Just apropos of nothing in particular.
JJ Leander is my pen name, and I now have five books out. Two are racy novelettes, and three are re-imaginings of the Rosary Mysteries, only from a fictional view point.
The racy novelettes are not x-rated, but the viewpoint is adult. There are many mysteries of Christianity included, hidden in the stories. I would not recommend them for anyone under 18.
My books are popular--among my family and friends, of course. I am writing because I never had time to write when I was working. For many years I worked either one or two jobs, because we needed to pay living expenses.
More about that another time.
When I finally stopped working, it was because my health, MS, Arthritis, Hypertension, Asthma, pain, depression and anxiety finally crashed me.
Completely. I had been fighting advice to stop, because we needed to pay expenses.
I was so very overdue for rest and recuperation, that I was IMMEDIATELY approved for disability.
We learned that it is ridiculous to expect a sick person to work. If you are sick and you think it is killing you, you are probably right. I learned that I was so fragile that some of the treatments for MS nearly killed me. Twice.
I am living the dream now. I am hopelessly behind in housework, and now do not give a ___ whether or not it is done. I write when I am not too tired and I research only when I am feeling pretty chipper.
My writing will never pay for itself. If you are truly interested look up JJ Leander in the Kindle section of Amazon. Eventually I will put them all in paperback.
Someday. Maybe. Or maybe not.
