About Me

A WORD:

       I am Texas born and raised. Living in Central Florida. Hanging out with pirates and playing with the dolphins.  What do I do? Make Magic.

Story Spinner, Tale Weaver, Fate-maker, World Creator, Mythology Bender, Star Mapper, Journey Planner, Fortune Teller.

      You know, the best thing about being a writer is you don’t have to make excuses for pretending. It’s part of the job.   Where do all the stories come from? I believe it is the human condition that makes us all heroes and villains, saints or monsters.   Life is the mythology of living that creates the stories of our lives and imaginations. 

ABOUT:    

Juneta writes speculative fiction.  She always wanted to live someplace tropical, so she semi-retired early from police/fire/EMT-911 communications dispatch and moved to the Sunshine State.    

     What the heck is Speculative Fiction? Well, Wikipedia says…  “It encompasses the genres of science fiction, fantasy, science fantasy, horror, alternative history, and magic realism.”

     Here is what she says about her writing:  My stories tend toward a smorgasbord of myth, legend, folklore, spiritual history thrown into a mixed up “grab bag” of paranormal fun, loaded with adventure, mystery and a touch of romance.  

     The other half is Gothic – Steampunkish Space Opera fueled by the fight against tyranny and oppression, space battles, and characters with high personal stakes in the state of the universe, either way, it points toward fantastical exploits, whether human, non-human, mage, mystic, or pilot embracing all the complexity of human nature.

“The soul is stronger than its surroundings.”   ~William James

“You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you.” ~ Ray Bradbury, Zen in the Art of Writing
