Oh hai! Welcome to my humble site

inno profileHello, I’m Jaymi Elford (also known as innowen online). I’m not too good with introductions, so this is gonna be brief. I’m a writer, tarot coach, firespinner and avid reader. I grew up in the suburbs of Denver and transplanted myself to the pacNorthwet. I’m mommy to 2 cats and I married my best friend, kender.

Writing is my life. As soon as I learned how to pen my name, I obsessively wrote it into books. I have an old copy of Dulac’s Snow Queen that bears witness to this (I cringe just thinking about it now though.) These days, you’ll find me writing dark fantasy stories for the Young Adult market and metaphysical topics. I love crafting stories that take place in a world-like-ours-but-only-slightly-different.

No matter where my life has taken me, my love for writing seems to always be there, in one form or another. I received a B.A. in Writing. My mind is active, spewing forth a constant stream of words: stories, articles, technical documentation. You name it, I’ve likely done it.

Other fun things about me:

  • Astrology sign: Leo
  • Favorite number: 88
  • Used to dye a blue streak in my hair
  • Very passionate about swirlies and harlequin prints
  • Perfect food: Sushi
  • I rescue books (although these days, I love my eBook library). I still support Powell’s
  • My name appears above Neil Gaiman’s in the Ravens in the Library listing
