About Me

Writing has always been a passion of J.V. Phaure, since her first creative writing lesson in Primary School. The very first story she wrote with depth was when she was ten and it was called 'The Pebble.' To this day she remembers it fondly. A story that as a little girl she had to wish to be anything, and whilst most of her class were wishing they were princesses and popstars, she wished she was a pebble in a pocket of a little girl, where she could travel to all the places the little girl travelled to. At an early age the imagination was awakening.

She penned her first novel at sixteen and left it in a memory box, unpublished.

A city girl at heart, she has lived in some amazing cities, Paris, New York and Trieste. She finally settled back down in London where she worked in publishing until she moved to North Essex.

In 2015, she turned her passion into a career. She had a dream, she had a passion and she wanted to chase and fulfil it. Her inspirations come from the people she watches and meets and the countries she has lived in.

Her novels and the inspiration she has invariably come from real-life events and she will write on real-life issues. She will often say "life isn't a I don't write them."

Her time is spent sitting on a beach writing, in between looking after her beautiful children. When she is not writing or running about after the children, you will no doubt find her chasing the wind and having some fun windsurfing, a sport she just loves. And when there is no wind she'll be getting muddy on her mountain bike.
