Greetings to those of you who took the time to check out my profile page.
Although, I write under 3 different pen names, Old BallBall, The Serious Mysterious Madame, and the Madame Mad Hatter, my name is just plain old Jett.
With the pen names of the Madame, you will find some very dark poetry. Poetry that throws wide open the doors of a soul that fell apart yet triumphed over what probably shouldn't have been in the first place.
But with the Old BallBall pen name you find this laughter. A laughter that came out of nowhere and healed a body that was falling apart medically. I swear the book Soapbox Moments started out as an act of revenge against a doctor that told me I would die if I went home and ended up healing that which I was ill with to start with. Funny how those things work.
Soapbox Moments is my daughter's favorite book that I have written to date. It has given her and my grand daughters little pieces of history.
Soapbox Moments also was healing in it allowed me to laugh at myself and all the crazy junk going on around me.
And then the Yoretime Spiral came to be born.
Out of nowhere it seemed the Spiral came as one little thought and then grew into this much loved child for me.
There are times that this crazy creative part of me thinks that the Spiral has a life on it's own and needs me only to give voice the stories or to artistically illustrate the places on the Spiral. (To date I have done 32 illustrations). I also always find myself left in the dark with what will come first....the story or the illustration.
Either way. For this moment in time the Spiral however it comes is one of the true loves of my life.
