The Wolfe's (Writing) Den

Here dwells a creative writer

Welcome to the Wolfe's (Writing) Den

I’m J.C. Wolfe (or Jay C. Wolfe, hence the name of my blog). I’m a fiction writer and aspiring author of science fantasy and romance novels.

This is my blog, where I share my thoughts on various creative writing topics, my original stories and poetry, and eventually, information about my books.

Please, feel free to explore my site and follow my blog. I hope you enjoy your stay! Happy reading!

Who is J.C. Wolfe?

J.C. Wolfe is the artistic alter ego of a shy, nerdy 20-something-year-old biologist with a colorful imagination and a lifelong dream of being a fiction writer. A born-and-raised American, she lives six thousand miles from her true home in California, currently residing in the exotic southern region of Brazil. Her favorite literary genres include science fantasy and romance, and she hides behind a gender-neutral pen name while she weaves her endless thoughts and daydreams into stories meant to touch hearts and inspire the imagination of any soul who might cross her path.
