Josie loves all things Gothic and magical, but particularly a story which is fun, intriguing and says a little something about the world.
She loves to write about weird and wonderful happenings in her home town, London, but also sets her tales in the mystical lands of the Westcountry, England.
Josie's novella Liggers and Dreamers was published by Thin Man Press in 2015, and was described as 'beautifully written' by Heathcote Williams.
Meanwhile her YA/NA Salt Kisses series - a new-age 'mermance' - has garnered nearly four million reads on Wattpad. The first two books from the series are now published with Wise Ink. http://amzn.to/2ePcGdo
Josie is proud member of the Wattpad Futures Program and Editor of award-winning alternative news and culture publication La Bouche Zine. She has featured on the BBC Today Program on a feature about literary sub-culture. Josie also writes short stories and articles.
Honoured to have been on LonCon 'Most Successful Authors tell you how to do it' panel' http://beckyjerams.tumblr.com/post/135107770804/wattpad-con-2015
Look out for the annual 'under The Sea' writing contest, she co-hosts with @BrittanieCharmintine.

I'm Jessica. For non fiction writing, I go by Jessica B. Fry, but when it comes to fiction writing, I use the name J. M. Butler. It's a tribute to my grandfather, Jim Butler. The night before he died, he told me to keep writing and that he believed I could do it. Powerful words for a little girl, and so, even though I adore my husband, I use my maiden name for my fiction writing.
Currently, I work as a freelance writer as well as a lawyer. I adore writing in all of its stages, and I find it a delightful excuse to participate in new life experiences. I just call it research. :D
For those who want to know how they can help support the stories I'm writing, add the stories to your reading lists, vote on them, follow, or promote in some way. :) Right now, the story that I'm promoting the most is Tue-Rah: Identity Revealed. It's part of a fantasy series I've been working on for many years, and it's very dear to my heart. So if you want to make me happiest, check out that one.
I appreciate all that you readers have done, and there are more stories to come. Have a great day!
I write stories about magick, love and dark creatures lurking in the shadows. When not lost in Editland, you can find me reading a book from my towering tbr pile, fuelling my Wattpad addiction or kicking back and watching movies with my family. I live on an island, in the Pacific Northwest, surrounded by mermaids that are much nicer than the ones found in my books.

I know it might disappoint a lot of you, but I probably won't be continuing any of my stories since they were all written years ago and I just can't get back into writing any of them. There is so much editing to do and I just kind of want to move on with my writing. I won't take down any of the stories so everyone can still get a chance to read them, but none of them will be getting new chapters anytime soon. I hope that's understandable and I want to apologize. I hope you enjoy the new stories i write just as much.

Hi! My names Violet. I love to dance and can do modern, contemporary and ballet. Not to brag or anything, but I'm pro at ballet.
I love dancing and followed my dream to get me to where I am today. Never give up on your dreams because you will regret it...
I love life and live it to the fullest. My inspirational motto is: live life like its your last day and dance like nobody's watching! So follow it all you lovely people! Unless you can't dance... Then only follow the first bit hehe
Also, remember you're all beautiful and handsome people that all have a future ahead of you. Your future will only be what you make of it, so don't waste it. You may have everyday, but you only die once and you'll never know when... But don't worry, be happy! I love that song haha :P
