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 fantasy and science fiction 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.
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. She is a born-and-raised American, and after finishing grad school six thousand miles away in the exotic southern region of Brazil, she once again resides in her true home in California. Her favorite literary genres are fantasy and science fiction, 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.
