What sort of stories do you write? And if you have anything published, tell us about it (even if it's not SF.) We love to hear about all your successes.

I write fantasy and mainstream fiction. Publications: Tamarack Award runner-up "Aim," forthcoming in Minnesota Monthly (Jan. '07); "Kissing Frogs" and "Fallen Idols" in Fantasy & Science Fiction; "All the Blue-Haired Ladies" in Great River Review.

What brings you to the SF Writers Meetup? Is there anything that you hope the group will do for you?

I'm a terrible procrastinator about writing, and in dire need of external motivating forces. So I'm hoping this group might help keep me on task, as well as providing a social outlet to talk craft with like-minded writers.


My short fiction has been published in both mainstream and speculative fiction markets. I'm a web communications director by day, a fiction writer by night, a wife and mother 'round the clock, and a procrastinator when I get around to it.

What Jaye L. is saying about this Meetup Group

I love how this group welcomes and supports writers at every level--from those who've had professional publications to those who are writing their first stories.

    Hi Jaye: Thanks for the "Shout." I'm looking forward to Tuesday evenings above Lunds. I might be a tad late--is that permissible?--b­ecuase of a job, which I'll hopefully be transitioning out of soon.

    Thanks, and hello to all.

    What can I say about Jaye that everyone else hasn't already said. She's a fantastic writer. I love reading her work. She's a marvelous critiquer, I've gotten some really valuable insights from her. And she is one of the pillars of strength in our meetup community.

    Jaye is a wonderful writer. I get prose envy every time I read of hear something Jaye has written. She is also a fine workshop organizer, running the group with class, humor, and an unblinking look of the realities of being a writer. Read her stories. If you don't, then you're just being silly!
