your premises are ordinary or your plots are too predictable. If I like your voice, you can write almost any story you love, and I and many others will love it too. Let your art be fully you. The books I cherish are soul-friends. They are imperfect, quiet, true companions.

I'm Jade, a poet, painter, and yoga teacher. I live in southeastern Massachusetts and am from Brooklyn, New York. Besides art and yoga, I love nature, spirituality, music, tea, and a good party.


  1. You are awesome. Thank you for your endless encouragement! You definitely have a pastor's heart. If you ever decide to go into the ministry, I'd gladly travel to sit in a Sunday service, listening to your words.Be blessed!
