About the Author

Blurbarian Since February 2008
Name Jennifer May
Location French West Indies.
My Occupation Artist/author.
My Bio Boredom I have discovered is a great stimulant to writing. Travelling in a van, instead of a sail boat, there was nothing to pull on, no watch to keep, so I played with the dashboard buttons and windows until I was told off.
What to do? I thought, here I am travelling, most people would wind the hind tail off a donkey to do this, so why am I going crazy.
A little Zen training had happened some years before, "Notice" said the guru. "and write it down." So this is how and why I started to write. I am a complete novice, but what the heck. It is fun!
If you meet me today I will want to know how your liver is working and if you use a double knot to tie your shoe laces. So beware. Life is interesting again!
